Bengaluru: The Karnataka government said it was mulling opening Sanskrit and Music departments at all universities in the state.
“There is growing interest towards Sanskrit in foreign countries these days. We cannot ignore our languages.
Our government has taken steps towards establishing a Sanskrit University at Magadi,” Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister C N Ashwathnarayan said.
Though there were efforts in this regard earlier, it did not come into effect, he was quoted as saying by his office in a statement.
The minister said 100 acres of land has been allotted for the Sanskrit University.
