Kohima: Stressing on the need for making a bridge to bring the nation together by using Hindi, Nagaland governor PB Acharya called on the teachers of the language in the state to promote and propagate Hindi as a common medium for communication.
Delivering his key-note address at the silver jubilee celebrations of the All Nagaland Hindi Teachers Union (ANHTU) at Indira Gandhi Stadium in Kohima on Thursday, Governor Acharya said that education was the way forward to progress and appreciated the union’s efforts to motivate students to excel in Hindi learning.
“The ultimate aim of education was to empower the people with knowledge so as to strengthen society and the nation,” he said, adding: “Teachers must play an important role in nation building.”
The governor added that the voice of teacher unions was a vital part of the current debate on education and their grievances needed to be understood so a better learning environment for students can be created.
“The unions represent a collective body primarily composed of government teachers which attempt to express their grievances or raise demands towards the government,” Acharya added.
