Highlighting alleged malpractices conducted by Ningombam Shitaljit in becoming the principal in-charge of the Naorem Birahari College in Imphal, the Democratic Students’ Alliance of Manipur (DESAM) appealed to the state government to take up disciplinary action against him.
In this regards, the DESAM on Friday submitted a memorandum to the chief minister of Manipur. The memorandum alleged that certain malpractices committed by Shitaljit have been uncovered which deserve his termination from service as he entered service without even fulfilling the basic criteria.
It elaborated that he was appointed as temporary Physics lecture of the college in December 16, 1996 and as per his certificate, he completed his MSc in Physics in 1997.
“As a matter it raises a question as to how he had been appointed as a lecturer even before obtaining his master degree and also raises a red flag that he perhaps led the then governing body to believe that he is qualified to be appointed a lecturer,” it added.
The memorandum requested to immediately initiate disciplinary proceedings against Shitaljit on how he was appointed as lecturer without obtaining master’s degree and place him under suspension during the inquiry.
Meanwhile Shitaljit clarified to the media that he had not conduct any malpractice during his career.
Speaking to the media at his residence at Kwakeithel, Imphal, he explained that his appointment order was given by the then authority of the college, considering the urgent need of physics teacher during that period.
He also counter-charged against members of DESAM alleging that they call him at their office and manhandled him in front of the former principal of Naorem Biraharai College Akasini and its vice-principal Kunjabati on September 21.
