They briefed the governor about their works and challenges in the state particularly in the field of education in rural areas.
Interacting with the representatives, the governor felicitated them for spreading education in far-flung villages, reports PRO.
He said that maximum Ggovernment resources are allotted for education and roads but in both sectors, it is not up to the expectation of the people. The local people themselves have to improve the credibility of the government schools.

“We are the only hope and we have to change the system and mindset which are eroding our society. Time does not wait for anybody. We have to stand against injustice in any form and at the same time walk fast. We have to prepare our younger generation for the future,” the governor added, stressing the imparting of useful, practical knowledge and skill in the youth.
Acharya emphasised on reinforcing spirit of fellowship amongst the people and with people of rest of the country. He assured the representative to assist them in such projects.
