Bagalakote: “If a university is established in Jamakhandi, Jamkhandi will develop academically. The postgraduate unit of Rani Channamma University is already functioning in Jamakhandi. It is not right to put on hold the establishment of the university due to some influential people. Therefore, the State Government should reorder the university declared for Bagalakote District,” said Senior Advocate M. G. Kerura.
He was speaking after submitting a memorandum to Tahasildar S. B. Ingale requesting him to set up a University at Jamakhandi at the local Tahasildar’s office on Wednesday November 16.
Meanwhile, another lawyer Vardhamana Kori said that Jamakhandi has been wronged during the construction of districts. Now that the Government has put it on hold after an order on setting up a world university has been put on hold, it would be an injustice to Jamakhandi City again. Jamkhandi was a state before 1947. Of the seven universities declared by the State, it can be set up here at the lowest cost. He said the Government needs to immediately pass an order in this regard.
