Yashwant Sinha asked whether Mukesh Ambani is God! The government gave these answers
Along with IIT Delhi and IIT Mumbai, the Geo Institute has been given the status of the Institute of Eminence, which means that former BJP leader Yashwant Sinha has called a ticklish attack on the central government. They asked if the Ambani is God?
Yashwant Sinha said in a tweet that “The Geo Institution is not established yet. It does not exist. Yet the government gave him an aminent tag. It is important to be Mukesh Ambani.
After this he wrote in the next tweet, ‘Is he God?’
The Union Human Resource Development Ministry (HRD) yesterday gave status of the Institute of Eminence to six institutions. This includes IIT Delhi, IIT Bombay, IISc Bangalore, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, BITS Pilani and Geo Institute. After this, the controversy started with the Geo Institute, because he did not even make it. Many people questioned how they kept in the same level as IIT. The Opposition Congress alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi did this to benefit his industrialist friend.
Cleanliness of the HRD Ministry
High Education Secretary R. Subramaniam, who gave a clean sweep on the whole issue, said that this status given in three categories. He said that the first category is of government institutions which include IIT, the second category is of private institutions, which have institutions like BITS Pilani and Manipal.
Explaining the reason for joining the Geo Institute, he further said, “The third category is of the Greenfield Pvt Institute, which has not yet started, but where clearly there is a desire to make a world class institute through responsible private investment. They should welcomed. ‘
He told that there were 11 proposals in Greenfield category. Only after considering the qualifications of the committee, their proposal and land-building etc., the committee found only one institution to be eligible. Obviously he was a Geo Institute.
He said that many people propaganda and the news spread that Rs. 1000 crores given to the Geo Institute. It’s not like this. Only government institutions will get Rs 1000 crore. He told that the Geo Institute just got the letter of intent, according to which they to established in three years. When they are established, they will get the status of the Institute of Eminence. They do not have this status right now. Now they have only Letter of Intent.
