Gamlin urges students to fulfill expectations

AALO, Sep 7: Tax & Excise Minister Jarkar Gamlin advised students to concentrate more on their studies to fulfill the hopes and expectations of their parents.
Attending the 4th foundation day celebration of the North East Frontier Technical University (NEFTU) at Gumin Kiin here on Friday, Gamlin said opening of a university at the doorsteps of the students was a boon for them as many students in the past used to go outside the state to pursue higher education.
He said the NEFTU would reduce the burden on parents in educating their children, and urged the faculty members, who are from different parts of the country, to give their best to produce human resources in the state.
The minister also presented the ‘best faculty’ award to Jumngam Kamduk of the institute’s sociology department.
NEFTU vice-chancellor Dr Tejum Padu outlined the history and the affiliation of the college with various education councils, as well as the various activities of the college.
He said the university “is not dumping all discipline at a go but gradually striving hard to take up all possible disciplines to mitigate the educational needs of the students.”
The state government has set up a regulatory commission for private universities, and the NEFTU in particular has undergone four layers of examinations to be recognized as a potential university, Dr Padu said.
He said the government has entrusted the university to take up skill development training. The VC also submitted a memorandum seeking proper road connectivity from the government higher secondary school to the university.
Among others, West Siang DC Sode Potom, NEFTU chancellor Dileep K Nair, prominent public leaders, and principals and headmasters of various private and government schools attended the programme. (DIPRO)
