Officials from the Telangana University conducted a third round of vigilance and enforcement discussions on Wednesday. The authorities examined records at the conference hall of the administration building. Professor Kanakayya and Professor Vidyavardhini, along with thirteen other faculty members and administrative staff, including Vijayalakshmi, Sayagoud, Bhaskar, Ayyi Vamidhi, Principal Kavitha Thoran from the South Campus, Junior Assistant Madhulika, and Infrastructure Director Shantabai were questioned for nearly three hours regarding allegations of unauthorized acquisitions of assets without permission from the governing body. The Registrar Professor Kanakayya and Professor Vidyavardhini were interrogated separately during this time.
Professor Vidyavardhini was questioned about allegations of embezzling 11 lakh rupees in advance ski-ming career. The details requested by officials regarding these allegations were not disclosed. Under the instruction of Vice-Chancellor Professor Ravindergupta from the university, investigations were conducted into the unauthorized acquisitions of assets until the arrest warrant was issued against him by the ACB. The EC members filed a complaint with the government for taking action against the VC and demanded that the proceedings be initiated on June 6. On June 13, they carried out investigations in the university, revealing several crucial details. On June 17, ACB officials, led by Professor Arun, carried out investigations at the office of Professor Arun in charge of examination control and gathered information about the details of the classrooms in the university premises. Subsequently, vigilance officials arrived at the university on Wednesday and interrogated faculty members and registrars from 11 am.
The Telangana University is one of the premier educational institutions in the state, renowned for its academic excellence and research contributions. It is disheartening to see such allegations being made against faculty members and administrative staff. The university administration should ensure a thorough investigation into these allegations and take appropriate action if any wrongdoing is found. This is crucial not only to maintain the reputation of the university but also to uphold the trust and confidence of students, parents, and the general public.
It is important for the university to maintain transparency and accountability in all its operations. Any form of corruption or unauthorized acquisition of assets should be dealt with strictly, and those found guilty should face legal consequences. It is also essential for the governing bodies and regulatory authorities to play an active role in overseeing the functioning of educational institutions and ensuring that ethical standards are upheld.
The Telangana University has always been committed to providing quality education and nurturing a conducive learning environment for its students. It is imperative for the university to address these allegations promptly and take necessary measures to prevent such incidents in the future. By doing so, it can continue to be a beacon of knowledge and innovation in the field of education.
