GUWAHATI: Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday remotely inaugurated nearly 1,000 'Model Anganwadi Centres' located across the State at an official central ceremony held at the RB Higher Secondary School playground under the Palasbari Assembly constituency.

Speaking at the event, the Chief Minister stated that by 2026, he aims to have a total of 15,000 Model Anganwadi Centres in the State. He said that these Model Anganwadi Centres would fulfil the hopes and aspirations of the parents from the remotest parts of the State. "Anganwadis are centres where the physical and mental foundations of a child are built. It prepares children for their journey towards the higher education system," the Chief Minister said, adding: "It is very important that there is proper infrastructure in place to take forward the system of Anganwadi in the State. It is with this in mind that we started the project of constructing Model Anganwadi Centres across the State. I appeal to all parents to enrol their eligible wards in these model centres."

Sarma further said that constructing an Anganwadi centre should be considered as important as constructing a new medical or engineering college. It is from these Anganwadi centres that doctors and engineers of tomorrow will emerge, he added.

The Chief Minister today also launched the 'Adopt an Anganwadi' portal, aimed at providing philanthropists, non-governmental organizations and citizens with a platform through which they can contribute towards the welfare of the society by adopting full or partial expenses of an Anganwadi centre. This voluntary measure, Sarma said, would provide the participants with a sense of moral satisfaction.

Earlier in the day, the Chief Minister inaugurated a Model Anganwadi Centre at Kaitasidhi (A) under Chayani Barduar ICDS Project at Palasbari, a press release said.
