In a dramatic development in the Nagaland University (NU), thirty five teachers including all Head of Departments (HoDs) of the three campuses, members of Academic Council and Executive Council, have tendered their resignation in protest against alleged autocratic functioning of the vice chancellor. CEC Nagaland University Teachers’ Association (NUTA) president Rosemary Dzuvichu and secretary N. Venuh in a letter addressed to the vice chancellor, Nagaland University, dated August 16, stated that the Association had passed a unanimous resolution to submit mass resignation of all teachers holding the post of HoD, deans and members of the Planning Board, University Court, Academic Council and the highest decision making body- the Executive Council. NUTA in the letter expressed strong protest against the “continuous irresponsible, arbitrary and autocratic functioning as Vice Chancellor of Nagaland University.” The mass resignation is based on ten “serious reasons” against the VC including total disrespect and defamation of the teaching fraternity of NU by the vice chancellor, arbitrary decisions and continuous violation of the Nagaland University Act, statutes, ordinances, rules and regulations, harassment and discrimination of University teachers including contract teachers and lady teachers, selective victimization and harassment of senior teachers and NUTA leaders, non compliance of the decision of the School Boards and stopping the Registration of scholars for PhD in the University. NUTA also charged the VC with disruption in research proceedings till date, irregular proposals sent to the UGC by the Vice Chancellor and officials, for opening new departments and centres, total negligence for proper development of Lumami, Medziphema and Kohima campuses till date, playing a divide and rule policy amongst the teaching community and society at large and a clear anti - people, anti ST and anti- Naga policy adopted by the Vice Chancellor in the University till date. Meanwhile NUTA sources said all academic programmes in three campuses continued undisturbed inspite of the resignations.
