Gandhinagar, Friday: Even as the world needs lakhs of quality teachers, Gujarat has initiated several action plans to fulfill the requirement, Chief Minister Narendra Modi said today while inaugurating a teachers' ‘chintan shibir' being organized by Swami Dharmabandhu Vedic Mission at Pransla in Rajkot district.

Mr. Modi said the 21st Century is dubbed as the ‘Century of Knowledge' and only India could lead the world in teaching man's duty to the society, character building and how to respect parents, guru and others. India has a rich culture and has been blessed with such illustrious teachers like Chanakya. If we have to make the 21st Century a ‘Century of India', we have to take a lead in providing gurus to the world, make India the ‘Vishwa Guru'.

He stressed on the need to create infrastructure and culture to provide quality education and produce quality teachers, along with imparting knowledge about modern sciences and technologies.

Talking about Gujarat's initiatives in this direction, Mr. Modi said, a Children's University has been set up in the state to take care of the children neglected by the breaking-up of joint family system which used to be a university of sorts. Similarly, an IITE is being set up on the lines of IIM and IIT to provide lakhs of teachers to the world. Similarly, he said, Gujarat is committed to produce quality sportspersons in Sports University, produce quality cattle in Kamdhenu University. Not to lag behind, he said, Gujarat has taken initiative in starting Forensic Science University and Raksha Shakti University to fulfill the Defence needs.

Former chairman of NCERT J.S. Rajput said that setting up a series of universities for human resources in innovative fields is the result of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi's farsightedness.

The Chief Minister honoured scientists Dr abhash Mitra, Mr. Rao, educationist Dr. G. Ravindra and Dr Rajendra Dikshit. Acharya Aditya Swami and Surendranandji presented a shawl to Mr. Modi.

Earlier, Punjab's Women and Child Welfare Minister Lakshmikanta Chawla paid a courtesy call on Mr. Narendra Modi.

People from all corners of India are seen in Asansol. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol: PM Modi
PM Modi says on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Didi will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state
In Asansol, PM Modi says Mamata Banerjee has skipped several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues

 

Addressing a huge rally in West Bengal’s Asansol ahead of sixth phase of assembly polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “TMC was broken after four phases of polls, `Didi' and `Bhatija' will be defeated by end of West Bengal elections. Voting of the fifth phase is also going on where people in large numbers are voting for the lotus flower to form the BJP government.”

“This region of Asansol has the potential to become the industrial centre of India since a long time. From bicycle to rail, from paper to steel, from aluminium to glass - people come from all across India to work in these factories. In a way, Asansol is mini India. People from all corners of India are seen here. But the misgovernance of Bengal governments affected Asansol,” said PM Modi while addressing the public meeting.

Speaking on Mamata Didi’s anti-development agenda, PM Modi stated, “Mamata Banerjee is against development of Bengal. We will work for the aspirations of the people of Bengal. New investment will come in. Bengal needs a government of double engines, not those who are stopping development. The BJP government of Bengal will implement every scheme that benefits you, which was stopped by Didi's government.”

Coming down hard at TMC supremo, the PM asserted, “Her politics is not limited to just protests, but it has crossed a dangerous limit of vengeance.” The Prime Minister also slammed Banerjee for skipping several meetings called by the Centre to discuss many key issues. He said, “In the last two meetings on Corona, the rest of the Chief Ministers came, but Didi did not. The rest of the Chief Ministers came to the Governing Council of NITI Aayog, but Didi did not. Such a huge campaign started in the country to clean river Ganga, but Didi did not even attend the meeting related to it.”

Prime Minister Modi while addressing a rally in Asansol said that on May 2, which is the day of assembly election results, Mamata Banerjee will be given the certificate of Bengal ex-chief minister by the people of the state.

Taking about the leaked audio of Mamata Banerjee, the Prime Minister remarked, “You must have heard an audio tape on what happened in Cooch Behar yesterday. The audio was of Didi doing politics after the tragic death of 5 people. In this audio, the TMC leader of Cooch Behar was being asked by Didi to organize a rally with the dead bodies of the slain.”
