New Delhi/Jalandhar, January 10, 2014: Haryana Chief Minister, Bhupinder Singh Hooda has exhorted Jat Samaj to educate their children and save them from going astray. Addressing the concluding session of International Jat Intellectuals Meet in New Delhi last evening, Hooda said that there is no dearth of intellect in Jat Samaj, but it did not get sufficient opportunities.
Praising the subject – Promoting Education and Social Awareness among people – of the Meet, Hooda said that in today’s world, only that samaj, state or country will lead, which is ahead in education. He said that as compared to earlier times, it is not so difficult to open an educational institutions today. Our elders understood the importance of education. In the Panchayat of Jat Samaj in 1910, a decision was taken to open school for children and accordingly Jat Anglo-Sanskrit High School was established. My grandfather Chaudhary Matu Ram was one of its founders. Later, my father Chaudhary Ranbir Singh carried on the work and spread schools in villages.
Hooda said, “Today I have got the opportunity to serve the people. I am trying to make Haryana a hub of education.” He added on one hand, educational infrastructure is being provided and on the other hand, emphasis is being laid on improving the quality of education. New educational institutions and universities are coming up. A Women University has been set up at Khanpur and a Women Medical College has also been opened. Chhotu Ram Engineering College of Murthal has been made University. A Defence University has been set up in the State and Central University has started functioning in district Mahendergarh. Four new Medical Colleges are also coming up in the State, out of which two have started functioning. In Rajiv Gandhi Education City, prestigious institutions are being set up. 25 per cent seats have been reserved for Haryana students. I have a dream that Haryana should become an education hub of international level and I believe that it will happen in next 5-7 years.
Hooda said that members of Jat Samaj are justice loving and patriots, always ready to sacrifice for the country. This Samaj has given a number of personalities like Ch. Chhotu Ram, Ch. Charan Singh, Ch. Ranbir Singh and Dr Swarup Singh. “I am proud that I was born in a Jat family”, he said.
On this occasion, Hooda also released a book written on the life of Ch. Harnand Rai, father of H.S. Chahal, Vice Chancellor of MD University. Hooda also announced financial assistance of Rs 5 lakh for the Jat Mahasabha. //Haryana news, Haryana current news, Haryana news live, Haryana breaking news, Haryana headlines, Haryana latest news, india news,
