On Tuesday, CM Aditynath laid the foundation stones and inaugurated the 101 projects to give a boost to the technical education in the state. The inauguration was done during an event held at Indira Gandhi Pratishthan in Lucknow.
During the event CM launched the ‘Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gunvatta Sudhaar Yojnaʼ and distributed INR 200 crore among the government aided institutions and colleges affiliated to Dr APJ Abdul Kalam technical university.
Two Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) were also signed during the event: one between Madan Mohan Malviya Technical University and a Japanese university for student exchange program and another for between Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur and Harcourt Butler Technical University (HBTU), Kanpur for installing the Design Innovation Centre.
A portal named 'Best Practices Portal' was also launched by the CM which will have the database of the published researched papers, books, seminars, workshops and projects to improve technical education.
During the event Adityanath also spoke about the importance of the technology for the development.
“A good technology is the one which is made by taking common people into consideration. Solid waste management is the biggest challenge in rural India. There are places in the state where we cannot differentiate between sewage and drainage, and things like these are creating swine flu and other water-borne diseases. People in the technical sector should think about this,” he said.
