Kerala to Name Its Technological University After Abdul Kalam
The Kerala government has decided to name its proposed Technological University after the name of late President of India Dr APJ Kalam as to honour his great contribution into the field of science and technology to the nation.
The announcement was made by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in the state Assembly.
"Dr Kalam was a person who had made exceptional contributions to accelerate India's pace in the field of science and technology. He had close connections with the state for around 20 years as a scientist," he said.
"So we decided to name the Technological University as APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University," Chandy said.
The chief minister also said that the state wanted the mortal remains of Dr Kalam to be brought to Kerala to enable the public to pay homage, but the plea was not accepted by the Centre due to some 'technical reasons'.
