SRINAGAR: Member state legislature, Mohammad Khurshid Alam on Saturday asked the teaching and the student fraternity to understand the essence of education in its real sense and work with earnest efforts to make the society a better place to live in.
He was addressing students and teachers at Gandhi Memorial College, Srinagar where he launched the annual college magazine ‘Sangarmaal’.
Alam in his address asserted that Gandhi Memorial College is of the historical significance in the summer capital of the state and “has produced great sons of the soil since its inception”. He added that the overall development of the college and ensuring quality education to its students would be amongst his topmost priorities.
Alam added that the college has served in best of its abilities and has been witness to both prosperous and tumultuous times in the state.
“Time has come when the significance of this college would no longer be ignored or undermined and the present government is making hectic efforts to revolutionise the system of education in the state. I can assure you with certainty that the issues pertaining to the staff and the students of the college would be resolved without any delay,” Alam said.
The PDP leader also interacted with the staff members of the college and gave a patient hearing to their grievances. He suggested modernisation of the classrooms and college campus so that the college once again becomes a hub of quality learning.
The MLC also donated a bus to the college from his constituency development fund. He said the donation was made to fulfill a promise he made to the college authorities earlier this year, it read.
