Aaditya Thackeray seeks filling up of vacant-posts in Mumbai University
Congratulating Suhas Raghunath Pednekar on being appointed as the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Mumbai, Yuva Sena Chief Aaditya Thackeray on Friday sought the filling up of vacant posts at the university. The principal of the city-based Ramnarain Ruia Autonomous College, Suhas Raghunath Pednekar, has been appointed as the new Vice Chancellor of the University of Mumbai today. Here's more.
Previous VC was removed after protests from Yuva Sena
Maharashtra Governor Vidyasagar Rao made the appointment. "I congratulate Suhas Pednekar for being appointed as the VC. Also, thank the Governor for his appointment," Thackeray said in a statement. "The previous VC was removed after protests from the Yuva Sena. The new VC has a lot of responsibilities on his shoulder including undoing the mess that has been created in Mumbai university," he said.
Appointments should also be done to fill up vacant posts
"Like the VC who was appointed today, appointments should also be done to fill up vacant posts of Pro-Vice Chancellor, Controller of Examinations and Registrar," Thackeray said.
Yuva Sena will stand firmly behind the new VC
Thackeray added the Yuva Sena will stand firmly behind the new VC and said it will keep a tab on the university's administration. Pednekar, a professor of chemistry, has been appointed as the VC for a period of five years or till he attains the age of 65 years, whichever is earlier, a Raj Bhavan statement said. He succeeds Sanjay Deshmukh.
