IU running without Pro-VC, treasurer

The administrative, economic and academic activities of Islamic University in Kushtia are being hampered badly as the two posts of pro-vice-chancellor and treasurer have been vacant for 14 months and 8 months respectively, reports UNB.
University sources said the tenure of former treasurer Professor M Selim Toha came to an end on August 20 last while the tenure of pro-vice-chancellor Professor M Shahinoor Rahman expired on February 23 this year.
Since then, the two important posts of the university remain vacant.
According to IU Engineering Office, the university is currently working on an upward expansion of ten-storey male and female residential halls. Ten contractors are working simultaneously to implement the works.
Treasurer of the university is the head of the vigilant team and also the head of the tender evaluation committee of the university.
Due to the absence of treasurer, IU vice-chancellor Professor Shaikh Abdus Salam is working as the head of these team-committees. Various functions of finance and account sections are also in standstill situation.
IU acting chief engineer Munshi Shahid Uddin M Tarek said that the treasurer of the university is the head of all financial and development activities. Without him, no work really happens on time. The university vice-chancellor is recommending various works including approval of various bills in his executive power that really stress matters for him.
The vacancies in the posts of Pro-VC and treasurer have created a vacuum in the administration and hampered the flow of the university’s regular financial and administrative activities as well, Islamic University Teachers Association president Kazi Akhtar Hossain said.
In order to restore normalcy in the university’s administrative and economic activities, the government should appoint a pro-vice-chancellor and treasurer of the university soon.
He also called upon the ministry concerned to take appropriate steps to give the appointments to the posts.
A number of senior teachers, who are the aspirants of the positions, are lobbying with government high-ups for getting appointment as pro-vice-chancellor and treasurer of the university.
