Hostel inmates come to the rescue of Acting V-C
Meanwhile, in response to the news published on Apr.18 in a section of the press, few hostel inmates have termed the allegations as baseless and added that the Acting V-C had visited the hostel based only on their request.
They said that the University collected Rs. 5,000 towards HRA but failed to provide basic facilities which led them to file a complaint with the Acting V-C and insisted him to visit the hostel to see the plight of the students.
