CM promises Narmada water to North Gujarat Sunday, June 24, 2001

AsianAge
Ahmedabad June 23: North Gujarat would get Narmada water in next two and half years, according to chief minister Keshubhai Patel. Mr Patel was laying the foundation stone for rehabilitation of Jakhotra village in the Sabarkantha district.

The RSS-inspired `seva-bharti’ has adopted the village for rehabilitation and has budgeted almost Rs 4 crore for the project. The chief minister, while addressing the gathering, said that the government alone would not be able the to carry out such a massive rehabilitation work without the help of society.

The society and non-governmental organisations are actively participating in the rehabilitation work and `Jakhotra’ is an example of it, he added.

He said, “We do not boast that the government can do everything but have adopted the way of taking every one together.”

He said that while other rehabilitation projects for earthquake such as Italy, Japan, Latur and Chamoli are still not complete, the government in Gujarat has announced 19 packages for rehabilitation so far, he added.

The chief minister said that his government has been criticised from all corners but he is only concentrating his efforts for the better future of the state. “There would be no compromise with the construction of buildings in quake-prone areas considering for the safety of our future generation.” The CM explained that the state government has taken loans for rehabilitation from the World Bank and Asian Development Bank.

Ahmedabad, June 22
All backlog of reserved categories seats, which are lying vacant in various state government departments will be filled up shortly, said the chairman of the cabinet sub-committee and the social justice minister Fakir Vaghela on Friday.

He was addressing various departments of the Sachivalaya. He said that out of the 15,889 seats lying vacant in the reserved categories, 2,565 seats had been filled up leaving some 13,324 seats still vacant.

Mr Vaghela said that none of the usual excuses of non-availability of candidates and any other form of negativity would be tolerated by higher officials in filling up the seats.He said that even grants would be stopped to those grant-in-aid institutes, which did not follow the reservation quota and they could even have a cut in their grants if they did not follow the reservation standards in their institutions.

Mr Vaghela also said that even when appointing some one on ad hoc basis or on daily wages, all institutions should follow the reservation quotas as set up by the government. For the physically challenged, Mr Vaghela said that he has asked the director of the social welfare department to prepare a list of unemployed people so that they could follow the list to fill up the quota of the physically challenged people.

If any person from the open category was employed in place of a reserved category candidate and if the general candidate could not be removed from the job, then the organisation would have to create the same number of vacancies on a supernumeric basis, said Mr Vaghela.

HC STAY ON V-C’S POWERS Saturday, June 23, 2001

Asian Age
Ahmedabad, June 22
The high court on Friday granted a stay order, restraining the Gujarat University vice-chancellor to exercise the powers of the executive council solely, and from granting affiliation to any of the institutions proposed in the current academic year. The hearing of the case is scheduled for July 11.

High court justice P.K. Sarkar passed this stay order on the writ petition filed by a member of the executive council. Gujarat University’s executive council member Narhari Amin had filed a writ petition in the high court in which he has raised an important point regarding delegation of powers by the members of the executive council in favor of members of the vice chancellor, and in turn, on receiving such powers, the vice chancellor cannot act solely as executive council and take any decision on behalf of the executive council.

During the last meeting of the executive council of Gujarat University held on June 18, the council members had passed a resolution giving powers to the acting vice-chancellor of the Gujarat University Chaitanya Khambholja to decide the granting of affiliation to new colleges in commerce, Bachelor of Business Administration and Bachelor of Computer Application and to grant permission to various applicants of institutions to open the colleges.

The powers vested to the members of the executive council were given solely to the acting vice-chancellor. Executive council member Narhari Amin had criticised the resolution during the meeting and had strongly protested against giving the complete authority to the vice-chancellor to decide upon the opening of 21 self-financed colleges in the current academic session.

The writ petition stated that the powers, vested under Section 33 of the act to grant affiliation, are with the members of the executive council, and such powers cannot be delegated to the vice-chancellor since there is no provision in the act for such delegation. He had said that due to the act, all the members should decide on each application for affiliation grant in the executive council meeting.

Arguing for the petitioner in the court advocate Mohair Joshi said that the powers and duties of the vice-chancellor are stated in section 11 of the Act which does not include power to grant affiliation. He further argued that the powers to grant affiliation are under section 33.
