Hetauda, June 16

Province 3 Chief Minister Dormani Poudel today said that there should not be any kind of misunderstanding or disputes between Tribhuvan University and Agriculture and Forestry University in Chitwan.

Speaking at an interaction organised on the occasion of the eighth anniversary of Agriculture and Forestry University in Hetauda today, CM Poudel said that there would not be any kind of dispute between these two varsities in future. There was dispute between the universities after Tribhuvan University handed over the land under its ownership to Agriculture and Forestry University.

“Though the infrastructure of the university is in dilapidated condition, it has not been renovated or reconstructed as the budget freezes every year due to dispute, but it will not be repeated in the days ahead. Now the university will be under the provincial government,” said CM Poudel.

Speaker Sanu Kumar Shrestha urged the stakeholders to avoid disputes and provide quality education. “The province government is committed to ending all kinds of disputes and producing skilled human resources,” said Shrestha.

Minister of Industry, Tourism and Forest Arun Nepal argued that the country had failed to achieve anything substantial in the field of agriculture despite being an agricultural country. He stressed the need to modernise agriculture sector for the development and prosperity of the country.

Minister of Agriculture, Land Management and Cooperative Dawa Dorje Lama underscored the need for proper cooperation between farmers, university graduates and ministries for the development of agriculture sector as the university alone could not do anything significant.

The programme was chaired by the university’s vice-chancellor Ishwor Prasad Dhakal.

Member of the House of the Representatives Krishna Prasad Dahal, provincial lawmakers Prem Bahadur Pulami and Juneli Shrestha and District Coordination Committee Makawanpur Chief Raghunath Khulal, among others, were also present at the programme.
