Concerted efforts needed to give Rajiv Gandhi University pan India character: Arunachal Pradesh Governor
Arunachal Pradesh Governor B D Mishra emphasises need for joint efforts to give RGU a pan India character at RGU 20th convocation ceremony.
ITANAGAR: Arunachal Pradesh Governor B D Mishra (Retd) on Wednesday stressed the need for concerted effort by students and faculty to give Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU), a pan India character.
Addressing the 20th convocation of the Central university at Doimukh, near here, the governor while emphasising for ensuring academic excellence, said that the pan India character will facilitate the university in having accomplished teachers, knowledge park, personality growth of students and examples of good leadership. Mishra underscored that peace, order and discipline in the educational campus are more important.
All issues can be resolved by dialogue and lawlessness, breakage and damage of properties and agitations should not be resorted to on the premise he said. "As a central university, RGU must have proper academic calendar and its must be implemented in letter and spirit. Cent per cent classes must be run by teachers and attended by students," he said.
The governor advised the degree recipients to abide by the Constitution of India and perform their fundamental duties as enshrined in the constitution. The governor asked the students to work hard and realize their social responsibility and advised them to work for the welfare of the people in whatever way and whenever required. He stressed that the passing out students must not run after government jobs but start off some 'start ups' and become job providers.
"Pay back to society," he said, adding that no work is small or below dignity as long as it does not break the social or legal norms. Allahabad University, economics department, Girish Chandra Tripathi, delivered the convocation address. RGU, vice-chancellor, Saket Kushwaha briefed about the achievements and new initiatives of the varsity.
A total of 6,352 students graduated in the academic session 2021-22 and were conferred degrees during the convocation which include, 62 PhDs, 56 MPhil, 947 post-graduation and 5,405 undergraduate degrees.
