Union Education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal said he would consider setting up a professional college for horticulture and National Institute of Technical Teachers Training and Research (NITTTR) in Nagaland. 

Conveying this to a PDA delegation that called on him in New Delhi on Wednesday, Pokhriyal congratulated the State for successful implementation of Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA), besides assuring his full cooperation on the issues raised by the delegation. 

He also assured of looking at the guidelines for mountain and difficult States for more effective implementation of RUSA, even as he called up DoNER minister Dr Jitendra Singh in the presence of the delegation and requested him to convene a meeting with the State to discuss the problems being faced by the North-eastern States in the field of education.

Calling on the Union education minister at his official residence in New Delhi’s 27 Safdarjung Road, the delegation congratulated him for the new National Educational Policy and appraised him on the activities of the State’s higher education & technical department. 

The delegation also thanked Pokhriyal for considering Central schemes in the State under RUSA 2.0 and for reviving RUSA 3.0 with more strength, which would be a boon for Nagaland in particular and the North-eastern States in general. 

The team requested Pokhriyal to set up professional college for horticulture under the ongoing RUSA 2.0 and NITTTER in the State, besides establishing Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) this year as mandated by Parliament.

Highlighting the difficulties faced by Nagaland and other North-eastern States, the members of the delegation also requested the Union minister to consider the States’ mountain terrain in implementing the schemes. 

Led by higher education & tribal affairs minister and State BJP president Temjen Imn Along, the delegation comprised housing & mech minister Tongpang Ozukum, IT&C, science & technology and NRE adviser Mmhonlumo Kikon, horticulture & border affair adviser Mhathung Yanthan and technical education & election adviser Medo Yokha. This was stated in a press release by Kuolie Mere, PRO of Nagaland, New Delhi.
