Patna, April 20, 2017: Former Patna University vice chancellor Dr LN Ram said students and teachers are the two important aspects of university rather than infrastructure.
Professor Srivastava was addressing the centenary year celebration function of the Patna University at Wheeler Senate Hall on Thursday.
He said for the past several years Patna University has been struggling with the shortage of teachers and moreover 60 to 70 teachers are set to retire this year. "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.
Another former vice chancellor Dr Sudipto Adhikari said the Patna University has a glorious history and we should work together to make it move forward.
Earlier, Patna University acting vice chancellor Dr Sudhir Kumar Srivastava inaugurated the function.
Students of Magadh Mahila College and Women's Training College presented an attractive cultural programme.
