Patna: Like many of his predecessors, the newly-appointed Governor of Bihar Fagu Chauhan, during a meeting of the Bihar Vice Chancellors, educationists, and senior bureaucrats at the Raj Bhawan in Patna on Wednesday, declared his resolve to improve education in the state saying bringing qualitative change in the system was his number one priority.
The Governor directed the Vice Chancellors to implement rapid changes in the universities and colleges to improve the standard of education in Bihar.
Like most 'high-level' government meetings in the state, officials heavily relied on PowerPoint presentations to convince the Governor what plans were being implemented and what steps were being taken to raise the standard of education in all state universities.
"I will not tolerate any dilly-dallying in our effort to attain the goal of improving education standard in Bihar. We all should be focused on achieving this goal and any effort to thwart this attempt will have serious consequences," he said.
Among other advices given by Mr. Chauhan were regularization of the academic session at all universities, regular holding of classes, appointments of lecturers and professors to fill in all vacant posts, holding of exams on time and declaration of their results in a reasonable amount of time.
