Tribhuvan University is preparing to run its constituent campus in the main and satellite camps built to house Maoist combatants during the peace process in Chitwan.

Tribhuvan University was searching for a new place after the Agriculture and Forest Science University started running classes in the Agriculture Campus, Rampur.

TU Vice-Chancellor Tirtha Khaniya said his varsity was doing homework to run Agriculture Campus in the camps built to house former Maoist combatants in Shaktikhor after Agriculture Campus had to vacate its premises for Agriculture and Forest University.

According to VC Khaniya, preparations were underway to run Agriculture Campus at Shaktikhor and its satellite camps in Gairibari, Birendranagar’s Rasauli and Chainpur’s Bhutiya. Khaniya said that more than 200 bighas of land in Shaktikhor and other satellite camps could be used for the TU’s constituent campus.

The area is in the vicinity of government forest. He said he himself had visited the area and collected maps and other documents to submit them to the Cabinet for approval.

VC Khaniya said they had collected documents from the District Development Committee and survey office. He informed that the collected documents would be sent to the Cabinet through chief secretary. He claimed that they could run classes from the new places from the coming session.
