Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi today congratulated the faculty and students of the Rajiv Gandhi Institute for Petroleum Technology (RGIPT) and officials of the Petroleum Ministry on the operationalisation of the permanent campus of RGIPT.

"Glad to see our efforts in Amethi bearing fruit. Congratulations to the RGIPT family on the inauguration of the permanent campus!'' Mr Gandhi tweeted.

In a letter to Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Dharmendra Pradhan, Mr Gandhi said, "On the occasion of the RGIPT permanent campus becoming operational, I extend my heartiest congratulation and my best wishes to the students, faculty, officials of the Petroleum Ministry and oil PSUs. I would have certainly liked to have attended the inaugural function, had it been planned and scheduled on a mutually convenient date. I do look forward to visiting the new campus once classes commence.''

Mr Gandhi, however, pointed out that a number of other developmental initiatives that had either been legislated or had received cabinet approval have not progressed during the current NDA government.

"I am happy that the historical effort of ours is moving forward. I would, however, like to bring to your notice that a number of other developmental initiatives that had either been legislated or had received cabinet approval have not progressed during the current NDA government.

"These include Jagdishpur Paper Mill, Rajiv Gandhi National Aviation University, National Automatic Testing and R and D Infrastructure Project (NATRIP), Institute of Driving Training and Research and Kendriya Vidyalaya. I do hope that as a member of the council of ministers, you will urge your cabinet colleagues to expedite the completion of these important projects as well,'' Mr Gandhi said.UNI AR SW SNU 1877
