GUWAHATI, March 5 - Considering the vast human resources available in Assam, the government is drawing a roadmap for judiciously using science and technology as force multiplier for human resource development in the State, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said today.

Speaking at the State level function of National Science Day 2019 here, Sonowal said that for prudent utilisation of the State�s verdant human resources, an optimum use of technological solutions can go a long way in achieving the desired results.

�Science gives us light and in search of light we should all seek the knowledge of science,� he said.

Referring to the theme of this year�s Science Day which is �Science for people and people for science�, Sonowal stressed the need for taking science nearer to the people.

The Chief Minister said that since assuming office, his government has taken several steps for popularising science. The government has introduced science stream in several government institutions for enabling students to pursue science in their higher secondary level, he said.

Sonowal said the State government considers it to be its fundamental duty to popularise science and find out solutions to various problems using science and technology.

Science can play an important role in the government�s pursuit of skill development, he added.

�Science and technology combined with skill-based training can help the State in churning its human resources and catapulting the growth of Assam,� he said.

Sonowal said that for promotion of science and technology, the State has been divided into five zones and representatives from each zone will be sent to exposure tours and the entire cost will be borne by the government.

On the occasion, the Chief Minister presented the �Life Time Award� to noted climate scientist Dr Bhupendra Nath Goswami for his discovery of the �Indian Ocean Dipole Mode�.

The �Young Scientist Award� was presented to Dr Manashita Borah, Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Tezpur University, who was chosen for her contribution in the field of biomedical implementation and automated waste water treatment.

The CSIR-North East Institute of Science and Technology (formerly RRL-Jorhat) was given the award of the �Best Scientific Organisation� for promotion of science and technology for the benefit of society.

Chief Secretary Alok Kumar and Director of Assam Science Technology and Environment Council (ASTEC), Dr Arup Kumar Misra, also spoke on the occasion.
