Amaravati: Emphasising the importance of education to all, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu gave a call to the people of the state for developing it as knowledge economy.
Participating in a workshop on Tuesday on Human Development and Investment Attractiveness as part of fifth day of week-long Nava Nirmana Deeksha in Vijayawada, Chief Minister Naidu clarified that the state formation day couldn’t be considered as a celebration, which was made against to the aspirations of the people of Andhra Pradesh.
When the people are in deep crisis and the state was bifurcated in a most unscientific manner doing injustice, how we can celebrate the occasion, he queried. At the same time we should not keep ourselves idle and in a sorrow mood, hence we have taken up Nava Nirmana Deeksha, where people can pledge to develop the state with new spirit dedicating themselves for the upliftment of the newly formed state, Naidu said.
Lashing out at the Congress party, which he termed as the main culprit for the state bifurcation he alleged that still some forces are trying to create hurdles for the development process.
While stressing the need to rise ourselves in the fourth industrial revolution which is focused on knowledge, technology and Internet of Things, the Chief Minister has appealed the people to give priority to education, which will create wealth.
He said the state should become an industrial hub for the world, where several IT companies from abroad also are evincing interest to invest in Andhra Pradesh. Out of 11 universities, which were promised to be established under AP Reorganisation Act, already nine were grounded and the remaining two will commence very soon, he said.
“Our government is giving much priority to Skill Development, which is the need of the hour for the educated youth of the state who are lacking skills. For the financially poor children belonging to upper castes we are providing Rs 10 lakh for each student for their studies abroad.
The youth should not stop their studies in the middle because of financial problems. Our government will give financial support to every student, who wishes to pursue higher studies,” Naidu assured.
