State govt grants plan to set up international level Buddhist University

By Our Correspondent

Agartala, Feb. 5 ,2020 : An international level Buddhist University would be established at Sabroom subdivision's Manu Bankul area by the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC). The state government has already given Letter of Intent (LoC) to IBC for setting up the Buddhist University to cater the need of the students of some South East Asian nations- Myanmar, Thailand, Comodia, Lous and Srilanka.

While revealing the development to the media, Education Minster Ratan Lal Nath today said a Buddist delegation met Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb in his office in December. "The Chief Minister has welcomed the wish of setting up a Buddhist University at Manu Bankul. Once the plan gains pace, the government will bring a bill in the Assembly mandating IBC to go ahead with the plan", he said.

Nath said IBC plans to invest Rs. 100 crore to set up the proposed University where Buddhist ideology, philosophy and values would be preached. Besides, almost all subjects of modern era would also be offered in the Varsity.

He further said some private University authorities have approached the state government expressing wish to set up Varsity in the state but they were not allowed by the government. "The new government is serious about granting any proposal of establishing University. We want quality education with placement scope instead of offering degree to the students. Placement cells have been established in almost all degree colleges", he added.
