PANAJI: Cumbarjua MLA Rajesh Faldesai demanded that the Goa government cease the harassment and injustice being meted out to a qualified professor of art Shivaji Shet, who he alleged was being ignored for the post of principal of Goa College of Art which has been vacant for the last two years.
Speaking during the demands for grants discussion, Faldessai alleged that despite the government having a qualified candidate in its ranks the department has been ignoring him.
“A suitable candidate from Cumbarjua who is completely qualified for the post is ignored. On two occasions the High Court has passed orders that he be considered for the post. But I don’t know why they kept the post vacant and pending for the past two years. This is a complete injustice to him and I urge the government to urgently appoint him to this post.
“Goa College of Art the principal’s post is vacant for two years,” Faldessai alleged.
