Teachers body demand VC's resignation
Kohima, Feb 22 (UNI) Central executive council of Nagaland University Teachers Association (NUTA) has demanded the resignation of Vice-Chancellor G D Sharma within a week.
In an ultimatum served by NUTA president Akali Sema and general secretary N Savino, the VC was held responsible for disapprearance of assets worth Rs 20 crore in Nagaland Univesity (NU).
They alleged that despite the approval of Rs 68.70 crore for setting up an engineering college, it was yet to be set up even though Prof Sharma had drawn Rs 5 crore in 2004-05 from the Union Human Resource Development Ministry.
They also charged the VC with having drawn Rs 2 crore from the Rs 17.50 crore approved by the Union government for a management institute in the state.
The association also alleged that there had been a total administrative failure to redress grievances of the employees.
It also maintained that the university authorities had failed to take appropriate action against unqualified teachers appointed by Prof. Sharma in different departments.
The NUTA warned it would take its own course of action if the VC did not step down.
