Terrorism affects education in NE: Sibal

Union Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal said that around 16 million children do not attend schools in the country.  Addressing the convocation ceremony of Tezpur Central University on Friday, he said that the government has taken all possible steps to make them literate within this decade. Assam Governor J B Patnaik said the institution has attempted to strike a balance between global expansion of knowledge and national and regional aspirations. Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi who attended the function urged the students to work to change the society. The Governor presented degrees and diplomas to 1050 students of the university besides awarding doctorate degrees to 50 students.
