GUWAHATI, June 7: Under the flagship programme, College Outreach Programme, a team of MyGov Assam visited three different colleges recently to address various grievances of the students and take their valuable suggestions in the overall functioning of the government machinery, a communiqué stated.
The team visited NH College in Barpeta, Bajali College in Pathsala and BH College in Howly. In the interactive sessions held with the students and authorities of the colleges, it was suggested that as there are a lot of unused college land available at their disposal, it could easily be developed into gardens of medicinal plants and herbs. The proposal was then forwarded to the Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, who in turn approved it.
On the occasion of World Environment Day, under the leadership of environmental activist and Brand Ambassador of Forest department, Ananda Khataniar along with Thaneswar Malakar, DC, Barpeta, saplings were planted in the BH College premises while gardens of medicinal plants and herbs were inaugurated in all the three colleges. The principals of all the three colleges were present on the occasion along with DFO, Barpeta, DFO, NK division and other forest officials. Students and teachers from BH College were also present in the event. The programme saw an active participation of students where they came to know about various Government schemes and policies, the communiqué added.
