Chapra: Bihar Youth Congress president Lalan Kumar would head a committee to inquire into the No Objection Certificates issued to 45 colleges under JP University, Chapra, in Bihar.
An important meeting of the syndicate of the JP University was scheduled to take place yesterday, but the meeting was cancelled as the activists of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthy Parishad (ABVP) ransacked the office of University Vice Chancellor Ram Vinod Sinha and Registrar Tapswi Singh.
They broke furniture to press for their demands, including cancellation of the NOCs issued to 45 colleges by the university authorities, transfer of tainted principals, payment of salary of daily wage employees who were
not getting their salary for the past 30 , University sources said.
Kumar, who is also a syndicate member, soon reached the VC`s chamber and placated the ABVP workers.
Later, the Vice Chancellor announced that Kumar would be the convenor of a committee to inquire into the veracity of the NOCs issued to the 45 colleges and transfer of tainted principals would be dealt with, the sources said.
Kumar then prevailed upon the Vice Chancellor for payment to ad-hoc staff who had not received their dues for the past 30 years. The syndicate member asked the VC to ensure their payment for at least three months, 50 per cent from the university and 50 per cent from the colleges where they work, the sources said.
The Vice Chancellor agreed to the suggestions, they said.
Kumar suggested that the meeting of the syndicate be held on priority basis almost every month and tight security arrangements be made.
