Silly Mistake Of Visva-Bharati On Their Letter Head Sparks Controversy


Bolpur: Visva-Bharati authority sent a thanking letter to the local administration which is completely unethical as it holds wrong name of Vice-Chancellor and Chancellor on their letter head.

প্রশাসনকে ধন্যবাদ দিতে গিয়ে বিতর্কে জড়াল বিশ্বভারতী

As Visva-Bharati authority says, “they wanted to send a thanking letter on VB’s letter head to the District Magistrate and the police super for the co-operation in arranging Poush Mela this year.” That showed the recent picture.

By the norms of a Central University Prime Minister is the chancellor of the university. But the sent letter contains the name of Mr. Manmohan Shing who was former Prime Minister of the country. Apart from this, Mr. Susanta Dattagupta who was dismissed for corruption from the VC’s position is still there instead of present officiating VC Mr. Swapan Kumar Datta.

It is raising the question of irresponsibility of such renowned and historic institution that a old letter head is holding a current letter to the administration.

Former student and peers of the university expressed shame for such incident in a place like Shantiniketan which is known as abode of peace throughout the world made by Rabindranath Tagore. These kind of incident can reduce the pride of Visva-Bharati.
