Subramanian Swamy HRD Ministry is believed to have offered the post of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) vice chancellor to BJP leader Subramanian Swamy, but he has put some conditions before accepting the coveted post, said a PTI report on Monday. The reports said that HRD Minister Smriti Irani spoke to Swamy about the offer. It also said that BJP leader has placed some riders before the Ministry for accepting the offer. However Swamy did not confirmed any such offer. As soons as the report came, twitter went in a frenzy, with JNU VC becoming a top trend. While Swamy's supporters hailed this as the best thing for JNU, his detractors were shocked at the news with some warning a FTII like agitation against his appointment. However, some users were quick to point out that Swamy's appointment would not meet the current eligibility criteria for the JNU VC post. Interestingly, the development comes even before the Union Ministry is to finalise the search-cum-selection committee for selecting the new VC. The current VC S K Sopory is set to retire in January next year. As per the rules, a panel of names selected by the committee is sent to the President ( who is Visitor of the central varsities) by the HRD Ministry before the announcement of the new VC. The advertisements for inviting applications from the interested candidates for appointment of the new VC was given in August this year. (with PTI inputs)
