Give priority to road sector
The government of Arunachal decided to repair the road leading to Rajiv Gandhi University
(RGU) after Students’ Union (RGUSU) in a meeting with the other unions and associations
of the RGU decided to boycott the official admission procedure of the academic session
2017-18 to protest against pathetic road condition. The condition of road connecting
RGU is in pitiable state. Despite several appeal from RGU students union the concern
authorities failed to repair the said stretch of road. This kind of lackadaisical
attitude towards the problem affecting educational institute of the repute of RGU
is not a healthy sign.
Every year thousands of students take admission in RGU with the hope of better future.
It is the duty of state government to extend every possible support to educational
institutes like RGU. The government of Arunachal also needs to urgently repair the
Itanagar-Jote road. The said stretch of road connects educational institutes like
NIT, Govt Law College and upcoming film & television institute with state capital.
The NIT and law college is expected to start functioning from this coming academic
session onwards. But the condition of Itanagar-Jote road is in terrible condition.
The students will face miserable time due to poor condition of road. At NIT and film
institute students from across the India will take admission. Poor condition of road
will send out negative image of state to the outside world. State government should
give top priority to improving the condition of road connecting major educational
institutes of state.
