No grudge with college, clears Unmukt Chand

But it looks like the Vice Chancellor of Delhi University, Dinesh Singh could have solved the problem with ease if he had taken into account the letter addressed to him by Unmukt Chand 4 months ago.

This came into light as one of the leading English News Channel NDTV, as it also suggested that the controversy could have been avoided if they had taken appropriate steps earlier.

Unmukt Chand also revealed that he was told to meet the Vice Chancellor regarding the same but couldn't reach the person.

He said, "I got the letter and then our Principal recommended me to go to the Vice Chancellor. The letter then went to the VC's office but kept on circulating here and there."

Further, after spending 4-5 hours to hand over the letter to the Vice Chancellor, the letter was back at the College as none of them at the office responded nor came forward to take the responsibility which frustrated Unmukt.

"I could not meet the Vice Chancellor that day. No one wanted to take up their responsibility. Everybody asked me to go to the Dean, student counsellor and so on. I had to keep running here and there."

After constant pressure from media and letters from HRD minister Kapil Sibal, sports minister Ajay Maken's initiative to promote the U-19 winning captain, Delhi University had not taken any measure regarding the same.

Now, after promoting the 19 year old to II BA classes, Delhi University Vice Chancellor, Dinesh Singh said it would bhave been great if Unmukt had approached him earlier, and the entire controversy could have been avoided.

He said, "I wish he had come to me earlier. I can't be held responsible for something i don't know about."

Though the comments were contradicting, atleast the issue has been solved for the time being as Unmukt Chand is pleased with the outcome after academics row.
