CHIEF MINISTER Shivraj Singh Chouhan today announced that a Sanskrit University would be established in the State. Many speakers had mentioned need of research on Vedas and other Sanskrit scriptures for its use in development at the inaugural session of the two-day national seminar on Rural Technology organised by the Vijnana Bharti here at Ravindra Bhavan.

Responding to the demand, the Chief Minister said that a Sanskrit University would be established in the State to promote Sanskrit and research on ancient Scriptures.

Speaking further, the Chouhan said that promotion of traditional and science-based ancient technology is important with modern technology for wholesome rural development. Similarly, relevant changes in traditional technologies in various areas are also necessary. He said that the state government would do best in this direction.

The CM said that the ancient texts in India mention about the use of science and technology for rural development and gave example of the use of traditional ‘Pat’ technology by the farmers of Jhabua to take water for irrigation at a higher level from lower level without any mechanical help.

The government would promote such traditional technologies, he said and added that the experts from organisations like Vijnana Bharti would provide assistance for this.

Former chairman of the Khadi and Village Industries Commission Mahesh Sharma, national president of Vijnana Bharti Prof K I Vasu, Dr Sudhin Sharma, Dr Sudhir Bhadoria, Jay Kumar, Mukesh Pandey and Sarvesh Pratap Singh were also present. The Chief Minister also released a souvenir on the occasion.

The seminar is being sponsored by the MP Council of Science and Technology and the Rajiv Gandhi Technical University. A number of scientists, science students and officers of various departments are attending the seminar.
