Why CNLU campus is in lockdown protests over NUJS VC move • The cases for and against Bhat (and the case where there is none)

Protests continue at CNLU against Bhat appointmentProtests continue at CNLU against Bhat appointment

NUJS Kolkata vice chancellor Prof Ishwara Bhat's appointment to the post of CNLU Patna's VC has sparked a campus lock down protest at CNLU, uniting students within 24 hours of us having first published the news of Bhat's selection to lead the Bihar law college.

Students have demanded a stay on Bhat's appointment order until publication of the NUJS review commission report - that Bhat has now allegedly been buried for months - without an extension of outgoing vice chancellor Dr A Lakshminath's term as vice chancellor at CNLU.

According to a letter of demands, written by CNLU students, they object to:

  • Bhat's appointment in part due to the no-confidence petitions against him by NUJS' Student Juridical Association (SJA),
  • Lakshminath potentially continuing in other positions at CNLU after his retirement, as well as
  • a lack of transparency in the VC-appointment process.

One student involved in the protests, which do not have a formal leadership since CNLU does not have an elected student body, told us: “We the student community of CNLU believes that no student body protests against an administration of their university, without basing their arguments on valid or reasonable grounds, as administration always have the power to retaliate.”

“Since his administration has been repeatedly called into question in the past, by both students and faculty, it would [go] against our beliefs to grant [the CNLU VC position to Bhat],“ added the student.

We have reached out for comment to Bhat and Lakshminath, but have not heard back.

What CNLU students want, and why

(Note: For the avoidance of doubt, we have never reported any allegations against Bhat having been personally involved in “financial embezzlement” or “corruption", although the SJA alleged that he did not take sufficient action against the impropriety of others, with which others disagree).

According to the students' letter, they demand the following:

1. Cancellation of appointment of new Vice Chancellor Prof.(Dr.) P. Ishwara Bhat. It is pertinent to note that Prof. (Dr.) Ishwara Bhat has had two ‘No-Confidence' petitions against him by the Student Juridical Association, NUJS during his six year tenure. Prof. Bhat's style of administering affairs at NUJS including problems under the heads such as corruption, arbitrariness in appointment of Faculty, his inaction against the allegations of sexual harassment, financial embezzlement, transparency, academics, infrastructure, health and hygiene, curbing student liberties out of retribution, mismanagement of University Funds. In light of the above contentions raised against him, we implore you to address this issue as a matter of utmost importance, as his alleviation to this position of High Integrity is extremely questionable.

The CNLU students' demands continue:

2. No extension and non- continuance of the incumbent Vice Chancellor to hold any post in the University. We are highly aggrieved with various issues of concern under his administration since the inception of the university including lack of transparency in allocation of funds, absence of permanent faculty and academic initiatives, no infrastructural development, no accountability and transparency in administrative procedures, absence of administrative support for organising cultural and academic events among others. Hence, no interim post shall be created for him such as Chairman or Pro- Chancellor.

3. Procedure for the appointment of new Vice Chancellor should begin from the preliminary stage of inviting applications for the same. Students of CNLU should be made aware of the procedure, criteria, and actions taken for the appointment of the new Vice Chancellor with absolute transparency. Till the appointment of a new Vice Chancellor, the Hon'ble Chancellor of CNLU shall serve as the interim Vice Chancellor to govern the institutional and functional aspect of the University.

The situation at CNLU is exacerbated by students' belief that outgoing vice chancellor Lakshminath has operated CNLU in an opaque manner, without having given students any account of funds received by the state and how they had been utilised.

One student told us that CNLU still lacked a sufficient moot court hall and auditorium, while faculty appointments were sometimes arbitrary and several permanent faculty positions have been unfilled for a while.

Bhat himself has not been great on the transparency front (though in fairness, neither have a lot of other law school VCs).

Some CNLU students also appear to have repeated more serious allegations on social media against Bhat.

However, for the record and to the best of our knowledge these are unsubstantiated, and there have never been any public allegations of financial impropriety against Bhat himself. NUJS students had, however, in a no confidence motion alleged that Bhat did not take sufficient action over others' financial irregularities that had come to light (others have argued that Bhat actually made good efforts in investigating allegations of corruption in the administration - see more details below).

Dubbing it a “#thumbsdownrevolt” on social media such as Facebook and Twitter, the protesting CNLU students have also published a change.org petition entitled “To seek urgent intervention against appointment of Prof Ishwara Bhat as the VC, CNLU Patna”, on the night of 16 March, from when they have been sitting at the gates of CNLU's campus.

That online petition currently has just under 900 signatures.

Students have also recorded a video of their discussions with CNLU academic council member and VC search committee member PK Sahi, in which they repeated more serious allegations against Bhat, citing previou Legally India articles. Sahi rejected those as insufficient evidence of some of the charges the students alleged.

(Note: Again, for the record, we have never previously reported of any financial impropriety on Bhat's part, nor have we heard of any credible allegations to date.)

The cases for and against Bhat

We have, however, reported the two no confidence motions against Bhat's style of administration by the SJA (as well as by NUJS alumni in 2014).

The SJA petitions we were told had been triggered by alleged infrastructural deficiencies, a lack of transparency in administration, and other problems at NUJS.

An anonymous but fairly balanced rebuttal on website Quora in response to the question “Is it a good thing for CNLU that they are getting NUJS VC Ishwara Bhat? Is he actually as bad as Legally India articles portray him to be?”, argued that Bhat's reputation was in-part a matter of bad PR (we can't necessarily confirm the veracity of all of the below allegations), but in the interest of balance have reproduced them in full since Bhat has not answered our calls for comment since last week:

Ishwar Bhat has been at NUJS for 6 years now. To be honest, his initial years at NUJS were not very good. He did not come from NLU background so he really screwed up initially. For example, he decided that people with one year LLM (Most people who do their LLM from UK or USA have one year LLM degree) degree cannot be hired and cannot be promoted. Now, that is plain stupid because usually the brighter academics got their LLMs abroad. They left NUJS en masse.

Also what went against him big time was that he picked up a fight with Prof Shamnad Basheer, an enormously popular teacher at NUJS, who had influences and admirers in very high places. Shamnad Basheer resigned after fighting with the VC agains and again for what he felt is right, and that launched a avalanche of bad publicity for the VC. Funny thing is that the VC wasn’t really agains Basheer, rather some other faculty members were gunning for him due to basheers increasing status at NUJS and feared that he may soon become the VC, which they wanted to avoid at any cost.

However, while these juggernaut got rid of Basheer by keeping the gun on the VCs shoulder, it earned the VC serious bad raps with students, alumni and other people close to NUJS. Since then, platforms like legallyindia has been hammering away at the VC for years at every chance they got.

On the other hand, after mass exodus of good faculty, students went on a belligerent mode. They sent off letters to everyone from CJI to law minister.

All this while, the registrar was engaging in massive corruption. Student activists soon discovered this and went for his throat. The VC saw first hand the power of students at NUJS. He decided to be student friendly henceforth and have tried his best to keep the students in good humour. While as an academician or administrator he is no match to MP Singh, his predecessor, he tried his best to do some good work at NUJS despite massive backlash from faculty members.

He tried to curb corruption. For one, he fought a legal battle against the corrupt registrar and saw it to logical end over 1.5 years. Usually a VC will file a police complaint and forget. But he filed cases in the high court, contested every application the registrar filed to save himself, hired good lawyers and effectively destroyed him.

He installed a ERP system to reduce delays and corruption. When there is an electronic trail of every work being done, it is a lot more difficult to engage in corruption. It is also a big antidote to the bureaucracy and inefficiency that is widespread amongst NUJS staff.

He introduced procurement regulations at every stage. For mess, for library, for any public works - no mare opportunities to for the faculty members and staff members to make some extra buck on the side. This made him a great number of enemies within NUJS administration.

He introduced many academic regulations that required faculty members to perform rather than make students happy by doling out favours. This made him enemies amongst students as well as faculty members.

he introduced CCTV cameras in classrooms, which ensured that faculty members had to come to class on time, could not leave the students early, and could not give fake attendance to students. Again, this was a major reason more students got angry with him.

He started appointing government contractors like PWD for every work in the campus, cutting out all possibility of allegation of corruption.

He undertook a massive infrastructure upgradation project, made new auditoriums, put AC in classrooms, upgraded mess hall and equipments everywhere. He even repaired the roads and lights which were in a bad condition.

His biggest feat is however getting land from west bengal government for expansion of NUJS campus. He got almost 1 acre of land and sanctioned a plan to develop a hostel that will accommodate 600 students more. He even planned a terrace cafe.

If his plans are carried out, in his presence or absence, NUJS will be transformed for once and all.

However, his past reputation continues to haunt him. he really needs a good PR person who can help to improve his image by putting out the real facts about him. That is all I can say.

Students really don’t care because the VC has managed to keep them mostly happy. You cannot judge what the students want by reading anonymous comments on legallyindia. Most of those are clearly written by angry faculty members and staff who are missing their access to power or side income.

If you agree, disagree or would like to respond to the above, we welcome your views in the comments.

Protests in Patna continue

Meanwhile, protests continue at CNLU.

Though the law school lacks a student body, this is not CNLU's first experience with student protests against the administration: for instance, in 2011 they went on hunger strike over a lack of job opportunities, while also briefly protesting against sexual harassment by faculty.

Call for NLU solidarity against Bhat appointment as CNLU VCCall for NLU solidarity against Bhat appointment as CNLU VC

At one point media was at the campus gates - resulting in some coverage - with numbers of protesting students ranging from 20, upwards. At another time the page admin posted:

Some guys are still carrying our cause and sitting on VC's gate.That is the true spirit of this protest.Today we realised that us protesting for few hours is not the answer.Thus we humbly request every guy who can get out of the hostel to please join the guys and all the girls to join them 5:00 am as soon as the gate opens. Also this protest will continue 24hrs from tomorrow,even the girls are requested to stay out all night. This is the only answer and way.

According to sources, CNLU students have been in touch with the NUJS Student Juridical Association (SJA) since 15 March, when we published about Bhat's appointment order, and the current protest adds to internal pressure at NUJS from the SJA on Bhat not to bury the first ever review commission report of NUJS.

NUJS students are extremely activism driven and unlike other NLUs they run the campus. If the VC was bad they would have thrown him out long back by protesting. They did mild protests that led the VC to realize his mistakes and thereafter perform well so he doesn't find much challenge from students. From look of things, he may stay back at NUJS now that there is so much protest.

I am puzzled to see LI going soft on Bhat. Please note the following:

1. First of all, a Pune ILS graduate with no connection with NUJS has been posting pro-Bhat propaganda, and seems to have posted the answer on Quora as well. I am not posting his name here, but if you go to the Bar & Bench comment section you will see his name. Please don't get swayed by this guy who seems to have some vested agenda. Some of Bhat's stooges are also posting such comments

2. It is a documented fact that Naveen Thayil --- BALLB, NSLIU; LLM, SOAS; PhD Tilburg, well-published scholar ---- had applied for a faculty position at NUJS. Bhat refused to interview him and instead hired his own students from Mysore, who were inferior in every way. How is this not corruption?

3 Isn't it a fact that top faculty from NUJS left for NLUD and Jindal? Isn't this proof of bad governance?

4. Furthermore, isn't it a fact that he has resisted hiring NUJS alumni with LLMs from top universities?

5. If Bhat has done such an excellent job of upgrading infra, how come NUJS has had the worst website of all NLUs for donkey's years?

While I agree that corruption can be used in a lot of different context, which don't necessarily equate to financial embezzlement, I think the C word is a very loaded one.

I was getting concerned that in the excitement of some of the CNLU protests the C word was being used perhaps too liberally, which had a danger of developing into its own narrative, divorced from reality, hence the multiple clarifications here.

Regarding the Quora post, I think it's only fair to also have someone defend him, even if he won't do it himself.

We're not really out to get any VC (or law firm for that matter). But inevitably, when a VC or law firm doesn't comment, then our narrative ends up being a bit one-sided, so we're happy to balance that out where it seems appropriate.

Since you started with "Isn't it true", let me clarify a few things:
Regarding point 2, no, that is not corruption, because Naveen could not physically appear for the interview and insisted on a Skype one. Of course, it could have been relaxed, but was not done. You can call that bureaucratic or traditionalism or several other unflattering things, but not corruption.
Regarding point 3, in the last 6 years, exactly 2 faculty members left NUJS for JGLS. Sorry to burst your bubble, but I've been taught by both and neither was much good. Of course, some good people left, like people usually do when a regime change happens. An amazing teacher left after MP Singh had taken charge.
Regarding point 4, not if the alumni fulfilled all the UGC requirements he hasn't. If NUJS is taking UGC funds, it has to abide by UGC regulations. The regulations may be bad, but they are still binding. Just to clarify though, currently more than 25% teachers at NUJS belong to LLB alumni from NLUs. If you include LLM alumni, it would almost double. Apart from perhaps NLUD, no other NLU can claim that. That's a fact, which Kian can easily check.
I don't know much about points 1 and 5 and so won't comment on those.

Very well qualified, but then not "much good" for you. No problem they left, Bhat is great, the wonderful jewels he hired and promoted are infinitely superior. After all, they give you marks generously and sign blank letters of recommendation. And they are "UGC qualified" (which NALSAR and NLUD do not insist on, but hey, don't blame Bhat).

It all makes sense now. The reason why NUJS students never protested against Bhat and are happy with the state of affairs.

Just hilarious how Bhat's supporters are working overtime to post pro-Bhat messages here and desperately ensure that the CNLU appointment goes through. Remember everyone: TWO no-confidence motions signed by 95% of the students were passed against Bhat, including one just 6 months or so ago. Before that, a petition on change.org by alumni and students was circulated. Don't be stupid enough to get swayed by a few messages here. Facts speak for themselves.

As for the remarks about faculty, many who left have stated that they left only because of Bhat. Curious how good scholars like Shamnad Basheer, Sudhir Krishnaswamy, Prima Baruah etc are suddenly being trashed on this board with comments saying NLU alumni are overrated.

I thus request everyone at NUJS and CNLU to continue the fight and not get swayed. Even Lalu Yadav, Mulayam etc have their supporters. Doesn't make them great leaders.

Okay, I have no pro or anti-statement to make about Bhat, having not met him personally. However, ROFL's comment has raised a point that should be addressed. Now, the three names he mentioned, Shamnad, Sudhir and Pritam, if you just look at it impartially, two of them have joined private universities after leaving NLUs (Pritam of course left for his Ph.D. originally), while the other one is not associated with any university as such at this point. Another person, Prabhash Ranjan, who left during this period, also has joined a private university since then. Now, irrespective of the administration's competence (or lack thereof), you cannot really paint the departing place in a bad light if the people leaving are looking for better opportunities not possible to be provided within the scope of government-aided NLUs (which have their own limitations). Moreover, contrary to what ROFL implied, not all of these three (only Shamnad, I think) has ever mentioned that the admin was the reason why they left. Pro-Bhat and Anti-Bhat people are both distorting facts to suit their own narratives here. Pritam actually joined Jindal from NLUD, does that mean Ranbir Singh is to blame? If you want to compare NUJS admin with other comparable NLU admins, then refer to faculty members who have left and joined comparable positions. I think only two would qualify there among the good teachers (Daniel Mathew and Chinmayi Arun), both having joined NLUD. Have you found anyone joining NLSIU or NALSAR or NLUJ or NLIU after leaving NUJS? Not that I am aware of. NLUD is of course a special case among NLUs, having access to huge state funds and a pretty good admin as Ranbir Singh. So if you want to mention Arun or Mathew as examples of faculty leaving due to NUJS admin, I can take that, not the others. I can of course go on to argue that of the people ROFL mentioned, irrespective of their reputation as scholars, not all were good teachers (Pritam was good, Prabhash was outstanding, Shamnad hardly had to take classes because as Chair Professor that wasn't part of his mandate anyway), but Kian's eagle eyes today aren't allowing the slightest negative criticism of individual teachers to pass through, only the vanilla good stuff, so will stop here. I repeat, I have nothing favourable to say for Bhat as a VC, since he wasn't my VC, but don't distort the faculty issue to suit your narrative. Good people leave if they get better offers, unless they hve really invested in an institution, and none of the people you mentioned had such an NUJS connect. I have heard one or two good people have also joined since then (Kumarjit and all), so it balances out a bit too, doesn't it?

Kian,please cover the hypocrisy of Nivedita Menon and left wing media. In the case of Prof Johri (the pro-BJP JNU prof) they called for his head and he has been arrested. Yet in the case of Lawrence Liang they are defending him.

Why should NUJS students protest against Bhat when they are getting freebies in terms of attendance, special repeat exams and every thing under the sun for students without attending classes, without giving examinations on schedule and things like that.

This is not a comment on the merit of the protest. The quality of English used by CNLU students is appalling- "alleviation" to this position- how do you mistake "elevation" thus?
