Sub.: Video-graphy of Interviews for Various Faculty Positions in the University
You have been insisting on transparency in the University affairs. In your Republic Day speech also you harped on the theme of transparency. This is in keeping with the sentiment expressed by you that PUTA demands that interviews conducted by the University for various faculty positions be video-graphed henceforth. We believe that if transparency is needed, it is at this stage most. Otherwise the whole idea of transparency remains bogus and is no more than an empty-rhetoric. Recently due to demands by Senators, you acceded to the demand of video-graphing the Senate proceedings. This step has been appreciated by all. The University shall stand to gain if it video-graphs its interviews as well.
If our demand is not paid attention to we shall be constrained to approach the highest authorities of the land to ensure that selections do not become controversial. In the recent past the University’s reputation has suffered a setback as the name of the persons selected for various positions were making rounds in the public beforehand.
