New Delhi: In what could be the best example of a u-turn by a political party after losing any election, the Congress that had faced poll debacle in Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections recently seems to have forgotten to deliver its promises made during the poll campaigns.

A Central Agriculture University in Bundelkhand that was promised by the Congress scion Rahul Gandhi during poll campaigns in the state, seems to be a distant dream as no realistic attempts have been made in this regard so far.

Interestingly, the Rs 500 crore university project that was on the top most agenda in the poll promises of the Congress before the election results were announced, failed to find place in the General Budget presented by Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee on March 16 in the Lok Sabha.

Absence of any proposal for the proposed agriculture university in the Budget 2012-13 clearly indicates that Bundelkhand has to wait longer for a central university.

Last year during the Winter Session of the Parliament, the UPA government has introduced a bill for setting up agriculture varsity in Uttar Pradesh’s Bundelkhand region but heavy uproar from the Opposition forced the government to defer introduction of a Bill in the Rajya Sabha.

However, Agriculture Minister, Sharad Pawar, had promised to reintroduce the Bill in the Budget Session, but the varsity bill failed to meet its destiny in the Parliament.
