Nizamabad: Rich tributes were paid to former President of India Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan on the occasion of his birthday here on Thursday. The day is celebrated as Teacher’s Day (Gurupuja) across the country. The Education Department organised Gurupuja programme at Dr Ambedkar Bhavan in the town for which MLC V G Goud was the chief guest. MLA Yendla Lakshminarayana presided over the meeting. In-Charge Collector K Harshavardhan and Additional Joint Collector Seshadri were the guests of honour.
V G Goud said that Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was able to attain the highest post in the country from the post of a lecturer because of his hard work and selfless service to the society. Teachers should also get inspiration from his life by providing quality education to students, Mr Goud advised.
“Because of hard work by the teachers, students are able to excel in SSC examinations in the State. As the State and Central governments have been striving to provide education, the number of schools has increased manifold,’’ he said.
Mr Goud urged the district officials to take steps to appoint teachers only through the District Selection Committee (DSC) test. He also urged the officials to appoint 811 education volunteers in the existing vacancies.
MLA Yendla Lakshminarayana suggested that teachers have to strive to impart moral education to students besides providing academic knowledge. Teachers and students have to follow the ideals of Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, he said. In-Charge Collector K Harshavardhan said that backward villages in Jukkal, Banswada, Yellareddy, Pitlam and Madnur mandals were given priority while appointing teachers. Though the teachers have been facing certain problems, they are working satisfactorily in the district, he said. On the occasion, Mr Goud, Mr Lakshminarayana and officials felicitated 35 teachers who were selected for `Best Teacher’ awards in the district. DEO Srinivasachary, DIET Principal Sudarshan, Project Director Sudhakar and other officials were present.
