Students are assets of the state: Mishra
ITANAGAR, Feb 13: Governor BD Mishra today said that students are the assets of the state and the guardian of our future.
Interacting with the students from Rajiv Gandhi University, Rono Hills, North Eastern Regional Institute of Science and Technology, Nirjuli and National Institute of Technology, Arunachal Pradesh on the theme, ‘Fundamentalism & Terrorism – a global challenge’ at Raj Bhavan, the governor said that fundamentalism and terrorism have always obstructed the society and the state in the maintenance of peace and march of prosperity.
“Terrorism, in any form, has no justification,” he said and called upon the students and youth to oppose fundamentalism and terrorism in all forms, everywhere and every time.
The governor complemented the apex national leadership for the ‘Look East and Act East’ policies.
“To address the issues of fundamentalism and terrorism, there is a need to change the mindset of the people,” he said.
“Students have a big role to play in this regard. They must exercise positive influence in their peer group,” added Mishra.
Underscoring the role of the students, the governor advised them to work with probity and rectitude in life.
“In every action, there must be accountability and transparency,” he said.
The governor exhorted the students to keep the safety, honour and welfare of the country first, the honour, welfare and comfort of the people second and one’s own ease and comfort the last.
He also emphasized that with high sense of nationalism, knowledge and innovation amongst the students, the nation will prosper.
Mishra stressed that it is the duty of every student to remain focused on academics with positivity.
On the occasion, many students shared their views and suggestions about the good governance, the fertility of fundamentalism and the tragedy of terrorism. They unanimously batted for the development initiatives.
