Objecting to the All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU)’s demand for setting up of enquiry commission to probe into the fund utilisation under AICTE-NEQIP scheme at Kheloshe Polytechnic Atoizu (KPA), the Chakhesang Students’ Union (CSU) has said that the demand was “devoid of merit and rationality” as the scheme implemented from 2014-2017 was duly audited by Accountant General of Nagaland and found satisfactory.

In a representation addressed to the state chief secretary, CSU president Vetho Vadeo and general secretary Avezo Kevin Kapu said that the same scheme was implemented by two institutes in the state. CSU alleged that ANCSU has selectively chosen to target KPA with an ulterior motive. 
CSU also alleged ANSCU’s demand was with “vested interest to cover up the ongoing controversy of a junior officer given the officiating charge of HOD in technical education”.
The union stated that every norm and procedure of the Government Service Rules was flouted in handing/taking over the charge of HoD, technical education to Er. Lhoungu, OSD on the afternoon of August 31, 2020 on post retirement of Er Arjun Singh as the director. 
It stated that Er Vipulhou was occupying a non sanction post of OSD and was placed in the third place in the seniority list of officers published by the department of technical education. 
CSU said that Er. Razou Vizo, additional director, was the senior most officer in the department. It said he was suffering from brain tumour since 2003 and had undergone rigorous medical treatment. As such, CSU said he was not able to discharge his duties for the last 15-16 years. 
However, CSU said Er. Mhaseto Nakro, principal KPA, was second in the list of seniority list of officers followed by Er. Lhoungu. CSU alleged that the state government, however, handed over the officiating charge HOD to Er. Vipulhou Lhoungu “much against the existing seniority lists of officers”, which it described as “unethical and illegitimate.”
CSU alleged that technical education department has “scant regard for issuing officiating promotions based on principles of seniority for which there is rampant discrimination, corruption, manipulation, nepotism and favouritism”. 
Affirming that it would not remain a silent spectator, CSU has urged the state chief secretary to issue necessary directive to the department “to correct the anomaly and restore the rule of law.”
