PATIALA, March 16: Just two days after vice-chancellor Jaspal Singh put in his papers, the Democratic Teachers Front of Punjabi University here has demanded an inquiry into his functioning, alleging that he led the university to bankruptcy during his nine-year tenure.

In a letter to Capt Amarinder Singh on Thursday, the day he took oath as the 26th chief minister of Punjab, university teachers claimed that Jaspal’s term witnessed major financial, administrative and academic irregularities pertaining to the recruitment, construction, purchases of construction material, computer equipment, instruments, out-sourced work, publication bureau, promotions, papers and stationery and use of university cars.
