Education is top priority of govt: Parl Secy

TAWANG, Jul 3: Lumla MLA Jambey Tashi’s two days pilgrimage to the holy Taksang Gonpa at Taksang village and Guru Padmasambhava Lhagang at Lumpo in Zemithang concluded.

The Parliamentary Secretary for RWD was greeted by locals with much fervour across the valley. He addressed a series of meetings and had extensive interactive sessions with the locals and their representatives to garner first hand feedback at various villages during his trip.

At Taksang, Jambey paid obeisance to Guru Padmasambhava at the renowned Taksang Gonpa and prayed for world peace.

Briefing the villagers at the tiny hamlet the Indo-China boundary, he emphasized on quality education and called upon the teaching fraternity to dispense their duties with outmost sincerity. Lauding the village decision against transfer of teachers in absence of relievers, he directed the representatives of DDSE to opt against teachers transfer without replacements, stating that such practices shall have adverse effect on education of the pupils.

“Education is the prime priority of the government and it is dedicated for upliftment of educational scenario of the state. Though Lumla boasts of superior schools like Eklavya school and Jamtse Gatsel etc, and the denizens of Lumla constituency enjoy its quota of admission in the recently inaugurated VKV Mukto, I have pressed for a VKV at Lumla, to further embolden the education of our region and I am optimistic that it shall be commissioned soon,” he informed.

“Government jobs shouldn’t be the sole aspiration of education. These are scarce and the youth need to register in ITIs and learn different trades to make a career. An ITI at Lumla is also in the pipeline for economic boost of the unemployed,” Jambey, who also holds the portfolio of SDE, said.

He also elaborated on the vitality of health and hygiene, and Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan.

At Zemithang, he gave a patient hearing to the major encumbrances of countrymen from distinct hamlets and discussed various development projects.

On Sunday, the local legislator reached Lumpo, another village located near the Indo-China border. He assessed the progress of landscaping and beautification of the temple holding a massive gold plated statue of Guru Rinpoche on its top.  He also addressed the villagers at the venue.

Responding to memorandums presented by the villagers during the trip, he assured them of phase-wise redressal. Jambey also interacted with the villagers of Kharigor, Gorzham and Brokhenthang. (Courtesy Tawang Vigilance)
