Reacting on the reports alluding to a conspiracy hatched by the Pro Vice Chancellor, Brigadier S Ahmad Ali and Proctor, Professor M Mohsin Khan to eliminate him with the specific purpose of becoming the Vice-Chancellor, General Shah said that nothing could be more outlandish or ridiculous.
"I have full faith and trust in my team comprising the Pro Vice Chancellor, Proctor, Registrar, Dean Students' Welfare and Finance Officer. They have served the University with total loyalty. They are not aligned with any group," said General Shah adding that if they had done anything like that, he would never have hesitated in removing them from his team.
He further said that the accusation is preposterous and a work of fiction designed to create confusion and damage the image of Aligarh Muslim University.
"I have never felt threatened from any members of my team, with particular reference to the Pro-Vice-Chancellor or Proctor," further said the Vice Chancellor.
"Zorez's reference to me on this account is false and fabricated. All allegations levelled by him are false, fabricated and malicious just to save him from persecution of his misconduct as captured by the cameras in the Proctor's Office," stated General Shah.
He has also stated that the allegations against the Pro Vice Chancellor, the Proctor, the Deputy Proctor and others should be dismissed with the contempt it deserves.
