BJP government in Haryana on Friday decided to set up an AYUSH university at Kurukshetra, Ramdev also informed that he too plans to set up another university in the State, without elaborating about it.

"The Government will set up this university (at Kurukshetra), but we (under Patanjali) too will set up one. A resolution to this effect will be passed in Haryana Assembly soon," Ramdev told reporters here this evening.

When asked if he will seek any help from Manohar Lal Khattar government for setting up the university, Ramdev said, "we will seek legal advice from government, but not any financial incentive."

Khattar, who was also present in the press conference along with Ramdev said, Swami ji had multiple roles, one in which he run his organisation like in Haridwar or in Haryana, the government would not have any role in this. He was Haryana's brand ambassador for promotion of Yoga and Ayurveda, a role which he had accepted and we were seeking his guidance and moving forward on this.

About the proposed AYUSH university at Kurukshetra, Ramdev said it would have the facility of in-patient and out-patient departments, pharmacy and a herbal garden.

He assured the Chief Minister that Haridwar-based Patanjali Yogpeeth and the State Government would work together for setting up of this varsity.

The Yoga Guru also indicated that after Uttrakhand, Haryana would be a major base for Patanjali.
