Two days after Ghanaur MLA Madan Lal Jalalpur levelled allegations of being a ‘right-wing’ agent against Punjabi University Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof Arvind, the Punjabi University Teachers’ Association (PUTA) has condemned the statement and demanded action against him from the Chief Minister.
It was during Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi’s visit to the campus on Wednesday when MLA Madan Lal Jalalpur passed remarks against the Vice-Chancellor.
Talking to The Tribune, the MLA said he was displeased over the environment on the campus in which protests were being held during the Chief Minister’s visit.
Meanwhile, in a press statement, the Punjabi University Teachers’ Association said, “MLA Madan Lal Jalalpur issued derogatory statements against the university Vice-Chancellor in the presence of Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi and called him an RSS agent. These allegations are baseless and false and have affected the university as well.”
“We appeal to the Chief Minister to take appropriate action in this regard,” the association added.
Meanwhile, maintaining his earlier stance the Vice-Chancellor stated that he was contemplating taking the matter to court. “I had a word with my lawyer. We might first send the MLA a legal notice for which I am providing him video proofs,” the Vice-Chancellor said.
