DHEKIAJULI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said Assam will have a vernacular medium medical college and a technical college after the assembly elections in the state in April.
Laying foundation of two medical colleges at Biswanath and Charaideo virtually from here, Modi said there was no issue in teaching medical science or imparting technical education in local languages of the respective states.
"It's my dream. It may sound too audacious. But, it is possible. And, I announce today there will be one medical college and a technical college in vernacular medium in Assam after the elections. I plan it for the entire country," he said.
"There is no dearth of talent in this country. Opportunity is what they need. It's going to be 75 years of Independence, and we are yet to take this kind of an initiative. It can undoubtedly help many talented people from the under-previleged section of the society come out with flying colours," he added.
lauding the state government for opening medical colleges in different parts of the state which can now produce at least 1600 doctors every year, Modi lamented that Assam had only six medical colleges in 70 years after Independence.
Modi also launched the Asom Mala project under Bharat Mala project in the state from here.
