Manipur and Nagaland are jointly planning to host a conclave of all Education Ministers of the North Eastern States to meet the challenges in the education sector, an official source in Imphal said.
An understanding to host the conclave was arrived at, during a discussion on managerial and administrative challenges of Sainik Schools of the country, particularly in the North East, between Manipur Education Minister Dr Th Radheshyam and Nagaland Education Minister Temjen Imna Along at Kohima on Monday.
The Manipur minister said that there are many common issues in the region, including the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir, which require special attention to bring the educational and other institutions at par with other bigger States.

Though the tentative schedule for holding the conclave and its venue are yet to be finalised, the two ministers stressed the commonality of the social, political and financial issues the North Eastern States face in the education sector, the source said.

During his visit to Kohima, Dr Radheshyam also called on Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio on Sunday and highlighted the financial difficulties of small States in providing adequate infrastructure in Sainik Schools and scholarships to cadets.

While appreciating the initiative to bring out relevant issues during the meeting of the Board of Governors of Sainik Schools held recently in New Delhi, Rio assured that all possible help would be extended in organising the proposed conclave of Education Ministers of the North Eastern States.

The Nagaland Chief Minister also assured that he would write personally to all the Chief Ministers so that the Central leadership can be collectively apprised of the prevailing unrest and the geographical terrain, which should be overcome while managing the education sector.

He also endorsed Dr Radheshyam’s suggestion to seek a one-time grant for construction of basic infrastructure, including administrative blocks, dormitory for cadets, and quarters for administrative and academic staff of Sainik Schools.
