Telangana Govt To Set New Universities

Hyderabad, June 12: The Telangana government plans to establish tribal and horticulture universities, cotton and silk hub, and pursue with the Railway Ministry to set up a coach factory in Kazipet.

As per the AP Reorganisation Act, a tribal university would be established at the earliest, Governor E S L Narasimhan said in his address to the maiden session of both Houses of Telangana state, which came into being on June 2.

"We are aware that there is demand from tribals of plain areas for sanctioning an ITDA (Integrated Tribal Development Agency) for them. We will examine this and take appropriate steps soon," Narasimhan said.

The government would like to establish a cotton and silk hub in Warangal and Sircilla on the lines of Tirupur in Tamil Nadu which would transform these towns into thriving textile industrial centres.

"An industrial corridor will be promoted between Hyderabad and Warangal to boost employment opportunities," he said.

We will pursue with the Railway ministry to set up a rail coach factory at Kazipet as mentioned in the 13th schedule of the state Reorganisation Act, he said. The government would set up a sugarcane research centre in Nizamabad and a turmeric research centre in Mothe, Nizamabad district.

A horticulture university would also be set up to strengthen the agriculture sector. The government is committed to provide compulsory and free education from KG to PG with CBSE syllabus in English medium to all needy students.

The Governor said as agricultural scientists have found the agro-climate of Telangana best suited for producing high-quality seeds, steps would be taken to encourage farmers to produce seeds of high quality so as to transform the state into 'Seed bowl of India'.

Keeping in view the spirit of democratic government, Narasimhan said the government would like to constitute a state advisory council, drawing its expertise from the civil society.

"Moreover, intellectuals, media representatives, voluntary organisations, social activists, various professionals and others will be a part of this State Advisory Council," the Governor added.
