AAPSU takes up the cause of RGU
ITANAGAR, Sept 21: All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) today submitted list of suggestions to M P Bezbaruah led fact finding committee which was constituted after last year’s mess in the Rajiv Gandhi University campus. Keeping in mind the prevailing uncertainty situation grappling the university campus, AAPSU has urged for immediate appointment of a new vice-chancellor, who is well versed in national values and ethos, has a caring and tender concern for the indigenous tribal people and the one who is devoid of caste and regional prejudices.
Highlighting the fact that Arunachal Pradesh is a 100% tribal state, union demanded that reservation of around 80% for the Arunachal Pradesh Scheduled Tribes is required in appointment to teaching and non-teaching posts for direct recruitment as well as for promotion and in admission to various courses of study in RGU.
AAPSU also pleaded for adequate representation of Arunachal Pradesh Scheduled Tribes (APST) in the bodies like Court, Executive council, Academic council, Selection Committee & any other important bodies of the University.
AAPSU has strongly urged upon the committee to treat its suggestions as exceptional and incorporated in the reports to the government of India for onwards consideration. Union believed these suggestions will ensure the balance and uniform growth of higher education and equal access to global standard of human resource development among the underprivileged and underdeveloped indigenous tribal people of Arunachal Pradesh.
