Ensure that institutions of higher learning invest in research, says PM to Governors
NEW DELHI :
PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said Governors as chancellors of universities should ensure that institutions of higher learning invest in research that fosters start-up culture and leads to job creation. The Prime Minister made these remarks at the concluding ceremony of the 50th annual conference of Governors and lieutenant Governors here. Referring to the development of tribal areas, Modi pressed for an appropriate use of technology and adoption of progressive schemes in the sphere of sports and youth development.
He also pitched for a mission-mode focus to be given to meeting the development needs of 112 aspirational districts, particularly those falling in the tribal areas of the country, and to ensure that they come up above the state and national averages on the relevant development indices at the earliest.
