 SHILLONG: Meghalaya Governor Ranjit Shekhar Mooshahary on Tuesday came down heavily on non-performing private universities in the State.

“The private universities which are set up in the state has failed to deliver and function to the level of satisfaction leaving the future of young students in jeopardy”, Mooshahary said at the inauguration of the Interim campus of the University of Technology and Management at Bijni Complex, Laitumkhrah here on Tuesday.

Out of the 5 universities set up in the state in the year 2005, the governor said only the Martin Luther Christian University (MLCU) has been performing its duties and functioning to the level of satisfaction.

Noting that commercialization of education is important in today’s generation; he, however observed that establishment of educational institutions at the cost of making business is indeed the greatest sin.

He also urged the corporate entities to come up in establishing educational institutions of repute.

Urban Affairs Minister also local MLA, Ampareen Lyngdoh said some private universities stood short of delivery.

“Therefore this university (University of Technology and Management) must deliver for the interest of people of the state”, she added.

Later, speaking to reporters after the gathering, UTM vice chancellor Dr SJ Chopra allayed apprehensions that UTM has not been recognized by UGC. “We will ensure that within the duration of the first batch students, we will get UGC recognition,” Chopra added
