Patiala, April 1

Punjabi University’s acting Vice-Chancellor (VC) Ravneet Kaur has appointed Dr Varinder Kumar Kaushik, professor, Department of Punjab School of Law, as the university registrar for a year.

The move comes after over 40 university senior functionaries went on a resignation spree as a mark of protest over pending promotions.

Sources said the VC today reached the university campus, accompanied by the police, including Deputy Commissioner Kumar Amit and Patiala SSP Vikramjeet Duggal.

She was later met by protesting students of a political party demanding the opening of the university for classes. The students also opposed the police force on the campus.

University professors, who had recently relinquished their posts, said they had received calls from the university administration, seeking resignation letters.

Meanwhile, the VC said: “The Registrar was appointed today. Apart from this, we will hold a meeting with key functionaries for taking further steps. Also, we have decided to hold a meeting of the finance committee and the Syndicate coming Monday.”
