The West Bengal gathering on Monday passed a bill that tried to supplant Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar with Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee as the chancellor of all state-run colleges, in the midst of resistance by the BJP lawmakers.

State schooling priest Bratya Basu, subsequent to presenting The West Bengal University Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2022 in the House, said there was “nothing out of sorts” in boss pastor taking over as the chancellor.

“For what reason might the main clergyman at any point be the chancellor of state colleges in the event that the Prime Minister is the chancellor of a focal college – – Visva Bharati? You can go through the suggestions of the Punchhi Commission…

“The lead representative, who is the current chancellor, has abused conventions on different events,” Basu said.

The bill was passed after 182 individuals casted a ballot for the regulation and 40 against it in the 294-part Assembly.

Restricting the bill, resistance BJP affirmed that naming the main priest as chancellor would prompt direct “political impedance” in the state’s advanced education framework.

“The state government needs to control everything. The choice to designate the CM as chancellor of colleges is being taken to work with direct obstruction of the decision party in the state’s schooling system,” BJP MLA Agnimitra Paul affirmed. PTI
