State minister of higher and technical education (H&TE), Temjen Imna Along, has assured to disperse scholarship on time and ensure that students’ scholarship was not misappropriated by anyone.

Along was speaking as the special guest at a thanksgiving programme for Mewar University, organised by students under Eastern Naga Students Union Dimapur (ENSUD), Education Initiative Programme 2014 batch, at DBIDL Hall, Don Bosco campus, here Monday. 

Recalling the incident that took place in Uttar Pradesh in 2015, wherein 150 Naga students were thrown out of their respective colleges for not receiving scholarship from government of Nagaland, Along assured that such situation would not happen again. The minister, on behalf of the government and people of Nagaland, also apologised to those 150 students. 

On the occasion, Along also affirmed to eradicate backdoor appointment in his department, saying that reserved seats would be allotted to the deserving candidates.

Breaking silence on the issue of polytechnic institute in Longleng district, Along clarified that the issue was not of politics but of the location. He maintained that an institute has to be in an accessible location, where scholars can travel from their respective homes, and not in the middle of a forest or an island. He said that the same case was with the Wokha Polytechnic institute at Pangti village.

Along acknowledged the Mewar University for minimizing 50% of tuition fees for Nagas and also giving chance to 71 students out of the 150 students who were thrown out of their university in 2015. He also thanked the Mewar university chairman, Dr. Ashok Kumar Gadiya, and his colleagues for the good Samaritan work.

Also, speaking at the programme, Dr. Ashok Kumar acknowledged the ENSUD Education Initiative Programme 2014 batch for honouring the University and organizing a thanksgiving programme. He stated that it was the university’s aim to help and provide the best educational guidance to Nagas. Former president of ENSUD, Honiko Luklem and secretary, parents fraternity, Er. Caleb Kent also delivered short speeches at the programme. 

Earlier, the programme was chaired by Er. Jula Kajiri and invocation was given by chairman, parent’s fraternity, Rev. Dr. T Lima ozukum. A special number was presented by Wongcham T and welcome address delivered by Er. T Thomas Konyak.
