Tangla AASU fetes meritorious students
TANGLA : In a bid to build a competitive mindset among the students, the All Assam Students’ Union (AASU) Tangla regional unit organized a special felicitation programme for the meritorious HSLC students, two HS position holders and two PhD scholars here at Bordoloi Bhavan in Tangla on Sunday. The programme, which was presided over by Pranjal Deka, was inaugurated by assistant general secretary of AASU, Jayanta Kr. Bhattacharjya. In his inaugural speech, Bhattacharjya exhorted students to imbibe the qualities of devotion towards god, respect for parents and teachers and moral values.Speaking in the valedictory function as appointed speaker, AASU general secretary Lurinjyoti Gogoi said, “The students pursuing higher studies should have dedication and devotion towards achieving the goals.” Gogoi laid greater emphasis on the social aim of education so that education could develop social feelings in children which would make them contribute to meet the demands of society after meeting their own needs. “We have many issues with the State boards and councils, the government should change the education policies for the welfare of the students. Incidents like the Dokmoka lynching are blatant examples that we are gripped by superstitions and have swayed away from morality,” said Gogoi.Attending the event as chief guest, reputed author and poet Dr. Nanda Singh Borkhola, currently serving as Assistant IGP, Assam Police said, “We should love our mother tongue. Students should always stick to their roots and origin no matter how high they fly in their life. Language is much greater than religion and thus people, irrespective of caste, community and religion, thrive for a greater Assamese society.” The bureaucrat-turned-author exhorted the government for improving the infrastructure of vernacular-medium schools of the State. In the felicitation programme, as many as 295 meritorious students who passed the HSLC exam along with Mohan Pradhan and Vidhi Beria, 5th and 6th position holders in HS Commerce, and two PhD scholars Dr Chandra Kanta Saikia and Dr. Bhupali Kashyap were feted with a citation letter, phulam gamosa and japi each.
