SHILLONG: Chief Secretary WMS Pariat on Tuesday offered to accommodate the students of CMJ University in other educational institutions in the State provided the data containing information of students, lost during the office vandalism, is retrieved.
Pariat made this offer on Tuesday when the students of CMJ University accompanied by members of the Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) met him to discuss issues pertaining to the fate of the students of the University.
“The Chief Secretary assured us that the issue would be taken up with the Education department and since officials of the CMJ University are in the custody of the police, it will not take time for them to retrieve the data,” KSU educational secretary Donald Thabah told reporters after the meeting.
During the vandalism at the University’s office in the city and the destruction of computers, important data of the students have been lost due to which the government is incapable of accommodating the students in other universities.
It may be mentioned that the records and data were destroyed by a data entry operator of the University, Kamlesh Kumar Chowrasia, who had acted at the behest of the CMJ Director, Manjeet Kaur.
“We are not concerned about the management and mismanagement of the University but the government should find a solution to ensure that the academic future of the students are not hampered and disrupted,” Thabah said.
The KSU has also demanded full reimbursement of tuition fees of the struggling students of CMJ University.
