Who will be V-C of Pt. BD Sharma Health University in Rohtak?
A million dollar question being asked in political, administrative and media circles is that who will be the Vice-Chancellor of Rohtak's Pt. Bhagwat Dyal Sharma Health University?

Faculty members of the university and BD Sharma Medical College, Rohtak are more curious to know about who would be the Vice-Chancellor. University's present Vice-Chancellor Dr. S.S. Sangwan has resigned from his post about a month back so that Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Chief Minister of Haryana could appoint his favorite as Vice-Chancellor for the full term of three years.

Term of Dr. S.S Sangwan was completing in next seven months. After Dr. Sangwan's resignation, the executive committee of the University in its meeting, that was convened hurriedly, constituted a search committee. Following the old proverb that charity begins at home, Bhupinder Singh Hooda had reportedly pressurized the search committee members to recommend the name of a close relative of his wife for the post.

Highly placed sources told that concerned person was not having required qualifications for the post. One of the aspirants for the top post had also reportedly sent representations to Jagannath Pahadia, the then Governor against that person citing various rules and regulations of Medical Council of India.

Although Governor, Pahadia had cleared several files including appointment of Dr. Asha Kadiyan, as Vice-Chancellor of the only women university, Bhagat Phool Singh Women University, Khanpur late in night under pressure from Bhupinder Singh Hooda but he did not cleared the file for the appointment of Vice-Chancellor of the Health University to avoid controversy. So at present Dr. S.S. Sangwan is holding the charge of V-C of the University.

Date of Assembly polls is likely to be announced in second or third week of August and it is unlikely that search committee will recommend name of some other candidates suitable to Bhupinder Singh Hooda.
