Jadavpur and Calcutta Universities best in India, Didi congratulates everyone
That Bangla is among the best in India in many aspects has been proved once again. As per the QS India University Rankings 2020, University Calcutta (CU) and Jadavpur University (JU) have secured the first and second positions respectively among the government universities in the country.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted the fact out earlier today. She congratulated everyone concerned and gave her best wishes to all.
She tweeted, “I’m happy to share with you that as per QS INDIA RANKING 2020, University of Calcutta and Jadavpur University have secured first & second positions respectively among all Government Universities in India. My heartiest congratulations and best wishes to all. জয় হিন্দ । জয় বাংলা।“
This ranking once again proves that education in the State is in good hands, despite what the naysayers say. The Trinamool Congress Government has, over the last eight years, increasing the number of universities from 12 (2011) to 40.
The foundation stones of a few more universities like Greenfield University, Kanyashree University, etc. have been laid by Mamata Banerjee. In the last Assembly session, Bills were passed for the establishment of the State-aided Hindi University and a private university in the name of Swami Vivekananda.
