Gaya, Nov 19 (UNI) Chief Minister Nitish Kumar today said serious efforts were being made by the state government to check the exodus of students to others states in quest of technical education.
Addressing a function to mark the re-opening of an engineering college, which was closed for 22 years, Mr Kumar said it was unfortunate that thousands of students migrate to other states in quest of technical education every year as there was no sufficient number of such institutions in Bihar.
''In coming days the network of technical education will spread across the state and no student from Bihar would have to migrate to other states to fulfill their aspirations of obtaining quality education in the area,'' the Chief Minister emphasised.
''The state government is committed to improving the scenario of technical education in Bihar and four new engineering colleges with modern teaching facilities will come up soon,'' Mr Kumar said adding the state government would also encourage private sectors to set up new engineering colleges in the state.
In a separate function, organised at Biharsharif in Nalanda district, Mr Kumar described the human resources of the state as real capital of Bihar and exhorted students to excel in technical and commercial education.
Without focussing on improving education standard, it would be impossible to bring the state back on fast track of development and prosperity, he added.
