Stressing on streamlining the education system Nagaland Governor, P.B. Acharya, said there is an urgent need for a total overhaul in the system, as most of the institutions are still practicing the colonial British rule system.

Addressing the silver jubilee cum 25th freshers’ social of Pranabananda Women’s College (PWC) in Dimapur Acharya expressed serious concern about some universities were luring youths with mere degrees instead of equipping them with skills.

“This act has rather created more educated unemployed youths,” he said, adding, “It is an act of crime.” He further added that such universities depend solely on government funds and lack productivity, resulting in students hunting for jobs desperately with some even going to the extent of paying bribes.

He also highlighted Centre’s initiative under the leadership of the Narendra Modi, which had earmarked Rs 12,000 crore, to impart skill oriented education. “This scheme is specifically targeted at creating more self-reliant students and not just students with mere degrees.”

Acharya lauded the college for attaining a milestone and for playing an exemplary role as one of the leading colleges for women in the state. The governor further called upon the people to change their perception towards women and daughters, who he said were often regarded as liabilities.

He urged upon the wealthy people to come forward in helping out in various social services and also to the Nagas residing elsewhere, to come and help their people. “It is them who can make the state a better place and that they shouldn’t wait for someone else to do it on their behalf.”
