LUCKNOW: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday asserted that the National Education Policy is a part of the long-drawn exercise to give India its traditional identity and establish it as a ‘vishwa guru’ (world leader).
Addressing an event after distributing appointment letters to 1,395 lecturers and assistant teachers in government intermediate colleges, Yogi said that it was the responsibility of educational and training institutes to prepare themselves accordingly.
‘Unemployment rate down from 19% to 2% in UP’
India has the potential to emerge as a centre of education for the world,” the CM said, underscoring the need for establishing communication between educational institutes and industry. “Teachers will have to realise their responsibilities towards children, their parents and even the society,” the CM said. “They need to have the same sentiments towards the school as they have towards their homes and religious places,” the CM said.
“Teachers need to strive for excellence instead of pulling strings to get rewarded. If you are incapable and still get rewarded, people will laugh at you,” he said.
He also warned the newly-recruited candidates to not to fall in the trap of transfer posting. He also said that the perception of Uttar Pradesh has changed entirely and it is being looked up to all over the world.
Training guns at the previous governments for corruption, discrimination and nepotism, Yogi said, “All the characters of ‘the Mahabharat’ – ‘chacha, mama, bhatija’ – fanned out to carry out extortion in the name of recruitments.”
Yogi said that the transparency in recruitments through the UPPSC and recruitment boards helped the youths get jobs of their choice. “No one can complain of nepotism, casteism and corruption in recruitments,” he said, adding that despite having eligibility and ability, youths were unable to clear competitive examinations under the previous governments due to corruption. “In UP, the unemployment rate has dropped from 19% to just over 2%. There is still scope for improvement,” he said.
