‪Karnataka‬ all set to house its own ‪‎IITcampus‬ the news follows‪ protests‬ in the state!


‪#‎FinanceMinister‬ ‪#‎ArunJaitley‬ sanctioned an all new ‪#‎IIT‬ campus for Karnataka in March this year. The state government thus began to identify a suitable land for setting up the premier institute. Three towns including‪#‎Dharward‬ were inspected by a team of experts. Dharwad was finally chosen for the establishment as it had comparatively better infrastructure and overall facilities.
The excitement of the upcoming campus in the town however turned into protests when the locals learnt that ‪#‎ChiefMinister‬‪#‎Siddharamaiah‬ had suggested that ‪#‎Raichur‬ in ‪#‎NorthKarnataka‬ is a better place to set up the IIT campus. It is being said that some Congress leaders from Raichur pressurized the CM for IIT relocation.
Protests are being held by the opposition party ‪#‎BJP‬ as well as other Dharwad groups since the last few days. A bandh has been planned in Dharwad for today following this havoc.
