To a query, he said Mr. Yediyurappa has been apprised on the need to earmark funds in the State Budget for the establishment of an Ayurveda university in Shivamogga, for which land acquisition has already been completed. He said that as the Western Ghats region is known for its huge repository of herbs, such a university would promote study and research on them.
