Lauding the progress made under the ‘Hamara Vidyalaya’ initiative in the aspirational district, he emphasized on providing “100 percent electricity, toilets and boundary walls in all the schools.”
The DCM also emphasized on rationalization of teachers’ posting within the district, quality education, and introduction of the biometric system of attendance in all educational institutions of the district.
He called for initiating a social movement against drug abuse, and said the de-addiction centre here should be made functional. Mein also dwelt on the need to establish a rehabilitation centre in Namsai, to be run by an NGO, besides an “ideal farmer training centre” in the district.
The DCM launched the ‘robotic awareness programme’, which will be introduced in the schools of the district by the science & technology department. He also flagged off four ambulances for ferrying pregnant women to hospitals in the district.
Mein also inaugurated the Poshan Mela here, organised by the women & child development department in collaboration with the urban development department.
