Stating that any nation will be considered a rich one only with abundant human resources, Finance Minister Etala Rajender today exhorted the students of cost accountancy and others to focus on skills and standards as mere getting marks is not enough to face future challenges and get jobs or employment to settle in life.
Participating in a seminar of Cost Accountants here, Rajender said that students should not get carried away with marks list and getting more marks as they are ought to shift their focus on having thorough knowledge, standards and skills to get employment opportunities for sustainable development. The government considers that every rupee spent on education as an investment and get returns in terms of moulding them as excellent students to suit the industry and business needs. The TRS Government is giving top priority to provide quality education to the students and plans are on to roll them out with skills and job enabling training classes.
He said that during YSR’s regime, the TRS sought focus on Telangana education standards and now our government has allotted more budget and introduced English medium at all levels and began 250 residential schools. ‘We have plans to focus on standards to teach the poor and the rich avoiding difference. Our efforts are on to remove the scar on education sector that it can be bought in the market’ he said adding that only education could transform Telangana onto the world map. Cost accountancy students who associate with rich and business people should see that the latter pay taxes promptly.
‘Only education with standards and skills will flourish our youth and in turn the nation progresses’ he averred. He also said that there is a need for increase in the number of universities rather than police stations. The minister appreciated that Tirupathi, son of a mining labour, has performed well. Noted Educationist Chukka Ramaiah also spoke on the occasion.(NSS)
