DERGAON, July 31 - Almost all the engineering colleges in Assam are running without proper infrastructure for which the students are suffering a lot. The National Board of Accreditation has derecognised several colleges for non-compliance of norms. This was observed by the general secretary of All Assam Students� Union (AASU), Lurin Jyoti Gogoi at a press meet in Golaghat on Tuesday.
The AASU leader also visited the Golaghat Engineering College on Tuesday and reviewed the latest situation of the institute.
After visiting the college, the secretary alleged that as most of the teachers have been recruited on contractual basis, and therefore, the Jorhat Engineering College has failed to get the approval from the National Board of Accreditation.
In this context, he informed that Assam Engineering College and Bineswar Brahma Engineering College of Kokrajhar are also facing a lot due to poor infrastructure.
�These two engineering colleges do not have latest equipment, nor any proper infrastructure, and as a result of which students are facing severe hardships while pursuing their studies,� Gogoi alleged.
The secretary urged the government to take immediate steps to get recognition of the Golaghat Engineering College as early as possible with proper infrastructure.
