Veterinary College will be constructed in Sikkim where Sikkimese students will be given free education, this was announced by Chief Minister Pawan Chamling.

The Chief Minister on Monday began his Jan Seva Abhiyan in the East district by inaugurating Ganesh statue at Ganesh temple at Khamdong Aritar. He also performed Puja and hawan at the temple premises and interacted with the local people and students.

While addressing the huge gathering at the Gumpa lawns, Chamling reiterated the Government’s commitment to reach out to every constituency in the state and fulfil the needs and demands of the people for ensuring equitable development of every section of the population.

“The 32-day visit of the entire Government machinery to every constituency exhibits the sincere commitment of the Government to ensure that nobody is deprived of any rights privileges and opportunities,” he mentioned. Focusing his address towards the students and youth, he urged them to use their sense of discrimination to decide what is right and wrong and not be swayed by negative opinion makers.

“Government has laid highest priority to education and an environment has been created where the poorest of the poor get access to quality educated. Sikkim is steadily moving towards being a 100% literate state,” he asserted.

Announcing that veterinary college will be constructed where Sikkimese students will be given free education and medical college is being constructed in Gangtok where all Sikkimese students will be given free medical education, CM pointed, “Government has established 26 colleges and 7 universities in the last 22 years, along with providing various incentives to encourage total literacy and ensure that students can study any subject of their choice. We are also coming up with our own State University.”

He urged the students to move from perceiving education as certificate or job oriented to life oriented so that our personality is developed. The purpose of education should be to make us good human beings.

The Chief Minister also encouraged the students to change their mindset and look beyond government jobs and become entrepreneurs, producers and job providers.
