The wait is over! This state got government engineering college for the first time after independence

Meghalaya was a part of Assam before it became a full state. Now it has got the first government engineering college after almost 5 decades. The name of this college is 'Shillong Government College of Engineering'.

Meghalaya, located in the Northeast, got its first government engineering college after independence. Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma inaugurated the state's first government engineering college 'Shillong Government College of Engineering'. This project was started by Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA). A total of Rs 26 crore has been spent in preparing the engineering college. It has been constructed in Mawlai area adjacent to Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya. After becoming an engineering college, now students will not have to study far away.

Even though a prestigious institute like IIT Guwahati is present in the northeastern states of India. But when it comes to any other best government college, then the number is very less. In such a situation, it is believed that the Shillong Engineering College will improve the situation in this direction.

Actually, 'Shillong Government College of Engineering' is the first government engineering college of Meghalaya because Meghalaya became a full state on January 21, 1972. Earlier it used to be a part of Assam and Assam already had 'Assam Engineering College', which was established in 1955. In such a situation, after about 50 years, this state has got its first engineering college.

Interacted with more than 90 thousand youth

Chief Minister Sangma said in his address that his government's focus has been on the youth for the last five years. Keeping this in mind, many programs have been started by the government. He said that his government has conducted a survey and interacted with more than 90,000 youth. After this, a road map has been prepared to give direction to their potential. He further informed that various programs related to entrepreneurship, sports and music being started by the government have been prepared from such studies.

Youth important in taking the state forward

The Chief Minister said, 'Youth is our capital and power with us. If we harness their potential properly, we can ensure that Meghalaya emerges as one of the best states in the country. Youth will play an important role in taking forward the future of our state.

He said, 'If we plan to increase education at the age of 20 years, we will not be able to get the best, therefore, the government has started programs that ensure proper nutrition and early education of the child in a systematic way. We do.'
