The Nagaland Government Registered Class 1 Contractors’ Union (NGRC-1CU) has issued an “explanation call” to the Registrar, Nagaland University accusing him of taking “dictatorial and autocratic” decisions in allotting supply and contract works under Nagaland University and for exploiting and inflicting undue harassments to local entrepreneurs, contractors, teachers and students belonging to the Scheduled Tribe and backward class communities of Nagaland. The Contractors has requested him to reply on or before October 10 failing which it shall proceed to file “legal action” against him. NGRC-1CU president, K.C. Angami, general secretary, L. Pukhato Shohe and its legal adviser, Advocate, Kezhokhoto Savi in the “explanation call” said that the following issues were brought to its office: (a) as per complaints, the contractors said that the registrar has been “verbally” asking contractors to negotiate with him demanding payments of high percentage commission before awarding supply and contract works allotted under NU. It was also alleged that he has been making random allotment and award of works to contractors, suppliers without observing any proper codal procedure. Seeking information under the RTI, the contractors demanded to know all the information on monetary transactions of both supply and contract works awarded by the registrar and the vice-chancellor after he (registrar) took over the office. (b) The NGRC-1CU said it was also brought to their notice that the registrar has terminated the tender for the work at NU Kohima campus floated on May 4, 2009 by which he had unnecessarily “harassed local bidders” who were its members. It asked the registrar to clarify the arbitrary termination of the tender alleging, “you have grossly overruled and have taken dictatorial and autocratic decision which is arbitrary and not maintainable in the court of law.” He was also asked to explain why the allotment and award of works were kept pending for months even after the approval and recommendations of the ‘Building Committee’. The contractors further wanted to know as to what was the function of the ‘Building Committee’. (c) The registrar was also accused of adopting “double standard” negotiation tactic with innocent Naga citizens, teachers, students, businessman etc. The NGRC-1CU alleged that the NU official has also been lavishly using abusive and demeaning words against the Naga people and placed on record his frequent use of the term, “I have not come here to work for the welfare of the Naga people.” The NGRC-1CU told the registrar that it was keeping close track on his lobbying with firms and agencies. (d) The NGRC-1CU urged the registrar to honour his call of empanelment of contractors, suppliers and architects and sought a copy of the final list on or before October 10.
