Chandigarh, Oct 18:

Within days of Punjab Governor asking the Bhagwant Mann government to remove Dr GS Wander as vice-chancellor of the Baba Farid Medical University, there is yet another administrative lapse in the appointment of Satbir Singh Gosal as vice-chancellor of the Punjab Agriculture University to which the governor has taken exception and has asked the chief Minister Bhagwant Mann to remove him immediately as his appointment violated the protocol.

The Governor, in his letter to the chief minister, pointed out that the appointment by the state government had been made without the consent of the Chancellor.

He has asked the Chief minister to immediately relinquish Gosal of the charge and the responsibilities of the PAU be entrusted to the state Agriculture Secretary.

BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh said the AAP government was deliberately challenging the authority of the Governor and is thus causing a constitutional break-down in the state. "Such incidents are not only bringing disgrace to the accomplished personalities but are also demonstrating how bankrupt the state government has become in discharging its responsibilities and duties' ', Chugh added.
