Chauhan was elected 29th Governor of Bihar in July 2019.

Many universities were involved in multiple scams during his tenure as Governor of Bihar, and ex-officio Chancellor at State Universities. These scams were exposed by raids of the Special Vigilance Unit of Bihar Government. Magadh University’s was the most unusual, as Vice-Chancellor Rajendra Prasad was arrested under Section 420 IPC for Rs30 crore fraud. His home was raided, which was the first time that a VC of University had been done so. Chauhan, the University’s Chancellor, didn’t fire the VC. Chauhan hails from UP too. This led to speculations.

The VC was on medical leave, leaving the post de facto vacant. He stated that the University was not well-equipped for vigilance raids because it created fear. Other University staff were also brought in and charged an additional fee, including the Exam Controller, VC, and other members of staff. Magadh University experienced the longest academic delays in recent years due to multiple exams pending. These issues prompted multiple protests, in which the Governor’s effigies were set on fire. This is not a new phenomenon as the Governor is an honorable constitutional position. These students protested against Governor Chauhan’s inability to conduct exams and delayed sessions. They demanded the resignation of Chauhan and his staff.
