NAGAON, July 29: Asom Chatra Parishad and Asom Yuva Parishad, the two brother organisations of Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) felicitated the meritorious students who cleared HSLC as well as HS Final Examination this year with flying colours from the district here at a function held at Nagaon district library auditorium on Thursday.
The felicitation programme was chaired by Moni Madhab Mahanta, the district president of Asom Gana Parishad. Noted academician and former vice chancellor of Mahapurush Srimanta Sankardev Vishwavidyalaya, Dr Hitesh Deka and state Health minister Keshab Mahanta graced the occasion as guests.
While addressing the occasion, Dr Deka insisted on social responsibility of the students instead of their records of academic achievements.
Referring to the top 10 record in examination, Dr Deka said that the concept of such ‘stand’ or ‘rank holder in top-10’ is a mere error in the system.
“I never seek such position holders who neglect their ailing parents later at their old-age and abandon on the street after getting a nice job,” Dr Deka said adding further that he prefers such human resources who would take care of their respective parents later at the crucial hours of their lives although he or she could carry only the second or third division in HS Final or HSLC Examination.
The state health minister Keshab Mahanta also spoke on the occasion and urged the student’s fraternity to concentrate themselves in their aims of life. He said that students should learn to love themselves first to attain their respective goals and for that they must take the adequate decision in the very beginning.
Former AGP minister and party’s senior leader of the district Girindra Kr Boruah, president of Asom Yuva Parishad Jitu Borgohain, president of Asom Chatra Parishad Trinoyan Boruah were also present in the felicitation programme and spoke on the occasion. The programme was anchored by the president and secretary of the district unit of Asom Yuva Parishad respectively Dipujjal Rajkhowa and Kashyap Phukan.
