Visakhapatnam: Andhra University would celebrate its second Alumni Day on October 12, the day Cyclone Hudhud battered Visakhapatnam city.

HRD minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao chaired a review meeting with Andhra University officials alongside GMR Group chairman and AU Alumni chairman  Grandhi Mallikarjuna Rao, at the varsity here on Sunday regarding the varsity’s upcoming Alumni Day.

 

Andhra University Vice-Chancellor Prof. G. Nageswara Rao informed that they discussed various issues relating to the cultural programmes, alumni meet, guest list and reception and hospitality of the guests and alumni to make the event more successful than last time.

“We would invite all the old students and famous personalities hailing from AU. We are going to invite renowned personalities from all across the State,” said Prof. Rao.

AU Rector Prof. E.A.  Narayana, Registrar Prof. Umamaheswara Rao and others were present.

 

Meanwhile, the contract professors of Andhra University and other varsities of the state, who are concerned over their future with the proposed ‘common recruitment test’, met HRD minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao on Sunday on the sidelines of Alumni Day review meet.

They requested him to recruit for the vacant posts only after regularising them. They explained how they were serving various universities in the state over the last two decades and how the test could pose a threat to their livelihood.

Mr. Rao assured them that he would take the issue to the notice of the CM and would try to do justice to them. Contract professors from ANU, Ambedkar University and others met the minister.
