CPI (M) warns HPU to stop saffronisation



    Shimla (Jan 21) CPI (M) State Unit, has warned the government to immediately stop the saffronisation of the Himachal Pradesh University and call back the newly appointed Controller of Examination (COE) to his eligible post.

    CPI-M member state secretary, Tikender Singh Panwar in a press statement issued here today said that government seems to have not learnt any lesson from the past failures and is determined to repeat them just to get its own ideologically moored men into the top posts, despite the fact that such people do not even have the essential qualifications.

    He stated that post of COE is a sensitive one with impeccable integrity to the institution and not to the ideology. Since recent past the COEs have faced the brunt of their ineptness and many a times the exams for different streams had to be re-fixed or redone. The case of CPMT is the classical one. Appointing a COE with strong ideological affinity would further worsen the situation, felt the CPI (M).

    Secondly the party has stated, the university is an autonomous body and the appointments must be done according to the statute and the ordinances that have been prepared and amended in due course of time. The HPU ordinance clause 27.5 categorically states the eligibility criteria for the post of COE.

    He alleged that while eligibly criteria states, “Masters Degree in any faculty with five years’ experience as a Principal in a college affiliated to or maintained by the University”, however the incumbent COE happens to be not even 5 months in office as Principal of Rajkiya Kanya Maha Vidyalaya , Shimla.

    Party further stated that the university belongs to its community that comprises of the teachers, employees and the students. All these three sections have most vehemently opposed the appointment of the present COE for the aforesaid reasons.

    Not just that all the elected bodies including that of the employees, teachers union and students are agitating and demanding the recall of the COE. The BJP must respect this sentiment of the university community and place the COE at his actual post.
