Chief minister Virbhadra Singh here on Tuesday said the central University would be located at Dharamsala and there was no question of shifting it to any other place.
While talking to a group of reporters here after returning from New Delhi this evening, he said Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member of Parliament Anurag Thakur was unnecessarily trying to shift it to Dehra.
He, however, said a few colleges of the university could be located outside Dharamsala as per needs of the university authorities.
Singh hailed the induction of JP Nadda in the central cabinet and added that with his getting the health portfolio, the claim of the state government for starting three medical colleges in Hamirpur, Chamba and Nahan would be taken up on priority basis.
Replying to a question about the induction of former Congress party leader, Birendra Singh in the central cabinet, he said his induction would not harm the party in the state of Himachal Pradesh and Haryana. “He is a seasoned politician and will work for the well being of the masses,” said the CM.
It's worth mentioning here that Singh was the Congress party in-charge for the Himachal Pradesh being national general secretary of the Congress party during last Vidhan Sabha elections and had done a lot for brining Congress party back into power in the state.
