Guwahati, Jan 28: The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU), Dibrugarh University (DU) unit has called upon the Assam Governor to institute a high-level investigation into the alleged financial irregularities and misuse of public funds by Dibrugarh University Vice-Chancellor, Ranjit Tamuli.
The students’ union today staged an agitation in front of the vice-chancellor’s office on the campus of Dibrugarh University, holding placards and banners.
“We have submitted a memorandum against the financial irregularities and mismanagement of public funds in Dibrugarh University but no inquiry has been initiated till date. We demand a high-level committee be constituted to investigate the matter,” David Hazarika, central executive member of AASU, said.
The students’ union alleged that the vice-chancellor had submitted forged invoices to withdraw public funds.
The Dibrugarh University Teachers’ Association (DUTA) had also urged the Assam Governor-cum-chancellor of the university recently to institute a high-level probe into the alleged financial irregularities and misuse of public funds in the university.
