Nagaland BJP president Temjen Imna Along Longkumer today praised Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma for his efforts to make Meghalaya a hub of education for the North East.
“He is doing very well and he is facilitating Meghalaya to be a hub of education in many ways that is why we are sending thousands of students for higher education in Shillong,” Longkumer told reporters today.
Stating that any system will have some problems, Longkumer said that with the National Education Policy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made a visionary plan for holistic development of education “by preserving our Indianness and building education that will help each aspirant to do well in every field and achieve educational dream.”
Longkumer said that NEHU has been a patron of many universities and institutes of higher education of the North East.
“Everyone looks up to NEHU and to the good institutes that are here in Shillong. They are doing great,” he added.
On the move by BJP in Meghalaya to pull out of the MDA government, Longkumer declined to make any comment.
“I will not make comments on the issue of party and politics of Meghalaya because I have not come here for that and the party has its own stand here and the MDA might too have its own stand. I am a guest here. Happy to know that Meghalaya is a prosperous State and everybody is flourishing in Meghalaya and Nagaland,” he said.
