And Head of Department of Entrepreneurship Studies for 'giving wrong information'

MADURAI: The Madurai Kamaraj University will initiate legal action against the Head of Department of Entrepreneurship Studies and Member Secretary of Centre for Entrepreneurship Development (CED) Tamil Nadu, R. Jayaraman, for "misleading the public by posting wrong information on a web site."

Talking to reporters here on Wednesday, PR. Athappan, Dean-Industrial Consultancy, said the university had taken a serious view of Dr. Jayaraman claiming himself to be the Coordinator of School of Business Studies on the CED (Tamil Nadu) website.

"He ceases to be in that post since the university had already appointed U. Surya Rao in his place last year and any wrong information using the name of MKU could attract legal action", Dr. Athappan said.

He said that Dr. Surya Rao who took over as Coordinator on July 1 last year and is the coordinator of School of Business Studies.

According to him, the website, www.cedtn.org, contained an information and a photograph showing Dr. Jayaraman in a post he is not holding presently "and due to the misleading information, legal action is being taken".

Responding to a query about the sharp criticism from the CED advocate, V. Gopalsamy, about the university, Dr. Athappan said all the allegations against the university were "false".
