Guwahati to get world class university

By Nitsi

Guwahati, Oct 7: The Ministry of Human Resource Development(MHRD) has fulfilled the demand of All Assam Students' Union (AASU), including Guwahati as one of the 14 world-class universities to be set up across the country.

Earlier the students' body had expressed strong resentment when there was no inclusion for Guwahati during a MHRD meeting on Sep 28.

"The Prime Minister had assured that one of the 14 universities would be set up in Guwahati but surprisingly the same did not materialize during the MHRD meeting. We opposed the discriminatory attitude and finally after putting a lot of pressure on the Centre, Guwahati was allotted the university," said Dr Samujjal Bhattacharya adviser of the students' body.

The AASU has further urged the state government to initiate necessary steps to facilitate the process.
