RUKSIN, Jan 25: Member of Parliament Tapir Gao urged the school teachers to discharge their duties with utmost sincerity and dedication to create human resources.
Attending the day-long golden jubilee celebration of Government Secondary School, Ngorlung in East Siang district on Saturday, Gao lamented that the “quality and quantity of human resources is found disproportionate to the number of educational institutions in the area.” He urged the former students to play a pro-active role for improving the educational scenario of their alma mater.
