Professor Singh, who was the chairman of the CPMT-2007 has given his resignation letter to Governor and Chancellor T V Rajeswar here after a fresh CPMT results were announced.
Announcing his resignation on moral ground, the VC said that he has taken the decision without any pressure from any quarters.

He, however, maintained that the controversy in the results was not new in the state or country as similar lapses were witnessed during several other examinations in the past.
Yesterday, UP government had said that there was no scam and only a technical flaw in the declaration of CPMT 2007 results, according to a nine-member probe team constitued to detect any irregularities.
During prima facie investigation it was found that the programming was faulty and it was not cross-checked manually. As per the irregularity it was found that the Key (answersheet)of set-1 was wrongly repeated for set-2, set-3 and set-4 also.
The Mayawati government, had withheld the earlier results announced today last after irregularities were reflected in it, which had created panic among the students. Furious mobs of students had taken to the streets at several places, while one student had committed suicide.
