RGU issues order to temporarily suspend boundary wall construction

RONO HILLS, Mar 19: The Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU) authority on Monday ordered temporary suspension of the ongoing boundary wall construction in the university.
The order said that due to some disputes along the varsity’s boundary line, the construction has been withheld and the work would be resumed after it is solved.
According to the authorities, land disputes have cropped up in two places, one at the Women Technological Park and other behind RGU’s guest house.
A meeting was held on Monday at the VC’s chamber in this connection. Attending the meeting, All Arunachal Pradesh Students’ Union (AAPSU) vice president (Protocol) Dr Tayuk Sonam expressed satisfaction over the university administration’s decision to construct the wall as per the old map of the university.
“The old map which has signatories of about 12 people, including gaon burahs, landowners, university authority and deputy commissioner is the authentic one and the boundary demarcation should be made according to it”, Dr Sonam said, while assuring the AAPSU’s assistance wherever required.
Official records also say that in 1985, the actual area of the varsity was measured by the district administration, headed by the then deputy commissioner, and accordingly angle posts were laid on the basis of the map designed by the DA.
Authorities also said that the existing angle posts and fencing are the authentic proof of the university’s actual land demarcation.
The meeting was also attended by AAPSU, RGUSU and RGURSF members.
Earlier on Friday, the RGUSU and AAPSU had called for immediate suspension of wall erection alleging usurpation of university land.
