LUCKNOW: Just two days ahead of its annual convocation, Lucknow University finds itself caught in a row over two prestigious medals to be awarded at the function. Students have alleged that the administration has already decided recipients of the Chancellor's medal and Dr Chakraverti. Written complaints to the governor and VC. Confirming this, LU spokesperson NK Pandey said, "An eight-member committee has been instituted to look into the issue. That said, the official list to the announcement of medals is yet to be declared."

Prakhar Kant, who topped Masters in Business Economics, has complained that he was unable to attend the January 13 interview because he was informed only the preceding night. Being in Delhi, on a new job, Prakhar said he only received a phone call instead of the usual letter, and alleged that the medal has already been 'fixed'.

Prakhar has sent a written complaint to the chancellor, VC and Union minister Rajnath Singh, who is to be the chief guest at the January 19 convocation.

Accusing the university of similar fixing in the case of Dr Chakraverti medal, the students met Governor Ram Naik on Friday who sought the university's response.
