The Uttar Pradesh government has decided to set up a university for persons with disabilities in Lucknow.

The decison was taken at a state cabinet meeting under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Mayawati. The cabinet said that the University would be named after eminent social worker Shakuntala Mishra, who devoted her entire life to the service of disabled persons.

The cabinet also decided that the construction work of boundary wall of the University would be done by the Disabled Welfare Department and the works of power and water supply and roads including safety measures by concerned departments from their own budgets.

It may be recalled that the Shakuntala Mishra Memorial Service Trust was selected by a high level committee headed by the state Chief Secretary on May 8, 2008 to oversee the construction of the university.
