Ranchi: The state’s proposal to set up a Sanskrit University was complied with by the Centre today. The University is planned to be established in the Deoghar district of Jharkhand.

An official release said that the approval aroused during a successful meeting held in New Delhi between Chief Minister Raghubar Das and Union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani.

Raghubar Das, an Indian politician belonging to the Bharatiya Janata Party who has served as the member of the legislative assembly for five times, was sworn in as the 6th chief minister of Jharkhand state in December 2014.

The release further said that the Ministry also assured to help improve the education level in the state. The meeting also witnessed Neera Yadav, the Jharkhand education minister, present there.

Formerly a part of Bihar, Jharkhand is the 28th state of India since the year 2000. Apart from being a hub of industrial activities; the state boasts itself of being an education destination too, attracting students from across the country to get admissions in their programs from a plethora of disciplines.

However, Jharkhand has an inadequate educational infrastructure with the increase in population aggravating the situation. It has been noted that the Government has been unable to provide books since 2001 in this ‘Naxalite-Maoist’ hit state. (Inputs from Agencies)
