Vice chancellor, Nagaland University, Prof. K. Kannan has appealed to the head of departments, deans and members of the Academic Council and Executive Council to resume their duties and responsibility with immediate effect. The vice chancellor in a letter “Entreat to discharge duties and assignments,” said the State expected a lot from the leaders of academic community and that they would not fail the expectation. In regard to the mass resignation tendered by 35 University teachers including head of departments, deans and members of the Academic Council and Executive Council on August 18, Kannan said resignation letters should be addressed individually to the appointing authority and not through unions or associations. He also said the university cannot deliver its objectives to the students and the society unless each and every employee, teaching or non-teaching, discharged his or her duties and assigned responsibilities. He further reminded the teachers that as employees of the university, they were accountable to the people, for whom Nagaland University was established, “As already stated without individually addressed letters to the concerned controlling authority, no letter of resignations has validity and hence no action cane be taken on such communication. While on duty you are required to act within the discipline and conduct rules and also discharge your duties assigned to you,” the letter stated. It may be mentioned the Central Executive Council, Nagaland University Teachers’ Association (NUTA), in a letter dated August 18, addressed to the vice chancellor, stated that the association had passed a unanimous resolution to submit mass resignation. NUTA in the letter expressed strong protest against the “continuous irresponsible, arbitrary and autocratic functioning as vice chancellor of Nagaland University.”
