Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot inaugurated nine higher education colleges and 10 engineering and polytechnic colleges organised by the Higher and Technical Education Department. During the inauguration the CM said his government is committed to making Rajasthan a leading state in the country in the field of higher and technical education.
The higher and technical education colleges have been built at a cost of about Rs 62 crore and Rs 23.22 crore, respectively. The polytechnic colleges will have girls hostels, labs, an innovative syllabus, e-content and semester system, according to an official statement.
The CM also said it is our priority to spread higher and technical education to remote areas of the state so that children living in villages can also become excellent human resources like doctors, engineers, scientists and research scholars.
He said the unprecedented work done to open 87 new government colleges in the last one-and-a-half-year shows the state government’s determination to promote higher education.
Minister of State for Technical Education Subhash Garg said Rajasthan has emerged as a model of good governance even in challenging times of the coronavirus pandemic. Minister of State for Higher Education Bhanwar Singh Bhati said the government’s aim has been that children living in remote areas should have opportunities to pursue higher education near their home.
प्रदेश के गांव-ढाणी में रहने वाले बच्चे भी डॉक्टर-इंजीनियर, साइंटिस्ट तथा रिसर्च स्कॉलर जैसे उत्कृष्ट मानवीय संसाधन के रूप में तैयार हो सकें, इस उद्देश्य से दूरस्थ क्षेत्रों तक उच्च एवं तकनीकी शिक्षा का प्रसार करना हमारी प्राथमिकता है। pic.twitter.com/HBrU1GIa5i
