Union reiterates demands

ITANAGAR, Dec 30: The All Arunachal Tourism Students’ Union on Monday reiterated the demand it had made in July, urging the chief minister to “upgrade the tourism course” at Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU).
In a press release, the union said while master’s and bachelor’s degrees are “requisite degrees in the field of tourism, the university does not have the courses.” RGU currently offers only a diploma course in tourism.
The union reiterated its demand for creation of posts of district tourism officers and tourism information officers.
It also urged the authority concerned to “regularize all the RMSA tourism teachers and create new tourism teachers’ job for the secondary and higher secondary schools.”
The union also reiterated its demand for “education schemes and loan for unemployed tourism students,” and urged the state government to “strictly maintain the central government guidelines in executing the infrastructure development works in the tourism department.”
