Mishra seeks residential KVs in border districts of Arunachal

NEW DELHI, Jun 6: Arunachal Pradesh Governor BD Mishra has requested Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar to open residential Kendriya Vidyalayas (KV) in conjunction with Navodaya Vidyalayas in border districts of Arunachal Pradesh.
The governor, who met Javadekar here on Tuesday, said opening of KVs in four to five border districts would immensely help the school-going children of remote areas.
“It will also generate employment and livelihood, in addition to bringing development,” the governor said, and emphasized on fast-tracking the planning and commissioning of these schools.
Appreciating the governor’s suggestions, the union minister promised to open residential KVs-cum-Navodaya Vidyalayas in the state as early as possible.
When the governor mentioned the matter of appointing a director at the Yupia NIT and a permanent vice chancellor at Rajiv Gandhi University, the HRD minister promised to complete the process for the appointment of the director and the VC at an early date.
The governor also met the commissioner of Navodaya Vidyalaya on the same day and briefed him on the need for opening primary and secondary schools in Arunachal. (PRO, Raj Bhavan)
