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.
