SAMBA, Jan 22: "Youth is the agent of change. With transformation of youngsters into knowledge powerhouse, the entire country can be transformed". Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha made these remarks during his visit to Central University of Jammu at Samba.
While addressing the gathering, the Lt Governor spoke on the length and breadth of the New Education Policy and new dimensions it will bring in the education system.
The Lt Governor said that the New Education Policy will ensure that the coming generation is given opportunity to leave the old, fixed path and take up new and innovative challenges to create AatmaNirbhar Bharat.
With the New Education Policy, youth can follow their passion and most importantly focus on 'How to think' instead of 'What you think' as envisioned by the Prime Minister, the Lt Governor observed.
Making a special mention of the Teaching fraternity, the Lt Governor said that Teachers can freely take new initiatives to focus on job-oriented education. Teachers are nurturing the powerhouse of the nation. They should encourage students to take up new research, tread new path of innovation which nobody has ever taken to explore, he added.
New generation is thinking of spending vacation on the moon. Our teachers will have to share this dream and create a New Tomorrow, a New Future and a New Vision", the Lt Governor observed.
The Lt Governor also narrated how Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya with his lofty ideals, reformative spirit and vision, established Banaras Hindu University, one of the best universities in the world. At the time of Independence, we had only five universities, but those few universities produced many great Scientists, Engineers, Doctors and Scholars. Today, we all need to introspect where we stand in terms of quality of education and research, the Lt Governor added.
Aimed at making the UT self-sufficient, the Lt Governor called upon all stakeholders to contribute towards the development of New and AatmaNirbhar Jammu Kashmir. Terming Teachers' role as most crucial at this juncture, the Lt Governor observed that with new generation under the able guidance of teachers, the potential of youth can be developed for bringing in the revolution in every sector.
On emerging global trends, the Lt Governor said that there are always new challenges and opportunities in the globalized world and we are facing completely new competition today. We can be amongst the frontrunners only if we focus on producing something better than others.
The Lt Governor said that the consistent engagement with other centres of excellence in our education system aimed at developing a vast talent pool to bridge the gap between skill sets and modern day industrial requirements. He further stressed on incorporating students' feedback system in the education system, which leads to healthy communication and improvement in the institution.
The Lt Governor laid special emphasis on conducting periodic analysis across the whole gamut of faculty recruitment to identify the gaps and what needs to be done to be on the top. "This strategy, I believe, will turn any kind of crisis into an opportunity", said the Lt Governor.
Meanwhile, the Lt Governor released a handbook on Medicinal and Aromatic Plant Diversity of Central University of Jammu authored by Dr. Pankaj Mehta and Anjali Bala.
While speaking on the occasion, Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar, Advisor to the Lt Governor stressed on more incubation, innovation and research activities to be carried out in the University. He congratulated the University for imbibing and imparting traditional values along with the modern educational courses.
In his welcome Address, Prof. Ashok Aima, Vice Chancellor, Central University of Jammu presented a report highlighting past achievements and future action plans of the university, besides giving a briefing on the placements and research activities being carried out in the University.
During the Lt Governor's visit, Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Central Universities of Jammu, Kashmir & Himachal Pradesh; besides a MoU was signed between Central University of Jammu and IIT Jammu for academic exchange and collaboration, in his presence.
Foundation stones were laid for infrastructural development projects worth Rs 33.77 crores, including 12.4 km long Trikuta Chardiwari costing Rs 25 crores and Devika Mahila Chhatrawas (100 bedded Girls hostel) worth Rs 8.77 crores, to be completed in 12 months and 10 months, respectively.
