Early Times Report

Jammu, Oct 28: The non-teaching as well as ministerial staff of Baba Ghulam Shah Bhadshah University (BGSBU) Rajouri today gave farewell to the outgoing Vice Chancellor by openly boycotting the last get-together organized by the University, following the superannuation of the varsity head.
The staff was angry over the five years tenure of Vice Chancellor, who had allegedly failed to address all the issues of the staff members and allegedly didn’t allow the staff to meet them.
According to sources, a message was circulated by Registrar of the University among the university staff members on Tuesday evening about a scheduled get together. The message reads, “Members of BGSBU fraternity including teaching and non-teaching staff are invited for a get together tomorrow at 11:30 AM in the MSC. IT Conference Hall. Honble Vice Chancellor will grace the occasion. Registrar, BGSBU.”
However following the message, the non teaching employees and Non Teaching Association started discussing the invitation and suggestions were put forward to boycott the function. One message on whattsapp group which explains the intensity of dissatisfaction among the staff towards the VC, which reads, “.....As you are well aware of the death of Marhom Parvez Malik due to pandemic, not even a single officer, Deans and VC, who was sitting in his chamber and is also father of the University attended the condolence of Mehroom Parvez. Only Registrar attended the condolence that too at 3 PM as a compulsion. Moreover nothing done for Marhoom Riaz GDH family also so far. It was their duty to give justice to the aggrieved family. Nothing done so far and the wife always approaching the authority. As usual authority sitting over the files and issues of such cases also.”
After long discussions the employees reached a conclusion to boycott the official function organized by the University for outgoing Vice Chancellor. According to eyewitnesses, apart from non-teaching and ministerial staff, even teaching faculty members also didn’t attend the function.
As there was thin attendance at the scheduled time at the venue, the function could not start at 11:30 AM and the organizers had to wait for more time. It was also reported that some of the scholars of some professors were invited to attend the function to show some gathering at the venue, where maintaining social distancing turned to be a boon for the organizers to escape further humiliation following open boycott by non-teaching.
President of Non Teaching Association of BGSBU, Mohammad Mehnaz said that in the last five years of VC’s tenure, not even a single employee was promoted. “Not even a single non-teaching vacancy was filled in last five years and when the non-teaching staff was seeking appointment to meet VC for redressal of their issues, the office was reluctant to grant time. Moreover few days back our colleague had died and we organized a condolence meeting but VC didn’t turn up there”, Mehnaz said, adding that even employees were not allowed for career advancement schemes, despite availability of options while as SRO-43 cases were also not taken up by University in last five years.
Mehnaz further said that apart from a formal communication about get-together, the message was circulated on Whatsapp groups on Tuesday evening and following discussions within the Association, it was decided to boycott the function. Pertinently, the VC’s tenure has already expired on October 27 and a panel has already been forwarded to LG’s office for appointment of new VC of BGSBU.
