In a first-of-its-kind initiative, Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel today launched 16 new comprehensive, interesting, inspirational and varied educational channels of ‘Vande Gujarat’, to provide access to knowledge at the remotest places in the state.
Speaking on the occasion, she said that digital technology would play a major part in disseminating knowledge in this 21st Century. Anandiben said that her government has initiated discussion with scholars and experts in diverse fields to make a success of this people-oriented initiative. The state government is committed to bring the best of the world to the state.
She said the channels would gradually cover a wide range of subjects – from primary school to the level of higher education on agriculture, dairy, education, health, women’s welfare, sports, skill development, preparing for competitive examinations and even self-employment schemes. She directed the district administration also to gear up for the project, intended for ‘sauna saath, sauna vikas’.
Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasma described the launch as historic. He said it is intended to make the citizens up-to-date in knowledge and make their mark in the global map. Gujarat is bound to develop in leaps in bounds under the leadership of Anandiben Patel to realize the dreams of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
