The lawmaker argued that students of the institution decried the irregular payments of dues to the school without issuing receipts.

He recalled that despite being a unionist during his school days, he had never been directed to collect money from students on behalf of institution management.

The House constituted an eight-member committee to investigate and submit a report within two weeks.
