Baharagora College has got a new professor-in-charge to carry out the duties of a principal, the eighth in seven years.
The college’s head of the political science department S.P. Singh agreed to take charge of the college, where principals have come and gone, all victims of constant interference by local goons who try and control the admission process for the BEd course the institution introduced in 2006. The appointment was notified by Kolhan University on Tuesday evening.
Singh replaces D.R. Kuiri, who was appointed professor-in-charge in early August, but resigned barely 21 days later.
“Singh has been there in the college for the last five years. He is aware of the local culture and has willingly accepted the position. Since the college needs a head to ensure its development, we now have that,” said K.C. Dey, registrar, Kolhan University.
Dey, along with a four-member team, inspected the college on September 10 to discuss the problems with the staff in order to find a permanent solution. Of the seven professors-in-charge so far, two retired, four resigned and one was murdered in 2009.
Meanwhile, Kolhan University has analysed the BEd admission pattern in the college for the year 2011-12. University officials said out of 100 seats, 82 were found to be genuine cases, while two students appeared to have secured admission with fake certificates. The status of the remaining 16 students will be studied, and if everything is found in order, then they would be allowed to appear for the exams that begin on October 3.
