Student leader submits RTI reply to Vigilance

The Tribune: Patiala: Tuesday, May 22, 2018.      
Punjabi University student leader Harvinder Singh Sandhu on Monday submitted a copy of the RTI reply regarding an alleged scam in Punjabi University Senior Secondary Model School to the state Vigilance Bureau office. It occurred after he stated that the university had failed to form a committee to probe the matter.
University officials have said a four-member committee, comprising the school principal, executive engineer’s office, Dean College and the SDO, has been formed to look into the matter. University Registrar Manjit Singh Nijjar said: “We have formed a committee comprising the four members. We also want to expand the panel by including the Registrar’s office and the office of Dean Academics.
Harvinder said: “The authorities have been giving contracts for school repair and new construction at higher prices to preferred contractors. I had given the copy of the RTI reply to the office over 10 days ago. All cases pertaining to the university should have been solved within it. I had to go to the Vigilance Bureau as the university failed to act in time.”
