Teachers are architects of nation, CM promises to promote welfare

Chandigarh, September 5:  Describing them as architects of the nation’s future, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh extended his greetings to the teaching fraternity on the eve of Teacher’s Day with a promise to promote their welfare and enable a congenial atmosphere in the state for their progress.

Amarinder exhorted the teachers to do their best to shape the future generations in the mould of former President of India and great educationist late Dr S Radhakrishnan, on whose birth anniversary Teacher’s Day is celebrated every year.

The CM urged the teachers to pledge themselves to the cause of providing youngsters, especially the needy, with the necessary learning environment required to transform their destiny. Meanwhile, Education Minister Aruna Chaudhary also greeted the teaching community.

In a statement, Chaudhary said Capt Amarinder Singh would bestow the Teacher’s Day gift to the newly recruited 1,337 master-cadre teachers by giving them appointment letters during the “Ghar Ghar Rozgar” mela to be held tomorrow at the multipurpose stadium in Mohali. The CM would also give appointment letters to 50 kin of deceased employees.
