Dehradun: Teachers of Garhwal University
today asked the Uttarakhand government to set up a university
in the state capital for giving affiliation to colleges and
institutes in the wake of central status to Hemwati Nandan
Bahuguna Garhwal University.
In a memorandum submitted to Chief Minister Ramesh
Pokhariyal Nishank, the teachers said since Garhwal University
has already been accorded the central status, such colleges
need a new varsity for affiliation which should be set up in
the state capital.
