Manipur education minister Dr Th Radheshyam urged Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio to bring Education ministers of all North-eastern States together and collectively work out a modality to impress upon Union Minister of Defence minister to extend financial assistance to sainik schools of the region.

Calling on Rio at Kohima on February 8, along with former president of Old Boys’ Association of Sainik School, Imphal president Kevisa Kense and former president of Sainik School Imphal Alumni Association N Ibungouchoubi, Radheshyam also raised issues pertaining to Sainik Schools of the country, particularly in NE.

Referring to the 22nd Board of Governors of Sainik Schools recent meeting chaired by Union Minister of State for Defence Shripad Naik, during which many important issues, including management of the institutions were highlighted, Radheshyam pointed out that being small States with limited resources, the sainik schools in Assam, Nagaland, Manipur and Mizoram were facing grave difficulties in managing the schools.

While endorsing the genuine problems of Sainik schools in NE, Rio, who is an alumnus of sainik school, stressed the need for all education ministers to come together and work out a modality for making a representation to the Union Minister of Defence to give a one-time grant to develop infrastructure and own up the responsibilities of these schools.

“Union Minister of Defence should be happy to take care of the sainik schools under its ministry. I will write to all the chief ministers of the NE States to support the initiative taken up by Radheshyam,” he remarked.

Adviser School Education KT Sukalu, an alumnus of sainik school, who was present at the meeting, said there were many common issues of education in the region and the collective efforts of all education ministers would be of great value in developing educational institutions and research institutes to benefit the younger generation.
