Now, what is more worrying is the way certain government agencies are letting down the college.
The Societies Registration Department seems to play a lead role in this nasty business of legalizing the illegal. What they have been doing can be quickly summed up in three stages as follows:
i) When the Madurai District Registrar’s office was approached for certain documents relating to the college they said they had sent them to the Inspector General’s Office in Chennai to help the ongoing inquiry into the disputes regarding the Governing Council of the American College and would give the documents after the inquiry was over.
ii) While maintaining that the inquiry was not yet over they also stunned our friends by giving in writing that no document relating to the American College Governing Council was available either with the District Registrar’s Office, Madurai or the IG’s Office, Chennai.
iii) As NO DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE with the Registration department of the government they say they are going to get copies from the Society / Governing Council [apparently the one convened by Dr. Davamani Christober] and RECONSTRUCT the files on the American College!!!
It’s dizzying to see the ease and impunity with which people say such strange things in response to queries under RTI and still pretend that everything is all right, or, even if something is wrong no one is responsible for it.
Besides the repeated petitions from our friends to the authorities of the Registration department, our advocate has also sent a notice [dt. November 27, 2014] to both the District Registrar, Madurai and the IG, Chennai stating: “Missing of records related to an 131 year old reputed educational institution in Tamilnadu from the office of the District Registrar and IG, Registration is shocking and unacceptable—that too when the society is under cloud”. The notice also asks the authorities to keep in abeyance the Form-7 presented by Dr. Christober alongside the proposed “reconstruction” of the American College files till issues relating to the governing council are settled legally.
Prof. Suriya Kumar and Dr. Rajendra Pandian attended the ‘Governing Council’ meeting convened by Dr. Christober on December 20, 2014 and reportedly raised several issues starting with that regarding its legality.
Dr. Anbudurai’s writ petition before the Madras High Court [with a prayer to direct the IG, Registration to finalize his report on the management dispute of the American college] was disposed of on Jan 20, 2015 without expected relief. However, the order acknowledges that our representation [dt. October 10, 2013] made to the IG, Registration is still pending and we are at liberty to approach the authority [once again] in this regard.
Despite Dr. Davamani Christober’s delaying tactics and court manipulation, the cases filed against the Principal and his Council are expected to gather pace.
We learn that yesterday Dr. Christober left for the US on an official trip.
He, who literally broke into this office with the help of rowdy elements led by his father-in-law [Late Bishop Asir]; unleashed unprecedented violence on the protestors and their properties on campus; did and is still doing serious tamperings, manipulations and other illegal things in order to distort truth and make the retrieval of the college impossible, believes after all that he has the legitimacy to represent The American College!!
