Senior BJP leader, Subramanian Swamy is believed to have been offered the post of Vice Chancellor of prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.
A ccording to PTI, the offer has come direcrly from the HRD Minister, Smriti Irani but Swamy has reportedly asked for certain conditions to be met before he could accept this offer.
It’s not clear what his reservations are, but the reported offer will become hugely controversial as the HRD ministry is yet to appoint individuals who will form whats known as search-cum-appointment committee to appoint the VC.
The current VC’s term ends in January next year. Should Swamy accepts this offer, it will be quite an interesting appointment of right leaning hardcore politician as VC in an institution known for its left leaning intellectual wisdom.
