New RGU VC takes charge

RONO HILLS, Oct 4: After a wait of nine months, Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU) has got a fulltime vice-chancellor (VC) in Prof Saket Kushwaha, who took charge on Thursday.
The university’s students’ union (RGUSU), employees’ association, research scholars’ association, and teachers’ association, along with administrative officers and staff gave a rousing welcome to the new VC at the RGU’s administrative block gate.
During a brief interaction, Prof Kushwaha gave assurance that the next five years would be “fruitful,” and that no teacher or student would suffer during his tenure.
“Students and teachers are complementary to each other, with equal roles to play for the growth of the university,” he said.
Speaking to the RGUSU’s representatives, the VC assured that an email ID would be dedicated to them to have their grievances redressed, and that he would personally supervise it.
“Justice will be delivered in any case. I will never jump over your genuine points if you are able to address it to me with positive justifications,” Prof Kushwaha told the students.
Welcoming the VC, the RGUSU said “We have huge expectation from the new VC, and we will be extending full cooperation, so that the campus flourishes.”
The VC’s chair had remained vacant for nine months following the retirement of former VC Prof Tamo Mibang, and the RGUSU had spearheaded a movement demanding a regular VC.
