Tenyimi Peoples’ Organization (TPO) has appealed Vice Chancellor, Nagaland University (NU) K. Kannan to revoke the suspension order against three of its members Prof. Dr. Glean Thomas Thong, Dr. N. Venuh and Rosemary Dzuvichu for the general benefit of the students and smooth functioning of the university.
Expressing dismay over the alleged repeated ‘discrimination and harassment’ meted out to Tenyimi community members by NU authority, TPO stated that suspension of its members proved the ‘tyranny of the university authority’, who were ‘all out against the Tenyimi community’
TPO in a press release issued by its President Z.M. Sekhose, and general secretary Benjamin Lorin alleged that in the past, one of its community member who served in Tenyidie department was unceremoniously terminated after several years of service to the university. It further stated that NU authority even resorted to appointing a non- Tenyimi who did not had any knowledge of Tenyidie in Tenyidie department of the university. It alleged that Vice Chancellor reportedly went to extent of terming Tenyimi as “ruckus” in his report to Chief Rector of NU and Governor of Nagaland in response to National Women Commission directive.
TPO also expressed concern over the status of various investigation and enquiry conducted in connection with the various imbroglios in NU as there was no outcome so far.
It also stated that ruling NPF party had reportedly conducted an inquiry into various allegations and published its finding report as well. However, TPO stated it wondered as to what steps the state government had taken into various finding report submitted by NPF inquiry committee.
