Clean thoughts lead to clean deeds: CM

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 20 - Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has said that only clean thoughts can lead to clean deeds and students must strive hard to remove the evil of corruption from society. He was speaking at the closing ceremony of the silver jubilee celebration of Sonapur College on the city outskirts on Saturday.

Asserting that only clean thoughts and actions can help one attain true happiness in life, the Chief Minister said cleanliness and hygiene in day-to-day life are important values to be imbibed by the students as cleanliness is next to godliness, said an official press release here.

Saying that a dishonest person cannot expect a clean system, the Chief Minister urged the students to become good human beings, besides excelling in academics. �To remove corrupt practices from the system, we need good people and educational institutions have a great role in producing good, honest, dedicated citizens for the society,� he said.

Reiterating that all the government officials must work towards swift implementation of the government schemes meant for uplift of the underprivileged sections of society, Sonowal said any anomaly in the government funds would be strictly dealt with. The young generation must realise that the government is working hard for ensuring good governance and they must empower themselves with knowledge to be able to contribute meaningfully to society, he said.

Highlighting activities like double lining of railway tracks in the State as a clear indication of the government�s commitment to stimulate faster development, Sonowal expressed hope that activities like dredging the Brahmaputra and setting up 56 ports at different locations by this river in the State would bring forth massive development in the State.

Sonowal urged the underprivileged students to take full advantage of the government�s scheme of providing free admission into colleges and appealed to the college teachers to regard quality of education as their top priority.

He also urged the teachers and parents to inspire the students to take part in sports and cultural activities for achieving all-round development. He also appealed to the parents to gift a tree sapling as a birthday gift to their children so that the importance of environment and nature could be imbibed in them.

PWD Minister Parimal Suklabaidya, Dispur MLA Atul Bora and Vice Chancellor of Srimanta Sankardev University Kandarpa Kumar Deka were also present on the occasion.
