Khunti (Jharkhand): Jharkhand Chief Minister Arjun Munda on Tuesday said the BJP-led government has decided to make Khunti a knowledge city spread across 800 acres of land.

"500 acre of land has been identified and officials have been asked to look for the rest as the government has plans to set up medical, engineering and law institutes so that we can give students higher education here itself," Munda told reporters here.

Stating that the government has asked a consultancy agency to give a blue-print on the plans, Munda said, "All these years Khunti is known as 'karma bhumi' (place of workers) and now we want to make it 'gyan bhumi' (city of knowledge).

Later, he addressed a public meeting where he promised that the government was committed to providing higher education in Khunti.
