SILCHAR, Jan 21 - Universities must imbibe the ideas laid down in the New Education Policy-2019, opined Governor Professor Jagdish Mukhi.

It is important for Assam University and other institutions of higher education to imbibe the ideas enlisted in the New Education Policy. The institutions of higher education must have the autonomy to innovate in matters of curriculum and form sports centres for students coming from disadvantaged communities. The universities must also take steps to address issues of inequalities in higher education and I am happy to know that Assam University Silchar extends equal opportunities to its students.�

However, they must focus on education and their careers and not only on political issues.�

Former Union minister and veteran educationist Kabindra Purakayastha urged the Vice Chancellor to ensure that instances of unrest which affects the academic affairs of the university does not hamper the students� academic careers.
