Result, yet again: CNLU students get retired district judge as new acting registrar

CNLU students keep up momentum, get ex-judge as new acting registrar
CNLU students keep up momentum, get ex-judge as new acting registrar

CNLU Patna appointed retired district judge Manoranjan Prasad Srivastava as its acting registrar on 11 April, following the resignation last week of its former registrar SP Singh, whose removal CNLU students had demanded with protests on campus.

The 11 April order of vice chancellor (VC), retired high court judge Mridula Mishra stated:

Shri Manoranjan Prasad Srivastava (retired district judge) shall be the acting registrar of the Chanakya National Law University, Patna to look after the day-to-day work of the university til further orders with immediate effect.

Singh had commented last week: “I had been discharging the duty as registrar [for the last 10 years].

“I requested Hon’ble [vice chancellor] madam to relieve me from this post on 2 April so that I can concentrate on my study and look after my ailing mother. She relieved me on 6 April.”

The students have not yet been notified about the formation of a new VC search committee to replace the last selected candidate for the post - former NUJS VC Ishwara Bhat - whose appointment to head CNLU was vehemently opposed by lock down protests by CNLU students.
