Bikaner technical university has a doubtful future in BJP rule

Bikaner Technical University (BTU) established by Congress government in September 2013 has an uncertain future due to political wrangle.The university established to shed load of Rajasthan Technical University in Kota was put on hold by the new government for review in February.

The BTU was aimed at handling technical institutes of 12 districts in western Rajasthan. RTU has 154 engineering and 91 management colleges. The role of BTU was to diversify technical education by introducing courses and research programmes which are viable in the region.

After the arrival of the new government, BTU started facing the indifference.

"This government is acting with vengeance without considering the damages it is causing to the people. The BTU could have given fresh lease of life to the struggling engineering colleges but they have missed this opportunity", said Manoj Kamra, RTI expert based in Bikaner.
