The Mamta government has taken a big decision in West Bengal. In Bengal, now instead of the governor, the chief minister himself will be the chancellor. This has been announced by West Bengal Minister Bratya Basu. 

Problems with the appointment of Vice Chancellor

Education Minister Bratya Basu said that in the cabinet meeting, it has been decided that the Chancellor will now be the Chief Minister and not the Governor in the state government-run universities. He will soon implement it by changing the law in the assembly. Earlier in the university run by the state government, the chancellor was the governor and he used to appoint the vice-chancellor in the university.

There were reports of tug of war in Bengal regarding the appointment of Vice-Chancellor in universities. The Mamata government of Bengal had alleged that Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar had appointed several vice-chancellors without the consent of the state government. That's why the Mamta government has taken this big step to reduce the powers of the governor.

Reducing the power of Governor

It is believed that this decision has been taken by the government for the purpose of reducing the powers of the Governor. The state government says that names are sent to the governor for the appointment of vice-chancellors in the university, but those names are not approved by the governor. Now soon a bill will be brought in the assembly and the law will be changed.
