Strive Towards Achieving Self-reliance: Akhtar To Students

Jammu; Minister for Educa­tion Naeem Akhtar on Satur­day said the present dispensa­tion is working relentlessly to make the students self-reliant and empower them so that after leaving the college, they become jobs givers instead of job seekers.

The Minister was speaking after inaugurating Red Cross Mela at Government College for Women, Gandhi Nagar in Jammu, an official spokesper­son said.

“Red Cross is a noble mis­sion and involvement of students in this cause will definitely give them a learn­ing experience,” the Minister said, adding that confection­ary, floral art and craft dis­played by the students is of unmatched quality.

Applauding the college authorities for organizing Red Cross Mela, the Min­ister said the government will make such kind of pro­grammes a regular feature of education system so that students can hone their skills and utilize them for prospering in their careers.

He further said the gov­ernment will do handhold­ing of these students until they achieve their dreams. Opening new avenues of growth and employment for these students is the main focus of the present dispen­sation, he added.

Besides witnessing the cul­tural programme being pre­sented by the college students, the Minister also visited vari­ous awareness stalls displayed by different government de­partments and college admin­istration for creating aware­ness among the masses about environment conservation, civil defense, heritage and cul­ture of the State. A blood dona­tion camp was also organized during the Mela.

While interacting with the students, the Minister asked them to gain as much knowl­edge as they can and work for the betterment of the society. He asked them to focus on becoming entrepreneurs and play their role in uplifting the weaker sections of the society.

Commissioner/Secretary, Higher Education Department Dr Asgar Hassan Samoon, Prin­cipal GCW, Gandhi Nagar Dr Kiran Bakshi, Honorary Secre­tary, Indian Red Cross Society, Jammu RC Puri and staff mem­bers of the college were pres­ent in the Mela.
