Imphal: Manipur education minister Sorokhaibam Rajen says he will resign from his ministreship if he fails to discharge his duty to develop government educational institutions.
He made the remark during his felicitation function held at Manipur college, here on Saturday.
Rajen said proper infrastructure and proper administration by the head of the educational institutions are needed to bring development in government schools and colleges.
“If government institutes are not good, why students are rushing at Churachachand Higher secondary school, Tamphasana Girls Higher Secondary School and Dhanamanjuri University including Ghanapriya women’s colleges for admission”, Rajen said.
Instead of defaming the government institutes one should point out the problem so that government would try to solve the problems in the government institutes.
If proper infrastructure and respective institute heads take tresponsibility government institutes will be far better than private institutes, he said.

The society should respect teachers and teachers should also share their ideas to the authority so that government could bring development in education sector, Rajen said.
