Patiala, July 30

Retired IAS officer Manjit Singh Narang, who was recently appointed honorary adviser to the Vice-Chancellor (VC) of Punjabi University, Patiala, resigned on Thursday. Blaming VC Dr BS Ghuman for the same, Narang said he was appointed by the VC on July 1, but never got a call to join the office.

Narang, who is credited with pulling the PRTC out of financial slump, said the VC had been dilly-dallying on his joining.

Narang said the university had failed to utilise the benefits of his services, which he agreed to provide free of cost. He said he felt helpless and thus hung his boots. “On July 24, I was asked to return when I was going to join the university. It seems the university had appointed me out of some obligation,” he said.

When contacted, Rahul Bhandari, Secretary, Higher Education, said: “I don’t know the reason behind his resignation. I have received Manjit Singh Narang’s letter. Only the VC can tell about it.”
