Last month, Delhi University Students’ Union president Ankiv Baisoya was surrounded with controversies regarding the authenticity of his educational qualifications. Ankiv Baisoya has been studying his master’s from Department of Buddhist Studies, Delhi University. The university from where he is claiming to have the graduation degree has denied with a statement that Ankiv was never enrolled with the varsity and its affiliated colleges.
Baisoya claims to have a BA Degree from Thiruvalluvar University in Vellore. But, on 3rd October, the registrar of Thiruvalluvar University sent a letter to Tamil Nadu’s principal secretary of higher education with a declaration that Baisoya was never associated with the university as a student.
Hence, Baisoya is not a graduate and pursuing a post-graduation level course from Delhi University using the false educational degree.
Delhi University’ take on this
Department of Buddhist Studies, Delhi University unexpectedly is taking the matter too lightly and there is no prompt action for investigating into the matter. The numbness of a reputed institution like Delhi University is shocking as a student with no undergrad degree is studying PG course at the varsity and they are least concerned about the same.
Head of Buddhist Studies KTS Sarao’s recently said that he had received the fake 12 candidature for the 231 seats at Department of Buddhist Studies and all the complaints will be investigated altogether. It was clearly visible from his diplomatic statement that he was trying to deviate the attention from Ankiv Baisoya’s fake degree.
Earlier on 24th September, there was such a complaint of the fake degree against a PhD student and the university filed an FIR against that students. Now the question arises that when it is proven that Ankiv’s degree was false, then why the university is treating him differently.
PhD student, against whom the FIT was lodged, was from the Congress’ student wing. On the other hand, Baisoya hails from Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad. DU’s different opinion and different treatment to both the students for the case is also seen as a result of the political impact. NSUI wants to leave no stone unturned in the proceeding against Baisoya. The NSUI students have sourced the declaration of Thiruvalluvar University that Ankiv’s mark sheet was forged.
DU’s cover for Baisoya
Delhi University is backing up Baisoya completely as a Google search concluded with a shocking finding that Baisoya was pursuing UG-level course from the economics department of Delhi University’s College of Vocational Studies during 2015-16. Earlier, he claimed that he was a student of Thiruvalluvar University in the same period. The case is turning out to be a mockery indeed.
