Governor inaugurates ‘Pustakalaya’

ITANAGAR, 17 Mar: Governor BD Misha on Wednesday inaugurated a ‘Pustakalaya’ (library cum activity facility) under the Pustakalaya Project at the Government Primary School in the Raj Bhavan Complex here.

The Pustakalya Project is an initiative to set up aesthetically designed, meaningful and functional libraries at primary schools to enhance reading and comprehension among students while fostering free expression and critical thinking, a communiqué from the Raj Bhawan said.

The project is funded through the corporate social responsibility programme by willing corporate houses.

Interacting with the students, the governor advised them for optimum utilization of the facility and its proper maintenance.

“There should be activities every day under a teacher, who should be accountable and responsible for preserving and organising it. Every child of the school must benefit from the facility,” he said.

The governor said the ‘Pustakalaya Project’ will promote knowledge and scientific temper amongst the children. He commended the state’s education department and the state government for the initiative.

Wife of the governor, Neelam Misra, Primary Education Special Secretary Soumya Saurabh, and secondary Education Special Secretary Shashvat Saurabh, who is also looking after the CSR projects, and officers from the education department and officers from the education department were present on the occasion.
