The All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) on Friday assured the students of Golaghat Engineering College (GEC) that the institution would soon get approval of the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE).
The students’ body assured the first batch of engineering students that no stones will be left unturned for carrying out the steps required for getting the mandatory AICTE approval for the technical institution.
Reports quoted AASU general secretary Manuara Hussain as saying that a seven-member team of the students’ organization had on Wednesday met Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, education minister Siddhartha Bhattacharya and agriculture minister Atul Bora.
They held a discussion on getting AICTE approval for GEC.
During the discussion, AASU requested the state government to take steps for solving the problems due to which GEC is yet to get approval from the national council for technical education.
AASU had on Sunday last sent a memorandum to the chief minister stating that the students’ body would start protests if it does not take steps in fulfilling their demands.
GEC admitted the first batch of engineering students in August last year.
The college provides four-year engineering degree course in three branches – mechanical engineering, civil engineering and chemical engineering.
