AIZAWL, Sept 7 - As students� strike in Mizoram University demanding appointment of a regular Vice Chancellor entered the second day, State Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla today appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to appoint the VC quickly in the Central University.
The CM said he had already written to Modi on May 6, 2016 and the HRD Minister informed him that the process of VC selection was taken up afresh.
�It is now more than a year since then and I am given to understand that the file is currently lying with the present Union HRD Minister for a couple of months at his desk,� he said to the PM in a letter.
Since yesterday, the students were boycotting classes and preventing teachers and non-teaching staff from entering the campus, the Chief Minister said.
As it is the only Central University in the State, prolonged delay in the appointment of VC would jeopardise the future of many students, he said. Meanwhile, Mizoram University Student Council continued boycotting classes. The University had been without a regular VC for almost two years. � PTI
