The Hynñiewtrep Youth Council (HYC) has met with the Dean of the College of Post Graduate Studies in Agricultural Science to protest against the sacking of five security guards who were working on the campus.
The HYC met with the Dead, Prof JK Chauhan, today. The college is under the Central Agricultural University and is located in Umiam.
The security staff – Bettiful Lyngdoh, Iaishanlang Kharsahnoh, M Makdoh, Idalin Rani and R Makri – had reportedly been working at the institute for 10 years but were terminated from their jobs, according to Chauhan, because of the negative financial situation that the college finds itself in.
Chauhand had assured the HYC that when the financial health of the college improves it will rehire the five staff.
The HYC, however, rejected the college’s argument and demanded that they be reinstated immediately.
