Should a Vice-Chancellor be selected on the basis of Community, Birth

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Anna University, Chennai, has invited applications for the post of Vice-Chancellor. In the application form there are three columns which one feels should not have been there: these are viz., Place of Birth, Community, and Mother Tongue, of the applicant. Please educate me if these are in any way significant in selecting a V-C.

Also, would be great to raise awareness by sharing this post and debating the issue.
