ITANAGAR, Nov 8: The state government is committed to build adequate infrastructure in the education sector, said Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein during the valedictory function of the 39th College Day celebration of Dera Natung Government College here on Thursday.
“Education is recognized as a vital factor in building a promising future of the society,” Mein said. “Students should adopt high standards of ethics while studying in colleges and universities, and should maintain the true spirit of education.”

The DCM congratulated the organizers for the successful conduct of the College Day celebration. “Winning or losing in any discipline of sports, culture and literary is not at all important, but the happiness originating from the participation is a highly cherished trophy,” he said.
Local MLA Techi Kaso in his speech advised the students to learn “the art of managing their time.”
Congratulating the participants in the sports, cultural and literary activities, Kaso said, “Whether you have won a medal or not, you are all winners. In the long run, your active and continued participation in such activities will pay you rich dividends in terms of fitness, wellbeing, and happiness.”
