Manipur and Nagaland would jointly host a conclave of all the education ministers of the northeast states to comprehend the challenges in the education sector.
The decision to host the proposed conclave was arrived at a meeting during a meeting between Manipur education minister Dr Th Radheshyam and Nagaland Nagaland minister of higher and technical education Temjen Imna Along in Kohima on Monday.
They also discussed the managerial and administrative challenges of the Sainik Schools of the country, particularly in the north east states. Radheshyam had earlier met Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio initiating his campaign for pressing the Union defence ministry to own up the responsibility of running the Sainik schools.
During the meeting with Imna Along, Radheshyam said they also discussed the managerial and administrative challenges of the Sainik schools of the country, particularly in the north east states. 
Dr Radheshyam said that during the meeting with Nagaland chief minister Neiphiu Rio, he highlighted the grievous financial difficulties of the small states in providing adequate infrastructure for the Sainik schools and the scholarship for the cadets. He also met education advisor of Nagaland KT Sukhalu.
Claiming that his proposal received appreciation from Rio, Radheshyam said the chief minister further assured to extend all possible help to organise a conclave of all the education ministers of the north east states to understand the social, political and financial challenges in running educational institutions in the region.
The education minister said Rio assured that he would write personal letters to all the chief ministers so that the central leadership can be collectively apprised of the prevailing unrest and the geographical terrains, which cannot be overcome in managing the most important faculty of education.
Radheshyam claimed that Rio also endorsed his suggestion to seek a one-time grant for the construction of the basic infrastructure, including, administrative blocks, dormitory for cadets and quarters for the administrative and academic staff of the Sainik schools.
“All the Sainik schools in the north east states face financial problems and the Union ministry of defence should own up the responsibility of the existing Sainik schools, which is about 30 in number,” he quoted Rio.
