DIBRUGARH: Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that 'education has always been the medium to achieve salvation (Moksha), the ultimate aim of the people in the Indian subcontinent since times immemorial. Education and culture have ensured that the Sanatan identity of the subcontinent remained intact to date, despite numerous challenges that cropped up in front of it, time and again'.

Speaking as chief guest at the closing ceremony of the platinum jubilee celebrations of historic Hanumanbux Surajmal Kanoi College in Dibrugarh today, the Chief Minister touched upon the subject of virtues of the ancient Indian learning system, best exemplified by ancient centres of learning such as Nalanda, Takshila, Vikramashila etc.

He said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the nation is on the path towards becoming a 'New India'. He lauded India's achievements in fields as diverse as education, health, science and technology. He stated that Indian scientists and policymakers were working day and night in realising an 'Atmarirbhar Bharat'. The Chief Minister put forward the mantra of three Ds – Digitization, Decentralization and Decarbonization – in achieving the India of the Prime Minister's dream.

The Chief Minister also took stock of the ongoing repair of the Maijan embankment breach site and unveiled a statue of Bharat Ratna Dr Bhupen Hazarika, built with the corporate social responsibility fund of Brahmaputra Cracker and Polymer Limited, at the DC office premises.

He told reporters, "The Water Resources Department has taken some steps to stop the ongoing erosion at Maijan. We will take permanent measures to solve the erosion problem, but we have to stop the ongoing erosion first."

"The Water Resources Department has been working, and tea garden workers are helping them to stop the ongoing erosion at Maijan. After the receding of the water, we can take some anti-erosion measures. Now we do not know the exact dynamic of the river Brahmaputra," Sarma added.
