Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education Chairman K.

Speaking on the occasion, he said that Chief Minister Y.S.

He congratulated JNTU-GV-Vizianagaram Vice-Chancellor G.V.R. Prasada Raju for taking steps quickly for the construction of new blocks and establishment of new directorates which were required to regulate studies in all the affiliated engineering colleges.

Former MP Botcha Jhansi asked students to strive hard to learn new things to face tough competition in the job market.

Mr. Prasada Raju said the institution was able to get required funds and support for the improvement of the infrastructure to meet the national standards in engineering education.

University Registrar G. Swami Naidu and Principal K. Srikumar explained the progress of the institution which started its journey as an engineering college 10 years ago.

Directors of various sections including K. Babulu, R. Rajeswara Rao, D. Rajya Lakshmi, G. Jaya Suma, KCB Rao and Controller of Examinations V.S. Vakula and others were present. Earlier, the students enthralled the audience with music and dance programmes.
