Nepotism 1: University employees promoted for 3 hours!

Eight employees of Gujarat university, who were in the good books of the vice-chancellor, were promoted yesterday afternoon but had to be back in their junior postings after three hours.

The eight 'favourite' employees were awarded promotions by the controversial V-C, Parimal Trivedi, against whom university staff have levelled 34 charges of corruption and nepotism.

However, in an instant reaction, 50 senior staffers who were being denied promotions for years on end went on a flash strike and sat on indefinite fast outside the V-C's office.

Finding himself at the receiving end, Trivedi cancelled the promotion orders and told the eight employees that they would have to wait till the high court gave its verdict in a related case.
