"In this condition, the things will remain with us are heritage building, furniture.and the students who took admission with a dream of getting quality education in this seat of learning", he said.

"In some departments only two teachers are working in place of 20 to 30 teachers. The university is depending on the grants from government while the institution should become self dependent", he said.
