A state university has made a strange claim about Bihar Governor Fagu Chauhan. Patna’s Patliputra University has declared the 71-year-old legislator as the richest politician in Mau district in Uttar Pradesh, even richer than Mukhtar Ansari.
Significantly, the state Governor is the Chancellor of the state universities. In such a situation, the name of the Governor along with a short introduction as Chancellor is mentioned on the site of every university.
The description of Chancellor-cum-Governor Fagu Chauhan on the Patliputra website reads as –
“H.E. FAGU CHAUHAN is a Governor of Bihar and Indian Politician and a Member of 17th Legislative Assembly ,Uttar Pradesh of india .He is the only MLA from ghosi who won maximum number of times (six times ).He represents the Ghosi (Assembly Constituency )in Mau District of uttar Pradesh .He has many Business Profession such as Transformer Factory and cold stories . He is also the richest politician in Mau District evan richer than Mukhtar Ansari .”
In such a situation, the question arises as to how far it is right to write such things in the introduction of a person in respectful positions like Governor or Chancellor in which the wealth of a politician is compared to him.
