We Want University in Murshidabad

We, the people of Murshidabad.

In 1704 the nawab Murshid Quli Khan changed the seat of government from Dacca to Maksudabad, the capital city of sabe Bangla, comprising Bengal, Bihar and Orissa.

 According to 2011 Census, Murshidabad district has a population of 71 Lakh(7.10m) roughly equal to the nation of Bulgaria or the US state of Washington. This gives a ranking of 9th in India. The district has density of 1334 inhabitants per square kilometer. It has very low literacy rate. The total literacy rate of Murshidabad district was 66.59% in 2011 which is less than average literacy rate of the whole state that is 76.27%. 

 It is a very lamentable matter that after 70 years of independence there is not a single University in Murshidabad. Many political parties have come and gone but none of those had paid any attention to this matter. It is a matter of great shame that we have been begging for something which is our basic right. We think that We need to remind the government that it is their duty and our right to get the opportunity to have higher studies in our own district. 

 It is not a concern for a particular community rather it is a concern for all the inhabitants of Murshidabad. We are very hopeful that you would fulfill our demand.We hope you will make our dream come true. 

 Thanking you in anticipation of an early and sympathetic consideration of our demand.
