VC syndicates have become arenas for corruption

And this syndicate was led by the VC himself. VC Dr. Md. After the appointment of Matiar Rahman Hawladar, there was stagnation in the administrative and academic fields in Sikribi. Allegations of corruption and misappropriation of funds in various sectors. The VC could not bring a single rupee for the development allocation during the four years of the tenure. But he gave up the allocation of 5 crore rupees in the name of feasibility study. There is no trace of that money. Corruption is going on in the construction of the auditorium.

Besides, a huge amount of money has been lost by buying AC laptops and cars without tender. The VC and his trusted two members know the information of these corruptions and loots. Among them, Abdul Quader Jilani and Professor Dr. Jamaat Panthi Finance Department Officer. AFM Saiful Islam. His wife Dr. Mochammat Najmanara Khanum. At one time he was nominated as the private secretary of the Prime Minister. Later, when the advertisement for that post was cancelled, it had its influence on the university administration.

The consultancy firm started the feasibility study for taking up the development project at around Tk 2500 crore. DPP has not been deposited even after four years. Only the VC can tell why Tk 5 crore was given to the consultancy firm leaving the work of DPP incomplete. That is why there is currently no development project in Sikribi.

Also the university has its own income. Among those incomes are money payable to provident fund of teaching staff, student security deposit, salary, examination fee and security deposit of various contractors. The VC bought a flat worth crores of rupees in Mahakhali in the name of Sikribir’s liaison office with the money allocated by the UGC and the university’s own income.

Meanwhile, Sikribir’s financial security is under threat due to illegal withdrawal of money from various sectors. Because of that, there is dissatisfaction among students, teachers and staff. Sikribir’s engineering branch is primarily engaged in service-oriented work. But as the money from this branch was used for the purchase of Lianjo offices, the administration buildings, various academic faculty buildings, residential buildings, residential halls are dilapidated due to lack of renovation.

Meanwhile, there are 16 finance department officials to look after the finances. Among them was the crown of the VC’s head. The lucky one is Finance Department. Abdul Quader Jilani.

On the other hand, there was no demand for the use of AC in the office rooms of the teachers or officials of the university. There was no AC pressure in the classroom. But suddenly AC laptop is bought in Sikribi. That is why old ACs are removed and new ACs are installed. But in a short time substandard AC and laptop become useless. VC provided AC and laptop to Sikrivi through his close relatives. No tender was invited for purchase of AC or laptop. In addition, the VC did not take any opinion or approval from the purchase committee at Sikribi where a car worth Tk 40 lakh was purchased.
Inquilab tried to contact VC loyalist Abdul Qadir Jilani to talk about his questionable performance in various sectors, including fund diversion and non-transparent process and unnecessary expenditure of money.
