Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma visited Sainik School in Goalpara on Friday during which he inaugurated a 350-seating capacity amphitheater at the premises of the educational institution.
The chief minister also took stock of the infrastructural and other needs of the educational institute.
Speaking at the event, Himanta Biswa Sarma said that Assam is now on the path towards becoming one of the most progressive states on all fronts and that in the last 18 months, the State has been able to achieve extraordinary successes in multiple fronts.
CM Sarma added that Sainik School Goalpara should not remain disconnected from the wave of growth and progress a new and resurgent Assam is offering.
Citing the example of Lieutenant General Rana Pratap Kalita, the current General Officer Commanding-In-Chief of the Indian Army's Eastern Command, and an alumnus of Sainik School Goalpara, CM Sarma said, "The educational institution's current crop of students should also work hard so that they too can get admitted to National Defence Academy and Indian Military Academy."
He appealed to the students to never compromise with their aims and ambitions and remain committed towards fulfilling them, irrespective of the hurdles that might come their way.
The Chief Minister assured of a 5-year roadmap for the school so that it can be transformed into one of the top-10 educational institutions in the country.
