Jamshedpur, Jan 14: Social worker Amarpreet Singh Kale on Thursday met Governor Ramesh Bais. Kale invited him to attend a proposed programme on women’s empowerment by ‘Naman’ on International Women’s Day on March 8, which Bais gladly accepted.
During the meeting, Kale discussed some important points for qualitative improvement in higher education in the state, especially in Kolhan.
He requested the Chancellor of Jharkhand to take immediate initiative for duly starting the Women’s University at Jamshedpur. Similarly, the process of appointment of lecturers and professors is also pending, while months have passed since the posts are advertised and applications are invited.
The problem of not being able to organize classes according to the routine in the Kolhan University subordinate colleges for higher education continues. There is a shortage of faculty in the women’s college for vocational courses like B.Ed, etc.
Lack of infrastructure in Kolhan University colleges and appointment of professors for qualitative improvement in education, their promotion etc. is also affecting the quality education to a great extent.
Kale also drew attention to the lack of UG and PG seats in the medical colleges of Jharkhand. He requested to take concrete steps for better higher education in Jharkhand, so that the meritorious and talented students of Jharkhand do not migrate to other states.
He also placed before the Governor the problems of basic facilities like electricity, water and health in the settlement areas. He drew Governor’s attention to pay special attention to the increased unemployment related to Corona and the neglect of local unemployed in industrial areas.
