In a move that could boost education in the state of Assam, Education minister Himanta Biswa Sarma informed that the state government set up quality educational institutions in the state. He said that the 12 government colleges in Assam are on the lines of Guwahati's prestigious Cotton College.
"The objective behind opening new government colleges is to achieve excellence in the field of higher education. Hopefully, we will be able to open the colleges by 2016," he said.
"Our government wants at least one purely government or a government-aided college in every block headquarters across the state so that students are not deprived of higher education," Sarma added.
"Healthcare and education should be the priorities of the government and an escapist attitude in these two sectors is not acceptable," added Sarma.
At the same function, the state education department distributed post allotment orders to college employees. The move is expected to benefit the staff of 57 colleges of the state.
