Also, if wrongly appointed as senate member of the state’s largest university, he should be dismissed immediately.
Ahmedabad : Ellisbridge MLA Amit Shah has been appointed as Senate member of Gujarat University by the government. As per the UGC Act, the age of a senate member should not exceed 62 years, but despite Amit Shah’s age being 64 years, there are allegations that he was appointed on the basis of false evidence. In this matter, the NSUI leader has said that, according to the affidavit submitted in the 2022 assembly elections, his age is more than the UGC rule. The government has made the appointment based on false evidence. Furthermore, legal action should be taken against MLA Amit Shah, if he has produced false evidence before the Governor or has given false age in the election affidavit. Also, if wrongly appointed as senate member of the state’s largest university, he should be dismissed immediately.
Regarding this, NSUI leader said, UGC has a rule that those who are above 62 years of age cannot hold the post of Syndicate or Senate. Despite this, the arrogant BJP government MLA Amit Shah, who gave his affidavit for the 2022 assembly elections, showed his age as 63 years. Currently his age is 64 years. However, he has been illegally appointed as a member of the university senate. We have mailed a representation to the Governor on 12th in this matter. We have demanded to the Governor that if Ellisbridge MLA Amit Shah has been wrongly appointed, his appointment as a member of the Senate should be canceled and action should be taken. If no action is taken in the next day, we will stage a fierce agitation.
