By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, Aug 1 - �Society cannot progress if a section of its people is left behind,� observed Governor PB Acharya in an interactive programme with a delegation of tea tribe organisations at the Raj Bhawan here last evening.

The Governor met a delegation of 25 members and discussed many vital issues for the welfare of the tea garden community in Assam. He assured the delegation that he would talk to the government for setting up one model school covering every five tea gardens.

With a view to bolstering education-driven development of the tea community, BJP Assam Pradesh vice president Siba Prasad Bodra requested the Governor to introduce reservation for the students belonging to tea tribe community at the Gauhati University and other universities of Assam in line with the Dibrugarh University.

On how to address the problem of education, the Governor said that education is the only tool to empowerment and stressed the need for building more schools and colleges in the tea garden areas.

Asserting that skill-based education should take over conventional education, Acharya, while sympathising with the tea tribe organisations, said that being the Chancellor of the universities of the State, he would definitely do the needful for introduction of reservation for the tea tribes.

The Governor also commented that all the universities in Assam should act on the research works carried out on the tea gardens or the tea gardeners so that, based on the findings, follow-up actions for the development of the tea tribes could be taken.

Acharya also asked the Commissioner of Assam Tea Employees� Welfare Board to check the lower wage structure for the tea garden labourers working in the Barak Valley and stressed having equal wages all over the State.

Highlighting Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s schemes like �Beti Bachao Beti Padhao� and �Jan Dhan Yojana�, the Governor said that to address the socio-economic concerns of the tea garden labourer community at large, the benefits of the schemes should be fully utilised at the grassroots level.

Member of Parliament from Jorhat, Kamakhya Prasad Tasa who was also present at the meeting, assured the tea tribe organisations that all possible steps would be taken for the uplift of the tea labourers.

The Governor also urged the media to highlight the issues confronting the tea garden labourer community so that their problems could be addressed accordingly.
