CM announced upgradation of Kangra Hospital to 75 bed
Dharamshala, 7 September - After performing foundation stone of Government
Degree College at Takipur in district Kangra, Chief Minister Shri Virbhadra
Singh said that despite facing criticism from opposition on opening
schools, the present government opened and upgraded many schools even in
those far flung and remote areas where the strength of the students was
“Our focus is on providing quality education to all the children at their
doorsteps”, he said.
He said that the standard of education in almost all private schools was
not up to the requisite standard as the results in many such institutions
were declared on the basis of grading system without conducting any proper
examination. “If there were no exams, how we will come to know the
performance of the children”, he questioned. We have decided that all the
schools will have compulsory examination at higher levels so that ability
of children and their performance based on merit could be assessed.
We will soon have a separate wing for sudden inspections in the schools,
which will, besides checking the quality of education being imparted will
also ensure that the teachers do not remain willfully absent from the
schools particularly in rural areas. If any teacher is found on leave
without getting it sanctioned from sanctioning authority he will be
dismissed from the service, he said.
We want that every student to be given attention, to be well taught and the
teachers should realise their responsibility. They should also concentrate
on providing Moral based education to the children.
He said that the government was endeavoured to strengthen the health
services and had opened three more medical colleges in the State at Chamba,
Hamirpur and at Nahan in Sirmaur with adequate financial provision, besides
AIIMS at Bilaspur.
He cautioned the people to be aware of those who divide the people on the
basis of region and religion.
