NSU construction, administrators demanded


By Our Staff Reporter
IMPHAL, Oct 7: The National Sports University Construction Demand Committee (NSUCDC) Manipur has urged the Central Government and the State Government to appoint NSU’s Vice-Chancellor, Registrar, Finance Officer and Controller of Examinations and expedite building construction works.
Speaking to media persons at Manipur Press Club here today, NSUCDC vice-president A Rupaban remarked that the people of Manipur were delighted when the Government started NSU construction work after Koutruk and Senjam Khunou villages provided 325.90 acres for the university.
However, the university is still unable to evolve into a full fledged institution even though it was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi way back in 2014, Rupaban said.
Although three semesters of two courses have been completed in the temporary campus, there is no sign of appointing VC, Registrar and Finance Officer.
Notwithstanding Union YAS Minister Kiren Rijiju’s announcement that NSU Manipur’s VC would be appointed soon, the announcement is yet to be translated into action although the announcement was made over one month back, he decried.
As of now, construction of NSU is limited to ground levelling, construction of compound fences and drainage system by pieces.
Such lackadaisical attitude of the authority concerned towards the grand project has turned out to be a serious setback to all the villagers who donated 325.90 acres for the university, he said.
In the meantime, some officials have been working to acquire more lands on the pretext that the lands already reserved for the university is short of the required area, he said while appealing to all concerned to stop all their attempts to acquire more lands.
Even if the lands presently available are short of the req uired area, the same may be measured again together with the villagers after appointment of Vice Chancellor, he added.
