DHUBRI, June 1: The governing body (GB) of Dhubri Law College is planning to convert the college from public property to private property by way of registering it under Societies Registration Act. This apart, numerous anomalies have been taking place in Dhubri Law College.

Attacking the governing body of the college, guardians and intellectuals lodged complaints before the Dhubri Deputy Commissioner and Registrar of Societies Registration, Government of Assam, demanding that as the college was affiliated to Gauhati University and the State Government had issued concurrence to this college, no one could convert it to private property.

Dhubri Law College should be run according to rules and provisions of the State Education Gepartment but the governing body and the Vice-Principal of the college, who also holds portfolios of joint secretary (Fince), academic and administrative head and convenor of different sub-committees, have been violating the rules of Gauhati University and UGC, the complaints alleged.

As per allegations, the governing body had been constituted without holding guardians’ meeting and Vice-Principal Dipankar Sarkar whimsically took fincial decisions jointly with the secretary against whom the Gauhati High Court had taken discipliry proceeding and imposed a pelty of compulsory retirement from service when he was SDJM (S) in lbari.

The complaints further alleged that qualification for the post of Vice-Principal of a law college, as per UGC rules, is LL.M with above 55 per cent marks along with PhD in Law but Vice- Principal Sarkar only had BA.LLB degree.

Guardians and intellectuals have urged the State Government to take necessary action in this regard.
