GUWAHATI, June 20 - Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma today said the alliance partners of the State Government would reach out to all the 126 MLAs, seeking their support for NDA�s presidential candidate Ram Nath Kovind.

Addressing reporters here along with AGP leader and State cabinet minister Keshab Mahanta and BPF MP Biswajit Daimary, Sarma said the alliance partners are united in their support for Kovind.

�Not only Kovind is a Dalit leader, representing a backward segment of the society, but he also has a distinguished political career. We will also reach out to MLAs outside the ruling alliance, requesting their support so that maximum votes from Assam go in his favour,� he added.

Both Mahanta and Daimary also declared their parties� stand on this issue.

�On June 22, the alliance members will sign the nomination, which will be filed on June 23,� he further added.

Also commenting on the State Government�s decision to appoint teachers from English medium background in the model schools, Sarma said the government has streamlined the process so that candidates educated in Assamese medium would teach in the Assamese medium schools. �Similarly, for Bodo, Hindi and Bengali mediums schools, we will appoint teachers who studied one of these languages as his/her MIL subject,� he added. The State government would recruit 10,000 teachers for the Assamese medium schools from June 1 on contractual basis. Another 10,000 permanent teachers would be appointed after 3 months, Sarma said.
