SHRI O.T. LEPCHA (CONTD): It is located in the lap of Mt. Kanchenjunga -- ß֮ ָ ֈә ֮֕ -- with verdant forest, valleys and majestic mountains. Sikkim is also called the Himalayan heaven and also the second Switzerland. Sikkim shares its borders with Bhutan, China and Nepal. It has recorded several significant gains in rural sector, power sector, ecology, welfare, woman's empowerment, education, health care, tourism, etc., after merging with India in 1975, as a constituent democratic 22nd State of India, from an independent kingdom ruled by the erstwhile Chogyal. It enjoys a special Constitutional status under article 371 (f) of the Indian Constitution and thereby retains various traditional and institutional practices. These achievements have been obtained under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Pawan Chamling who is a messiah for the poor and downtrodden and a true democrat leader. He is not only a multi-faceted man but also a poet par excellence and is an undisputed leader of the people. The hopes, aspirations and changes taking place in the lives of the people of Sikkim have come through his efforts, hard work, foresight and his true vision. His life is dedicated to the welfare of the people particularly to the poor and vulnerable sections of the society in the State of Sikkim.

SHRI O.T. LEPCHA: As regards today's discussion on the Sikkim University Bill, 2006, I am giving more stress on the socio-economic development of the State of Sikkim, as I belong to this State. Sir, in this respect, I appreciate the decision of the UPA Government for bringing this proposal before this august House for setting up the Sikkim University in the State of Sikkim for higher studies for younger generation of Sikkim. The Sikkim University being set up by the Government would provide all infrastructural facilities with limited State resources because the State Government has to maintain other educational institutions like colleges and schools in the State.

As a matter of fact, I would like to mention here that our Sikkim State is continuously progressing in every field and our Sikkim Democratic Front Government is determined to make Sikkim a hundred per cent literate and poverty-free State by 2015. Education is being given top priority and 17 per cent of the total budget is spent on education by the State Government. ֯ ָ֮ כ Ù ߓ 1:41 ׌ 1:17 ֟ ß֮ ֲ ֤ ֮ ֮ ֻ ׿ ׿ ׌ ״ֻ֟ ָ ֕ ß֮ ֮ ߻ ֕ פ Ϥ ׌ Ù Ù Ù Ù כօ

SHRI O.T. LEPCHA (contd.): Our State Government is laying a great stress on imparting quality education and providing education to all in Sikkim, and adequate opportunities have been created in many fields in both private and Government sector for the younger generation; they are not dependent on Government jobs. The Government should also prepare special employment schemes, tourism policy and industrial policy for speedy socio-economic development of the State of Sikkim. Unrest among the younger generation can be controlled in the State. The Government should take appropriate steps towards social, economic, political and cultural development in Sikkim. It is noted that growth, equity and self-reliance are the three broad objectives of the national economic policy. With these objectives, planning and schemes pertaining to the welfare and development of women, children, Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, Other Backward Classes, physically challenged people and old-aged persons and weaker sections of the societies in the State of Sikkim should be formulated and implemented by the Government of India.

Sir, I, being a representative of the Sikkim Democratic Front Government, in this august House, feel that the Government of India will take necessary steps to provide social-economic and cultural infrastructure which is required to create a suitable environment for economic growth in the State of Sikkim. We and our Sikkim Democratic Front Government are very grateful to the Government of India for providing every kind of possible support to the Sikkim State. It is a matter of great pride for me, for the people of Sikkim and for the Sikkim Government for visiting the Sikkim State by our Excellency President of India, hon. Prime Minister, hon. Chairman and Vice-President of India and other dignitaries, from time to time.

Sir, I would like to appeal to the hon. Members of this august House that this Bill should be passed unanimously in the national and public interest for the welfare and economic development of the Sikkim State. (Ends)

DR. BARUN MUKHERJEE (WEST BENGAL): Mr. Deputy Chairman, Sir, thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to speak on a very important aspect, i.e., the education of the country. It is indeed a very commendable work on the part of the Government that they are setting up three Central Universities at a time in three comparatively smaller States. We believe that this will go a long way to improve the educational and cultural standards of those smaller States. But, at the same time, I expect that the Government will not stop here after establishing these three universities. It should be ensured that each and every State must have a Central University. That will help the State Governments. Although education is a State subject, but still, the stepping in of the Central Government in this field will go a long way to help in improving the educational standards in the country. So, once again, I congratulate the hon. Minister for bringing forward these three Bills for establishment of three Central Universities. Obviously, I do support these three Bills. But, while supporting these three Bills, I find one thing, that the statutes, rules and regulations and all these things have been drafted in the same manner, in the same line for all the three universities. If we take up the case of one university, that will take care of the other two universities too.

Sir, first of all, I would like to draw the attention of the hon. Minister to the object of setting up a university. In the Rajiv Gandhi University Bill, it has been stated that one of the objects should be to educate and train manpower for the development of the State of Arunachal Pradesh. (Contd. by 3N-kls)

KLS/3N/5.20

DR. BARUN MUKHERJEE (CONTD): Simply, the other way, Tripura is given separately. I would like to request the hon. Minister to think whether it is proper to say that the objects of a Central University should only be to educate and train manpower for the development of a particular State. It is not proper to say like that for a Central University. Suppose, Viswa Bharti University in West Bengal at Shantiniketan, at Tagore's place, is confined and it is stated in the objects that Viswa Bharti University is only for the development of the students of West Bengal, that will be unfair for the students of other parts of the country. But it is better to say that 'special attention to the improvement of the social and economic conditions and welfare of the people of that State, their intellectual, academic and cultural development' -- this part is quite okay. It takes care of the intention of the Bill makers. But I will request you to delete the first part of the sentence 'to educate and train manpower for the development of the State of Arunachal Pradesh' or Tripura. It should not be specified in this line. In the subsequent line it has shown concern, a particular emphasis for a particular State, it will be all right to state. So, I would request the hon. Minister to think in that line to delete one part of this object.

Sir, special provisions have been made for women, physically handicapped, persons belonging to the weaker sections of the society and in particular the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes. But I think, as it has already been introduced in many of the universities of our country, whether it is better to mention about the reservation for the Scheduled Castes. Some percentage of students should be mentioned while admitting students that it is reserved for the Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribes or the weaker sections of the people. As I know, already in Kolkata in the Rabindra Bharti University, at the time of admission some percentages are being reserved for the SC/ST and other categories. So, it is better that it is taken care of. Its intention is quite good. It is very right from the beginning if it is mentioned that this, say, 5 per cent to, say, 30 per cent is reserved for the SC/ST or other weaker sections of the people; it will be a good impetus for the students of these communities.

We are concerned about some of the other aspects of the Bill. As my friend was just now telling about the maintaining democracy and transparency in the administration of the universities, we can go through it. And he specifically mentioned the Rajiv Gandhi University Bill and it states at page 12 in clause 36 about the conditions of service of employees. It appears that they propose to make appointment under a written contract. It is a contractual service. It is a concept, which is being introduced here. So, it appears to be a matter of concern. Generally, the employees are governed by the common rules as the service conditions are there. Whenever an employee enters any organisation, he is guided by service conditions. It may not be that there should be an individual contract service. It will be something like contractual service. So, it gives us concern for all these things. (Contd by 30)

-KLS/NBR-NB/3O/5.25.

DR. BARUN MUKHERJEE (CONTD.): I think it should not be there. It has also been mentioned about the termination and all that under the same clause. It says, 'the decision of the Tribunal shall be final and no suit shall lie in any civil court in respect of the matters decided by the Tribunal.' So, it is a restriction and employees' rights are proposed to restrict in this way. Generally, it is not being followed in other universities. So, for the sake of democratic approach to the whole administration, I think, it should be revised and the procedure that is being followed in other universities or other institutions has to be followed in this university as well. This, I believe, is a restriction on the rights of the employees. Generally, it is not there in other Bills of this nature. Sir, the employees' associations and students' union are well recognised, not to speak of universities alone, but in all other educational or research institutions or other institutions. I am afraid, whether this Bill intends to abolish these rights of the employees and the students. Now, Sir, a new concept -- Students Council -- has been introduced. We find this on page 30 of the Bill. On the one hand, there is no scope of forming students union, which is formed in all other educational institutions, beginning from the colleges to universities, throughout the country, by election, which takes care of all aspects of the students' welfare, etc. Here, there is no such scope. On the one hand the concept of Students' Council has been introduced on page 30 under clause 40. Moreover, we find that it is a nominated body. The Dean of the Students' Welfare will be the Chairman and the students who won prizes in the previous academic year, in the field of studies, fine arts, sports, etc., constitute the Committee. And, Sir, on the other twenty students are nominated by the Academic Council on the basis of merit in studies, sports activities, etc. The idea is accepted. The universal right of the students, so far been enjoyed by the students, right from the pre-Independence days and even after the Independence, through democratic process and are also having training during their academic period, is proposed to be restricted. They are also taking some sort of training during the academic period, so that they can adequately take part in future administration or leading the country. So, abolishing employees' association or the students' union, is not fair. I think it should be revised. The Students' Council cannot said to be a substitute. It cannot be so. It is absolutely a nominated body. It is also difficult to find out 20 students who are going to be nominated in that. So, that is also a matter of concern and should be revised accordingly.

Sir, there is another clause in the Bill which apparently seems to be good in spirit, but in practical sense it may create difficulty. I am referring to page 30, clause 43, of the Rajiv Gandhi University Bill. It is stated, 'no suit or legal proceedings shall lie against any officer or other employee of the university for anything done in good faith or intended to be done in pursuance of any of the provisions of the statute or the Ordinances.' This protection of action taken in good faith is a matter of interpretation. Somebody says that by any action if some injustice is done to him, but the officer says that he has done it in good faith.

(CONTD. BY USY "3P)

NBR-USY/3P/5.30

DR. BARUN MUKHERJEE (CONTD.): But the officer, who do it, says that he has done that in good faith. It is definitely a matter of concern. So, I think, these provisions should not be there in the Bill.

Then, while just raising some matters of concern, I congratulate the Government and the hon. Minister for bringing forward these three Bills and for taking the initiative for setting up these three universities.

I also hope that the hon. Minister would take care of the matters of concern, raised by me here, and revise the Bill accordingly. Thank you. (Ends)

SHRI SK. KHABIR UDDIN AHMED (WEST BENGAL): Sir, on behalf of my party, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and on my own behalf, I tender my support to the Bills.

I will keep my opinion limited to the Rajiv Gandhi University Bill. I would like to draw the attention of the House to the aims and objects of the Bill. It is said that the Government of Arunachal Pradesh, with its limited resources, is not in a position to provide adequate funding for development of the Rajiv Gandhi University. This is really a matter of concern. A State, like Arunachal Pradesh, having so many natural resources fails to provide adequate funds to run a university. I strongly feel that uneven distribution of wealth and uneven development of regions have resulted in paucity of funds for States to allot adequate funds even for education.

Sir, the other day, the Government had categorically stressed upon its commitment to spent 6 per cent of the GDP on education. I hope that the Government will keep its commitment. Arunachal Pradesh is a bordering State. We may agree or not, the people of the State, particularly the young generation feels frustrated and alienated. The UPA Government is committed for a rapid development of the North-Eastern Region. We can hope that there will be an all-round development of Arunachal Pradesh and new industries will be set up.

I would request the Ministry of HRD to evolve such a curriculum for the Rajiv Gandhi University that the youth, who come out of the university, find themselves fit for any job. I am happy to note that the Government has accepted almost all the recommendations of the Standing Committee. That's fine. Let us hope that the Rajiv Gandhi University will be a premier educational institution and will meet the basic educational needs of the young generation of Arunachal Pradesh.

With these words, I support the Bill. Thank you. (Ends)

SHRI DINESH TRIVEDI: Sir, I would take just half-a-minute. I would like to bring to the notice of the Government that as per the evening newspapers in Bengal that Ms. Mamta Banerjee is making a peaceful protest, but there is an apprehension that they may forcefully...(Interruptions)

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: No; no. No apprehensions. (Interruptions) It is not right. (Interruptions)

SHRI DINESH TRIVEDI: I would like to request the Government to ensure that no force is used. (Interruptions) Please ensure that no force is used on Ms. Mamta Banerjee. (Interruptions)

MR. DEPUTY CHAIRMAN: Okay; okay. Now, hon. Minister.
