Prof Nageswara Rao, while thanking Governor E S L Narasimhan, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and HRD Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao for pinning high hopes on him, told reporters that he would fulfil their aspirations in developing the varsity to stand in the world map with the help of teaching and non-teaching staff. He informed that first priority would be quality teaching and research work and to protect the image of the nine decade-old varsity with commitment and hard work.
“Those studying in the university must feel that they have learnt good knowledge when once they leave the campus. An academic action plan will also be chalked out to train Telugu medium students by imparting English language skills as the university has all basic infrastructure facilities, which should be utilised properly,” he observed.
