The Tripura Government has sponsored 150 tribal students for B.Ed. and D.El.Ed courses, in order to have better-trained teachers in the near future.
The candidates on Saturday gathered at the Pragna Bhavan Hall in Agartala for an interaction with Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb, Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath and Tribal Welfare Minister Mevar Kumar Jamatia.
Speaking at the event, Deb said all candidates were selected based on merit; adding that the new government unlike the previous government never goes by the political identity of any person.
Deb assured students that they would be sent to the best colleges with better facilities unlike what the previous government offered them.
These students are ‘Architects of Tripura’s future’. They are our brand ambassadors who shall play an instrumental role in Transforming Tripura, said the CM.
Hiralal Debbarma, Director of Tribal Welfare Department, informed that out of the total 150 students, 62 are girls and 88 are boys who are being sponsored in two colleges – one at Murshidabad and another at Bashirhaat.
Students have expressed gratitude and happiness over this move of taken up by the government.
The idea behind the interaction was to motivate the future teachers so that they are not only mentally prepared for their new course at a new place, but also return to the state and serve the state.
