Demanding appointment of a new Vice Chancellor (VC) the The Bodoland Students Union (BSU) staged an indefinite strike at Bodoland University from Thursday in Kokrajhar.
The protesters alleged that that there has been no developmental work undertaken by Universty authority during the five years tenure of existing VC Dr Hemanta Barua.
The protesters also demanded the filling up of vacant posts for several professors.
The Bodoland University Vice Chancellor, Dr Hemanta Kumar Baruah himself has sought investigations into the allegations levelled against him.
The VC has dashed off a letter to the Chancellor of the University and Assam Governor Prof Jagdish Mukhi requesting him to make arrangement for a probe into the allegations of corruption and misrule in the university.
It may be mentioned that bringing charges of corruptions and misrule, an Assamese daily newspaper has published a series of news reports against the University VC, Baruah. After that, the VC of the Kokrajhar-based Bodoland University has submitted a letter to the State Governor seeking formation of a vigilance committee to probe into the allegations levelled against him.
