Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy confirmed that the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) will not be bifurcated as proposed in the budget speech.

Instead, an institute superior to any Indian Institute of Technology will come up soon in Hassan, reports the Hindu.

There was a stiff resistance from the people of Belagavi and North Karnataka over this VTU split and on Saturday a huge rally was taken out in which all leaders from all political parties, seers, students and business associations participated and showcased a show of strength and unity.

But we do not have any such intention, and I have decided to drop the idea,” he said, reports the Hindu.

  1. Dear Editor,

    Though the Government has declared that there will not be any bifurcation of VTU, the facts are that it slowly and happening from the back door. Please visit the VTU website, examination results ( you will find the results are in two sections, one for Bangalore and one for others. I hope the bifurcation happens without anyone even realising it.
    For your information please.
