Cooperative University Bill passed

GUWAHATI, July 17 – The Assam Assembly today passed the Rajiv Gandhi University of Cooperative Management Bill, 2010 by voice vote after AGP member Dr Alaka Sarma refused to amend her amendment to the Bill.

Moving an amendment, Dr Sarma said that the University should be named after former Chief Minister Sarat Chandra Sinha who was the pioneer of cooperative movement in the state.

Dr Sarma said that the people of Assam should learn to give due respect to the sons of the soil. She pointed out that there are hundreds of colleges and universities all over the country in name of Rajiv Gandhi. She also said that there are stadiums, central schemes and even airports all over the country in names of members of a particular family and there is no reason for naming the new university in the name of Rajiv Gandhi.

In reply, Minister, Cooperation, Bharat Chandra Narah said that the Government would set up a university in the name of Sarat Chandra Sinha. However, he admitted that the Government is yet to decide what university it would be. He also informed the House that the proposed Agriculture College in Dhubri would be named after the former Chief Minister and a Kalakshetra is being set up in Chapar in memory of Sarat Chandra Sinha.

However, Dr Sarma refused to withdraw her amendment, which was defeated by voice vote.

Rajiv Gandhi university Vice-Chancellor resigns

The vice-chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi University in Itanagar Prof K C Belliappa has resigned after a fact finding committee found of guilty of sending a lewd email to a senior faculty member of the varsity. Belliappa has sent his resignation to President Pratibha Patil on December 31, which has been accepted by Patil, the Visitor of the Central varsity with immediate effect, official sources said in Itanagar on Saturday.

The fact-finding committee constituted by the Union HRD ministry to probe the charges levelled against Belliappa had found evidence that he had actually sent an email with lewd and objectionable content to a senior faculty member, the sources said.

The fact-finding exercise was conducted by a single-member committee of former bureaucrat M P Bezbaruah to probe allegations of misconduct against Belliappa. Bezbaruah had submitted his report to the Union Human Resource Ministry in early December.

The associate professor had filed an FIR against Belliappa in Itanagar on April 3 last year, in which she also alleged that someone had hacked her email account and sent objectionable messages to Belliappa and 20 others.

Belliappa had earlier said he had received an email from the woman professor and had replied to it.
Belliapa was arrested by the Special Investigating Team of the state police following an FIR lodged by the associate professor accusing him of sending objectionable email that reportedly purports to internet crime
