  • Fundamentally Gujarat has changed access to tertiary education and has increased the number of colleges from 442 in 2001 to 1,762 in 2011, says Narendra Modi.

 

On August 3, 2012, Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed the students and staff of DAV School, Adambakkam, Chennai, via video conferencing on the occasion of the school’s 28th Annual celebrations. The Chief Minister said the celebration becomes important as it is taking place in the year of 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekanandaji. He wished great success to the school, students and teachers and asked them to celebrate years of dedication and commitment put in by the people running the institute. Shri Modi also praised the institute’s authorities who worked hard since the inception days and scaled new heights.

The Chief Minister offered his tribute to Varadarajanji, a humble RSS worker who inspired by Guruji Golwalkar, built up a massive educational infrastructure. He said in the 21st century, Asia will rule the world and India in particular will lead.  Shri Modi was impressed with the range of activities the school had undertaken for the students. To name a few: intellectual development, cultural, artistic & literary, yoga and meditation, sports and physical education, and citizenship training.

Narendra Modi said officials of government of Gujarat went to every household and launched a state-wide drive in 2003 for enrolling students into schools. Adding to this, he said, special thrust has been given to the enrolment of girl child in Gujarat. The programme runs under the name of Shala Praveshotsav and Kanya Kelavani. The Chief Minister also emphasized on the fact that these two schemes benefitted the children of the state and the government has thus been able to reduce the dropout ratio from 20.5% in 2001-02 to 2.09% in 2010-11. He also spoke on Gunotsav, an annual quality education campaign that is being undertaken by the Gujarat government since past two years.

Shri Modi said fundamentally Gujarat has changed access to tertiary education and has increased the number of colleges from 442 in 2001 to 1,762 in 2011. The state has set up universities like National Law University, Children’s University, Sanskrit University, Sports University and Indian Institute of Teacher’s Education. Through ‘Vanche Gujarat’ 60 lakh people read together at one point of time, the Chief Minister said adding that to build youth power in the state, the first and foremost thing is to reach out to children and universalize access to secondary education, thus increasing the percentage of people taking higher education. Adding to this, Narendra Modi said Gujarat government is also organising world’s biggest sports events like the Yoga Demonstration, Chess competition and Khel Mahakumbh.

Shri Modi also said eMPOWER is an initiative undertaken by the Gujarat government to provide and enhance skills of the youth today. iCREATE is another programme which the Gujarat government has initiated to promote innovation among the youth. Narendra Modi conveyed his regards to Dr. J. Jayalalithaaji and said under her leadership Tamil Nadu will progress in the field of education. He also gave his best wishes to the students of DAV school.
