Declaring that the University’s present and former Vice Chancellors and Registrar were misleading the public by distorting and misinterpreting the facts, Com Manasayya stated: “We stand our ground and reiterate our allegations of irregularities in management of casual labourers, violation of labour laws and misappropriation of public funds at UAS-R with documentary support.” “Let the authorities reveal why they did not follow the Karnataka Transparency in Public Procurement Act between 2009 and 2014 for supplying labourers to the University,” he demanded. Pointing out that the former Vice Chancellor B.V. Patil was most to be blamed for his involvement in widespread irregularities and misappropriation of public funds during his tenure, he said that it was up to the present Vice Chancellor to lodge a complaint with the police against Patil.
Com Manasayya declared that his organisation would shortly move JMFC Court in Raichur seeking a CBI investigation into allegations against UAS-R administration, particularly against Dr. Patil. “We have already written to the Principal Secretary, Department of Agriculture, demanding CBI probe into the irregularities and misappropriation of funds. If we don’t receive any response within 15 days, we will approach Court,” he said.
The Casual Labourers’ Association also demanded a joint investigation into the allegations by a team comprising representatives of Labour Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, UAS-R administration, Casual Labourers’ Association and auditors. “We are ready for the cross-checking exercise. Let the UAS-R facilitate it. Let the Government order a CBI probe if the irregularities and misappropriation are detected in this preliminary exercise,” labour leaders declared at the press conference.
