Sikkim Tourism Minister and senior SDF leader Ugen T Gyatso Bhutia made a scathing attack on the Sikkim University authorities for giving only marginal admission to the Sikkimese students and accused its top officials of indulging in campus politics.
“The university is not taking our local students. If our students are not getting a chance to study in the university then what’s the use of it?” he asked.
Addressing the SDF Students’ Front coordination meeting for east district at Tadong, he also said: “We have brought the university for our students, not to get humiliated and we should not let the university to be place for politics. The university should not try to oppress us by giving us just 10-15 per cent quota like beggars. First, our students must get admission and then, they can think of other things,” insisted Bhutia.
