On the occasion of the 149th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, West Bengal’s Honourable Chief Minister Smt. Mamata Banerjee laid the foundation stone of an university. To honour ‘Father of the Nation’ on his birth anniversary, the university’s foundation stone was named after him in Purba Medinipur district.
The university will help many students in the region to pursue higher education. The Trinamool Government has been working hard for the upliftment of people in that district. The plots where the universities will come up have already identified and necessary steps will be taken to develop the infrastructure of the area.
