The Governor of Arunachal Pradesh Brig. (Dr.) B.D. Mishra (Retd.) interacted with the students of Higher Educational Classes on 17th September 2019 at Raj Bhavan, Itanagar. The Governor spoke about the duties and responsibilities of the students. He also shared the background of Article 35A and Article 370, which have been abrogated.
The Governor said that the students of the day are the future leaders, a generation which will be leading the society and State. He exhorted them to make themselves of indispensable merit for the Nation. Prepare yourself for your future responsibilities, as the Nation looks upon you to lead, the Governor advised.
The Governor cautioned the students against three aspects, i.e. terrorism & violence, degradation of environment and population explosion. He advised them to fight against these three challenges tooth & nail.
While emphasizing that the students must imbibe nationalism, honesty, abide by rule of law and work hard to achieve their goals. The Governor impressed upon them to change their mindset of job seekers and become job providers by becoming entrepreneurs and self employed.
Sharing the history of Kashmir from 1819, when Maharaja Ranjit Singh captured the region to the creation of Article 370 and Article 35A, the Governor said that the provisions under Article 35A and Article 370 were never beneficial for the people of Jammu and Kashmir and nor in the National interest. He said that the common people of J&K never benefited from it.
Welcoming the abrogation of these Articles, the Governor said that these provisions aided anti national activities, segregated people of J&K and resulted in violence in the State.
Negating the apprehension of the students about the continuance of Article 371H and Bengal Eastern Frontier Regulation, 1873, the Governor pointed out that the North Eastern Region has the full attention of the Central Government, where Arunachal Pradesh is the most favourite State. For the welfare of the State and respecting the sentiment of the people, the Central Government will never initiate any action, which will directly or indirectly harm the interest of the people of North East, the Governor said.
The students from Rajiv Gandhi University, Rono Hills, Doimukh, North eastern Regional Institute of science & Technology, Nirjuli, National Institute of Technology, Arunachal Pradesh, Dera Natung Government College, Itanagar and Bini Yanga Govt. Women’s College, Lekhi enthusiastically participated in the seventh episode of Governor’s students interaction.
