Imphal, June 3: A college is soon coming up in Sugnu area, one of the ‘Modern Colleges’ approved by the government of India from other 376 colleges. Its construction work will begin soon, said K Ranjit MLA of Sugnu.
K Ranjit declared it to the people during an award distribution function of meritorious students who scored high marks in the matric and twelfth exams of this year at a function held at Ching Tam Community Hall, Sugnu. He said that recently the Education Minister, DC Thoubal, Commissioner Education and other official have inspected the site for the modern college and has been approved.
He added that the necessary documents and other related report for the college have been sent to the Union Human Resource Ministry April last.
The college will have different streams. Students of Sugnu will not need to go to Imphal for higher studies. With proper infrastructure that will come up with the college, even students from Imphal will come to study in Sugnu. After a few years Sugnu will become an educational hub, K Ranjit said.
The MLA recalled his father who encouraged him for education. He elaborated his time of hardship that he used to face while going to school when Serou Bridge was not properly constructed.
He encouraged those students who scored first division in exams and asked to score more grades in coming exam.
N Mangi MPS, SDPO Sugunu, who was also present in the function, said that such meritorious award is to find out the hidden talents among the students.
What is lacking in the area is proper government scholls, N Mangi added. We need to bring a proper change in the present trend of education, he said.
The meritorious award distribution function was organised by Development committee Sugunu with assistance from MLA K Ranjit in memory of his father Kangujam Mohori Singh.
