Kolkata: Following initiatives to appoint Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as the Chancellor of state-run universities, some prominent personalities have expressed their reservations about the move.

It may be recalled that the state cabinet has decided that Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will be the Chancellor of the universities which are under other departments besides the education department.

However, some of the prominent people are not satisfied with the state government’s initiative. They demanded that any academician must be appointed as the Chancellor. They say that someone with no political affiliation should be appointed to the post.

“Any political or administrative headmaster will violate the rights of educational institutions,” the personalities said via a joint statement signed by drama personality Bibhas Chakraborty, Kaushik Sen, artist Sameer Aich, film director Anik Dutt and many others. At the same time, they have also opposed the fact that the Governor holds the post of Chancellor.

According to prominent people, they do not want any politics in educational institutions. Therefore, they think that only people free from political influence should hold the prestigious post.
