Chief Minister Trivendra Rawat said that NIT will remain in Srinagar only. It will not be shifted to Srinagar at any cost. NIT will soon become a permanent campus. After this, the proposal will also be brought in the cabinet after the code of conduct is terminated. On Thursday, the Chief Minister spoke on the issue to Union Human Resources Minister Prakash Javadekar on the issue. The Chief Minister said that about 122 acres of land has been explored near Sumadi for the permanent campus of NIT Srinagar. After the election code is over, the government will bring a proposal in the cabinet to transfer the land to NIT.
Regarding the shift of NIT from Srinagar to Rishikesh, the Director’s e-mail is becoming very viral on social media. In this e-mail sent to the students allegedly by the director, it has been said that the agreement has been agreed to shift the temporary campus of NIT to IDPL. However, the NIT officials are unaware of this letter and the IDPL management has said that there is no information. ‘Hindustan’ does not even confirm the authenticity of this letter.
The local people are very resentful about this letter. Mail Director Shyamlal Soni is said to be from the ID. It is a matter of concern that Sony is on leave since September due to unwell. Incharge Director Dr. RB Patel also unaware of the mail. Assistant Registrar Jagdeep Singh said that the mail was not even in their cognizance. If sent by the Director’s ID, then his PA will be able to tell. On the other hand, director of PA Manoj declined to be informed.
