Khunti: Khunti district administration on Wednesday claimed that all but one villager has agreed to part with their land, a day after Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda announced to make Khunti a knowledge city spread over about 800 acres.

"Only one woman does not want to give her land. We don't need her land as we have identified the required land," the Khunti Deputy Commissioner, Rakesh Kumar said.

He was replying to a query whether a section of villagers had objected to part with their land when Munda announced yesterday about the government's plan to set up medical, engineering, law and other institutions to make Khunti a knowledge city.
