Silchar, Oct 30: The iugural session of a two-day tiol semir was held on Monday at Silchar. “Gurucharan College deserves to be an autonomous educatiol institute. I have seen the growth of this college as a premier educatiol institute that has been imparting education to innumerable students. The authorities concerned should immediately apply for this. Gurucharan College has earned the distinction of being an illumited educatiol institute. I do not think there would be any obstacle if the college also applies for post graduation courses. Gurucharan College deserves the status of being called a ‘Post Graduate College. I urge upon the Registrar and the Vice-Chancellor of Assam University to look into the matter,” said Prof M K Choudhury, former Vice-Chancellor of Tezpur University, and present advisor to the Government of Assam, Education Department, while addressing the iugural session of the two-day tiol semir organized by the Department of Botany, Gurucharan College, in collaboration with ‘The Greens’, a social welfare organization (NGO), at the College auditorium today.
The semir on ‘Bio resources utilization: Special emphasis on Ethic Population of Northeast India’ will conclude on November 1. In his presidential address, Dr Bibash Deb, principal of the college and patron of the semir said, “I am overwhelmed. This semir should be a revelation and landmark for the department of Botany. It is incredible that this college could organize three tiol semirs in a year. The bio resources and micro organisms in the flora and fau of this region need to be conservated. However, conservation is not tough job but we have to conserve it at any level, be it genetic level.” The iugural session was graced by the presence of Dr S Lakshman, IAS, Deputy Commissioner of Cachar, MP Sushmita Dev and other dignitaries.
