Interim VC Bajpayee meets with HNLU students

HNLU Raipur’s chancellor has appointed retired high court judge Justice CB Bajpayee as interim vice chancellor, following the resignation of Prof Sukh Pal Singh in the face of student strikes.

Bajpayee talked to the student bar association (SBA) office holders this evening, telling them that he would “work for the best interest of the students of the university”, according to a statement by students.

Students were “delighted with the positive approach of the newly appointed” VC.

The appointment is only temporary, and a full search committee for a permanent VC would be constituted in due course.

Bajpayee is the second acting VC in as many months, following Ravi Shankar Sharma, the Chhattisgarh state’s law department principal secretary, who had taken over after Singh’s first removal from HNLU in late August.
