Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar announced on Sunday that skill development will be made a mandatory subject for students in grades 9 to 12 so that the state’s youth can become self-sufficient in all areas. Khattar stated that his government is working tirelessly to provide the state’s students with high-quality, employable educational opportunities. He was speaking at the Haryana School Education Board’s Bhiwani campus. According to the chief minister, skilled universities are essential in today’s world, and the state government has established Haryana’s first such university in Palwal. He went on to say that the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 would usher in radical changes.
According to an official statement, “the main goal of this policy, along with education and employment, is to make the students cultured and self-reliant so that they can make significant contributions in making India a global leader again.” He stated that, in addition to technical education, artificial intelligence is being emphasized to make education more industry-oriented. “The subject of skill development will be mandatory from grades 9 to 12 so that the state’s youth are self-sufficient in all aspects,” Khattar said.
After that, the chief minister opened astronomy labs at the Government Model Sanskriti Senior Secondary School and the Government Girls Senior Secondary School in Bhiwani. He interacted with students after inaugurating the labs. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, according to Khattar, has emphasized instilling a scientific mindset in children. “In most cases, children in government schools are restricted to the general curriculum. Children from the poorest of families will be able to learn about the mysteries of the universe thanks to the establishment of these labs “he stated
Later, while speaking to reporters at the 38th State Level Livestock Exhibition in this city, he reiterated that the Centre was making every effort to evacuate Indians trapped in the conflict-torn Ukraine. According to him, the Haryana government is in constant contact with the Union Ministry of External Affairs to bring back residents of the state from Ukraine, including students.
Khattar appealed to farmers to reduce their use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides while speaking at the livestock exhibition, where he also took a camel ride and said his government would soon hold a conference on zero-budget farming.
Zero-budget Natural farming lowers agricultural costs by relying on traditional field-based technologies that improve soil health. Farmers’ expenses can be reduced by connecting the agricultural sector to scientific and new technology, according to Khattar. “Apart from that, we can fertilize the land by using dung manure, cow urine, and so on. The government will launch a public awareness campaign to promote the concept of zero-budget farming “Added he. Many loans and grant schemes, he said, were being run to encourage allied agriculture businesses such as beekeeping, dairy, mushroom production, and so on, to boost farmers’ income.
