“A lot of engagements have been done and as it stands now, we have changed some of the ACs, some of the chairs have been procured and a number of them have come in and so we are now working on the broken tables. We have to get to a point in time that when we are opening the reading room, it is opened for good. We don’t have to open the reading room and then [for a period of time] we will have to inconvenience students to work on the reading room and all that. Although there’s delay, this is what I came to meet and I am making sure together with the leadership of the JCR to ensure that all these [issues] are [resolved].”
