Rajen assures task force for NEP implementation soon
IMPHAL, Nov 8 (DIPR)
Education Minister S Rajen Singh has said that the Government has decided to constitute a task force for successful implementation of National Education Policy in the State. MLAs of every Constituency will also be empowered and consulted to effectively implement the policy, he added.
The Minister was speaking as chief guest at the reception ceremony organized by teaching and non-teaching staff of Pravabati College, Mayang Imphal.
At the event, Rajen maintained that the Central Government has been focusing on improving the education sector and as such it had introduced the National Education Policy. For successful implementation of the policy, cooperation of intellectuals and other professionals is required, he added.
Giving proper education to all children is a step forward to achieving the Nation’s goals. Unfortunately, the Government schools have not been able to perform well. One of the reasons for this is lack of dedication and sincerity on the part of the few who are responsible, he said.
The Minister further stated that most of the parents and guardians prefer to send their children to private schools even when Government schools provide free education. The Government schools are even providing free meals to children apart from providing study materials including books, note books, pen, pencil etc. There are some loopholes in the administration which need to be corrected at the earliest, he said adding stringent actions such as warnings are needed to make the “non-performing” staff and officials of the Department realise their duties, the Minister added.
Speaking as guest of honour, Deputy Speaker K Robindro Singh appealed the teaching and non teaching staff of Pravabati College to perform their duties with sincerity. To improve the infrastructure and other facilities of the college, the authorities concerned will be approached, he said. Chairperson, College Governing Body, Ch Pishakmacha Devi attended the function as president. Shantikumar Sharma, advisor to Chief Minister, Premchand Singh, Principal, Mayai Lambi College also attended the function as guests of honour.
