The residents of Nnkana Sahib have long been waiting for the establishment of the university. President General Pervaiz Musharraf gave approval to the university project in 2006 on the demands of Sikh-Muslim Federation’s president.

Since then the project has been subject to various controversies as to its exact location. Chief Minister of Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar on Friday laid the foundation stone of Baba Guru Nanak University which would be first of its kind.

The university project would cost around 6 billion rupees covering the area of 10 acres of land as per statement shared by the Government of Punjab.

The statement added that the establishment of Baba Guru Nanak University is part of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision. Prior to this inauguration Chief Minister also inaugurated the first-ever Tourism Development Corporation of Punjab (TDCP) Motel which has been constructed at the cost of 13 crores. This motel will promote religious tourism in the district.
