In an unprecedented situation, world famous Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) is functioning without a vice-chancellor over a week now, leading an administrative paralysis to the extent that a petrol pump on the university campus has gone dry for want of VC’s signatures to purchase fuel. After the Union human resource development ministry and the Allahabad high court appointed two different vice-chancellors within a week, the Supreme Court last Friday, 30th March ruled that neither would function as vice-chancellor or pro-vice chancellor and ordered the executive council to hold reins collectively till the appointment of a regular VC.
Disposing of a special leave petition filed by the AMU registrar, Justices Deepak Verma and KS Radhakrishnan said “the functioning of the university in the intervening period will be carried out by the executive council and would be implemented by the registrar”. “This arrangement, we have to work out, as we had to keep in mind the interest of the students, who are pursuing their courses in the university,” the order added. The AMU registrar had appealed against the Allahabad high court installing the senior most dean, Prof. Qazi Afzal Husain, as acting vice-chancellor, setting aside the appointment of Dr. Noor Mohammad, a retired 1977 batch IAS officer, a week earlier by the government. The AMU’s executive council will meet on April 12 to decide five names for the appointment of its new vice-chancellor while the university court will meet on April 15 to shortlist and recommend three from the list to President Pratibha Patil as the university visitor for the final appointment. A special meeting of the executive council, chaired by the President’s nominee Prof. AM Pathan, vice-chancellor of the Central University of Karnataka, Gulbara, drew up the schedule s after the Supreme Court order. The executive, who was asked by the Supreme Court to conduct the university business in the absence of a vice-chancellor, decided not to take any policy decision but restrict it self to carry on the routine work until appointment of a permanent vice-chancellor. It also dropped the idea of a small committee of its members to carry on the routine work in the absence of consensus. Instead, it decided to meet at regular intervals.
