Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje on Tuesday accused the Centre of delaying the process of setting up an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in the BJP-ruled state.

"Cities have been identified in states like Andhra Pradesh and Bihar for setting up IITs, but the state of Rajasthan has yet not received any specified place," she told reporters in New Delhi.

The state government had recommended to the Union Government that an IIT could be set up in Kota district.

After the announcement that Rajasthan would get an IIT, "nothing proper has been done in this direction by the Central government," Raje said.

"If it is so, then the Centre should leave it to my Government," she added.
