Tribune News Service

Dharamsala, October 10
The Chief Minister, Mr P.K. Dhumal, today said a Rs 20-crore project had been sent to the Centre for its approval to make Paprola Ayurvedic College a centre of excellence.

Mr Dhumal was speaking at a public meeting at Sakri village in the Baijnath Assembly constituency after laying the foundation stone of a library building to be built at a cost of Rs 1.18 at the crore college. It was the endeavour of the state government to make the college a premier institution of the country he added.

He said the ancient system of medicine in India Ayurveda, was acquiring more relevance now a days. Since the Himalayas had abundant herbs and valuable medicinal plants, the state government should encourage the Ayurveda system of medicine, he added. He said apart from 50 MD seats, courses in six new subjects had been started at the college.

Mr Dhumal said Himachal was one of the few states in the country which had made great strides in the field of information technology. Apart from introducing computer education in all senior secondary schools of the state, a new engineering college was being set up in the state, he added.

The Chief Minister lashed out at the previous Congress government for using regionalism to come to power in the state.

Later, the Chief Minister presided over the concluding function of the four-day 55th Northern Regional Livestock and Poultry Show at Palampur. Participants from the states of Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Uttar Pradesh, Uttaranchal, Rajasthan and Delhi attended the show.

Acting on a specific information provided by the truck owners who had been hired to transport the machinery to Delhi by Pankaj Khanna, the police raided the premises of a godown owned by Anand Barmani in Libaspur area of Delhi last week. The machinery which had been stacked there by Pankaj Khanna at a rent of Rs 2,000, was recovered by the police and brought back to Baddi this Monday.
