Deputy Chief Minister M.K. Stalin will inaugurate two new buildings and lay foundation for five others at the Bharathiar University on August 2, Vice-Chancellor of the university C. Swaminathan said here on Friday.

Speaking to presspersons, he said the Department of Nanotechnology and International Students’ Hostel constructed at a cost of Rs. 5.5 crore would be inaugurated. The foundation for the two buildings was laid by Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi in February 2007.

Mr. Stalin would also lay the foundation for buildings including bio-technology and genetic engineering department, physics department, physical education department, second phase of indoor stadium, and IAS coaching centre.

“All the buildings will come up in 15 months at an outlay of Rs. 16.5 crore. Ministers K. Ponmudy and Pongalur N. Palanisamy will also be present,” the Vice-Chancellor said.

As many as 1,000 students drawn from the university and its affiliated colleges would take an organ donation pledge in the presence of the Deputy Chief Minister.
