Jammu, Dec 10: National Secular Forum (NSF) has demanded a high level probe through Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to unbundle the fraud committed by Vice Chancellor of Jammu University (JU) Prof Ramji Dass Sharma in regularizing the services of three persons in Department of Lifelong Leaning (DLL) against two posts and subsequently granting them the effect of service from back date in lieu of monetary considerations.
Addressing a press conference here today, National Secular Forum (NSF) President Dr Vikas Sharma highlighted that JU authorities had engaged three persons against two posts in the Department of Lifelong Learning in 2008. "Later, two of them were absorbed against the two posts of Project Officers. However, the third person Sandeep Singh was absorbed against the post of Programme Officer (converted to the post of Assistant Professor) without holding any interview. Interestingly, 41 applications were received by the University for the Post of Programme Officer in 2013. But, the post was clandestinely converted into a teaching post and Sandeep Singh was adjusted on the same," he claimed.
"Cunningly, the Vice Chancellor took the route of University Syndicate (held on January 25, 2016 and August 20, 2016) to legalize all his illegal acts as he himself chaired its meetings. Unable to understand the modus operandi and hidden motive of Prof Ramji Dass Sharma (Vice Chancellor) behind the Agenda Item pertaining to appointments in DLL and granting back date effect of service, the members gave nod," he added.
