    ITANAGAR: A day after the Centre gave a green signal to an agriculture research institute in Assam, chief minister Pema Khandu sought the Centre's support for a full-fledged agriculture university and a Centre of excellence for horticulture in the state.

    Union minister of state for agriculture and farmers' welfare Sudarshan Bhagat called on Khandu at his office on Thursday, an official communique stated. Khandu requested the Union minister to consider a full-fledged agriculture university and a Centre of Excellence for horticulture in the state. The chief minister also sought a pig research centre to support pig-rearing and help develop animal husbandry.
