BJP wants a local qualified preferably female VC for NEHU


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Legislators have sought the intervention of the governor into the issue related to the appointment of the new vice-chancellor in the North-Eastern Hill University (NEHU).
Stating that preferably a local female qualified candidate could be considered for the post of Vice-Chancellor of Nehu, Hek said, “We have requested the governor to take up with the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). We prefer that the Centre should appoint a qualified candidate from the state and if possible a female candidate as the new VC of NEHU.”

The demand for a local qualified professor from NEHU should be given a chance to lead the University and the ouster of NEHU’s Vice-Chancellor SK Srivastava has cropped up anew, this time by Meghalaya Confederation of Academic Welfare (MCAW). There were several protests made demanding the removal of the present VC.
