Jaiswal: Mayawati for central univ status to CSJM
"This initiative has been taken seeing the demand by the town`s educationists and intellectuals for establishing a Central University in Kanpur from time to time," the MP from Kanpur said in a statement.
Jaiswal has had a discussion on the issue with Sibal so that CSJM is recognized as a Central University in the 12th Five Year Plan, the statement said.
It claimed that Sibal has agreed to consider the demand.
Jaiswal also wrote a letter yesterday informing Mayawati about the discussion, it said, adding that he has asked the UP government to send a proposal to the HRD Ministry so that the process to grant CSJM recognition as a Central University be started.
Located on a campus of 265 acres, CSJM, earlier known as Kanpur University, provides 44 courses in 500 colleges of 15 districts and is a major educational hub in the state.
