BENGALURU: The principals of 57 colleges affiliated to Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences approached the High Court seeking directions to the state government to retain the varsity’s campus at Jayanagar in the city as an additional campus even if it is shifted to Ramanagar. Justice A S Bopanna on Tuesday issued a notice to the state government, before adjourning the matter to March 21.
He also asked the government advocate to convey the concerns of the petitioners relating to their inconvenience to the government.
The new campus will be inaugurated on March 19. It may be noted that, a group of colleges had filed petition against shifting the varsity from the city and same is pending before the court.
Advocate Lakshmi Iyengar, representing the petitioners, argued that the city campus of the varsity can still be retained as an additional campus as per
Section 3(4) of the RGUHS Act.
