  • CUJ VC disrespected Jammu sentiments, failed to establish Dogri deptt: NSF

SRINAGAR: National Secular Forum (NSF) has flayed the administration of Central University of Jammu (CUJ) for crushing the Dogra sentiments by deliberately ignoring the introduction of PG programme and research work in Dogri despite completing seven years of its establishment.

Addressing a press conference, NSF state chief Dr Vikas Sharma blamed the incumbent Vice Chancellor Prof. Ashok Aima of downplaying the sentiments of Jammu people who fought hard for the establishment of Central University in Jammu.

“We got this University after a long struggle and had expectations that full-fledged Dogri department will be opened for the promotion of local literature and culture. Also, a chair after the name of some tall personality of Dogra land will also be established to promote research in the field of Dogri literature. But, things turned totally different as the CUJ administration has failed to fulfill the popular demand of Jammu people,” he said.

Blaming the incumbent Vice Chancellor for complete mess, Dr Sharma mentioned that Prof Ashok Aima was busy in maintaining liaison in power corridors at personal level and sacrificing the interests of the institution to accommodate the wishes of his political masters. “It seems that one political party has hijacked the institution and implementing its agenda through favorable appointments. The head of the institution is behaving like a tout to serve the interests of outsiders while ignoring the wishes of stakeholders and local populace,” he added.

The NSF chief alleged that under the tenure of incumbent Vice Chancellor several irregularities have been committed wherein some anti-Jammu people have been promoted and adjusted in this institution much to the like his godfather who was pushed out of this institution by the people of Jammu for his proven anti-Jammu stance. “It is been three and half years since he took over the reins of University but he has failed to make permanent appointment of top officials barring one, who is also his favorite. He is deliberately doing so to avoid appointing any person for Dogra community at higher levels,” he further alleged.        

He demanded that PG department in Dogri should be established within a month otherwise threatened to launch full throttle agitation to oust the incumbent Vice Chancellor who has disrespected the Dogra sentiments and degrading the institution through his misdeeds. He also urged the President of India and Union HRD Ministry to take cognizance of corruption and nepotism-favoritism in CUJ and order inquiry to unravel the wrong doings. 

Among those who were present in the press-conference included, Rishikesh Rana, Pushpinder Singh,Manmohan Singh  Ishtaq Naik, Sheetal Singh  and Ayan Malik.
