Tenyimi Women Organization (TWO) has condemned the cancellation of Tenyidie examination, the only Naga language being taught at post graduate level under Nagaland University on February 22.
A press released issued by its president and general secretary Beinuo Besü and Vilanuo Yhome, questioned the vice chancellor’s prejudice on Tenyidie students by fixing another date for their examination and “easily excusing the serious academic damage”.
The women organization also termed the VC’s absence during examination as highly questionable and queried whether the firm hired for online examination by the VC was “incompetent” or populated with “ulterior motives”.
Taking this into account, TWO appealed the chief rector, government of Nagaland to probe into the case of “total neglect of Tenyidie students” and restore justice to the students by imposing stern action against the guilty.
The organization further demanded from the head of Tenyidie department to come out openly on the status and problem faced by the department for clear information of the Tenyimie people.
On the other hand, the TWO also expressed shock at the state of affairs of Tenyidie department which has been functioning with only one regular teacher and one contract teacher, adding that the previous selection of one Tenyidie teacher, Mimi Kevichüsa was denied.
TWO further questioned the VC as to why Tenyidie lecturers were not selected in the past years when there were many eligible candidates for Tenyidie, English and linguistics under Tenyidie department.
