The apex tribal organisation in the state, Naga Hoho has urged that the appointment of the new Vice Chancellor for Nagaland University should be made without any bias and political interventions.
Naga Hoho, in a representation submitted to the Governor P B Acharya yesterday regretted that even after 22 years of its existence, Nagaland University was unable to attain its height at par with other progressive Central Universities.
What else is making news?
For the past 10-15 years, the Nagaland University was burdened with issues of financial misappropriation by the institutional heads resulting in series of agitation and removal of VC and officials of the University on corruption charges, the Hoho said while also expressing deep concern that inspite of huge potential, the University is yet to have a strong academic foundation and environment to build up.
It also highlighted that for the past few years NU has been surrendering yearly plan for the development of university in spite of underdevelopment of the university.
The Hoho also pointed out that the current trend of heavy employment from other states particularly from Manipur and Assam in NU points to obvious sidelining of the hundreds of local qualified unemployed youth in the state. The Hoho therefore, maintained that in order to build a good University one of the most important factors is the Vice Chancellor, who can make or unmake a University being the head.
