President hits NEHU for lapses


SHILLONG, June 16: Assembly Speaker Metbah Lyngdoh on Thursday drew fans and admirers when he lashed out at the administration of North-Eastern Hill University for its failure to implement various programs and its disregard for the grievances highlighted by the student community.
Lyngdoh’s remark was met with applause from students and the public who had gathered for the 2022 farewell meeting organized by the NEHU Student Union (NEHUSU). The President was the guest of honor on this occasion.
Recalling that students had approached him with a host of issues, he urged Vice Chancellor Prabha Shankar Shukla to resolve the issues raised by students at the university.
The speaker urged the Vice Chancellor of NEHU to sign an agreement with a reputable company to provide free and quality tutoring to Scheduled Tribe students for the Civil Service Examination conducted by the Civil Service Commission of the United States. Union (UPSC).
“I urge the authorities to launch a special session for tribal students as the majority of NEHU students belong to ST communities,” he added.
He also called on the authorities to address issues related to the facilities of the homes and their absence.
Congratulating the graduates, he said, “The degrees you received will be like your insurance policy with a premium fully paid for through your hard work over the years.
“The value of this policy depends on how much effort you put into your education and what you do with it as you go through life,” Lyngdoh added.
