Let there be a local Vice Chancellor for SKUAST too
The matter of appointment of Central University Jammu has already created heat in Jammu. There are chances of an uproar in Kashmir if Government will take any step regarding appointment of non-local as Vice Chancellor of Sher-I-Kashmir Agricultural Science and Technology Kashmir. That move can simply add fuel to the fire.
It seems that the Governor Vohra has to give final nod to the appointment of non-local as the VC of SKUST-K. But before taking any decision he must realise the gravity of the situation. From the last 20 years we have seen that the appointment of non-locals as VCs of the varsity have proved negative. These Vice Chancellors during their tenure have ignored the meritorious candidates of the State and appointed candidates from outside the state as Assistant and Associate Professors, which has resulted in frustration of youth.
Recently people of Jammu have made representation to the State and Central Governments for appointment of local as VC, Central University of Jammu. Both the State and Central Governments have accepted their demand. On the one hand government is trying to address the aspirations of the people of one region and on the hand government the aspirations of Kashmiris are being turned down. We request Mr. Vohra not to follow his predecessor Mr. Sinha.
