Wangcha Rajkumar Govt College at Charju
ITANAGAR, Aug 5: The College Development Committee and Land Donors appealed all not to be confused about permanent site of Wangcha Rajkumar Govt College as Charju (Khela) is the permanent site duly approved by the State Government. However, the college will continue to function from Deomali till all infrastructural facilities are created at its permanent site Charju (Khela), a press statement issued by the CDC and land donors said.
The college has been shifted from Charju to Deomali after three years of its establishment without the knowledge of elected leaders of Tirap as well as land donors and general public of the district for the reasons best known to those people who were involved in shifting of the college, the press statement mentioned.
The college has been deprived of funding during the last 12 years on the pretext of non-availability of its permanent site which is contradictory to the Govt Gazette notification declaring Charju as its permanent site. Adding insult to the injury, a girl hostel was constructed at Deomali instead of Charju out of the fund sanctioned last year which goes against the interest of government policy, the press statement claimed. They, however, appreciated contributions of legislators of the district in college development in the last five years and informed that Rs.50 lakh was sanctioned for construction of college infrastructure by DoTC in 2006 which is now completed.
It is pertaining to mention here that the villagers of Khela, Bunting and Lamsa donated 200 acres of land free of cost to the government for establishment of the college. As such, the PWD Khonsa division brought out blue print as per the UGC norms and huge amount of funds had already been spent for jungle clearance, construction of college approach road and administrative block upto its plinth level.
