Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal Saturday announced that the government has decided to set up an organic agriculture university and a veterinary university in the state. Addressing the 21st convocation of the Assam Agricultural University (AAU) at Jorhat on Saturday, as distinguished special guest, the Assam CM in the keynote address said both these universities would fulfil a long-felt need of the region and that the first would promote conservation of the environment and ecology. The detailed project reports for both the universities have been submitted by the AAU earlier. The Veterinary College at Lakhimpur was proposed to be upgraded to a university.

Sonowal while praising the students for achieving much in the academic field and bringing laurels to the state by winning awards and international recognition he said the students should also go to the doorsteps of the farmers and make a difference by guiding them on scientific methods of farming in order to increase yield as well as to go for integrated and multiple cropping.
In this way the farmers can double their income, keeping in view the objective of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “The state has successfully intervened in the agriculture sector by implementing the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Nidhi Yojana and other farmers’ schemes and the university has produced globally competitive human resources who have also contributed to the development of agriculture in the state,”Sonowal said.
