Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig (Retd) BD Mishra on Friday called upon the students of North East Regional Institute of Science and Technology (NERIST) to work towards uplifting the society.

Governor BD Mishra, who presided over the convocation of the Deemed University at Nirjuli congratulated the students who were awarded degrees and gold medals, and said that “now it is time that they pay back to the society.”

Reminding the passing out students of their fundamental duties as enshrined in the Constitution, the governor advised them to “make sacrifices for higher good; that is, for the society and the nation.”

Addressing the continuing students, the governor advised them to “set goals, work hard and take active part in games, sports and extracurricular activities.” He exhorted them to be self-motivated and mission-oriented.

Governor Mishra called upon the faculty members to “promote the teaching-learning process within as also beyond the classroom schedules.” He asked them to be “a coach, friend, philosopher and guide for their students.”

The NERIST being an important technical institution of the Northeast region, the governor said, “The benchmark it attains must be a technical touchtone for the future progress of the region. Excellent administrative management, good teaching, quality education, hi-tech research and concept papers must be hallmarks of NERIST.”

He also advised the institute to concentrate on “the local needs-oriented study programmes,” such as all-weather roads, designing suitable drainage systems, earthquake resistant houses and buildings, technical expertise in arresting erosions, especially on the slopes near roadsides, multi-cropping methods, zero water wastage irrigation, and water harvesting.

The Governor, who is the president of the NERIST Society, stressed on having “a complete academic atmosphere with hundred percent class attendances, timely cent percent admission, on-time examination, on-time result declaration, fearless campus environment, and maintaining the sanctity of the hostels by creating disciplined study atmosphere.”
