French govt to lend support to set up Aerospace centre in State

The French government has come forward to extend necessary support to set up the proposed Centre of Excellence in Aerospace in the State, said Higher Education Minister T B Jayachandra on Saturday.

Speaking to reporters in Bengaluru, he said that the State government would sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the French government in this regard during the Global Investors’ Meet.

“We will enter into an agreement to set up a School of Economics on the lines of the London School of Economics during the meet. I had a detailed discussion with the officers in London during my visit there recently,” he said.

Delay in appointment
Regarding delay in appointing the Lokayukta, he said that there was delay in appointing the Lokayukta in Uttar Pradesh and the Supreme Court had to intervene in this regard, but such a situation will not arise in Karnataka.

He added that a meeting will be held with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah shortly.
The State Cabinet will meet on Monday where the dates for the joint session of the legislature would be decided, he said.
