New Delhi. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said that the government believes in increasing the role of women in the armed forces and several steps have been taken in this direction. These include paving the way for girls’ enrollment in Sainik Schools and granting permanent commission to women officers. He expressed confidence that the decision to set up new Sainik Schools would encourage girls to realize their dreams of serving the nation.
Rajnath Singh on Saturday presided over a webinar on Sainik Schools. During this, he said, setting up of 100 new Sainik Vidyalayas will give an opportunity to girls to join the armed forces and contribute to national security.
The Defense Minister termed the announcement of expansion of Sainik Vidyalayas as one of the many important decisions of the government in the last six-seven years to improve the quality of basic education of children and ensure the overall development of the country.
He expressed hope that the integration of defense and education in Sainik Schools would play an important role in nation building in the times to come. He said that while a soldier is a symbol of unity, discipline and loyalty, the school is the center of education. On this basis, Sainik Schools are playing an important role in making children capable citizens.
Singh further said that the government is focusing on providing quality education to the youth of the country, as it lays a strong foundation for the all-round development of the society.
He said, quality education is the cornerstone of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations. There are many other goals under quality education. We have a strong political commitment to achieving these goals. Many schemes like Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan are being implemented. Establishment of 100 new Sainik Schools is another important step in this direction.
Defense Minister Singh described education as an important sector, which plays a role in the development of all other sectors. He urged the private sector to come together with the government to achieve the vision of self-reliance and ensure the holistic development of the children.
The Defense Minister said, today our country is moving fast on the path of self-reliance in every field. It is scaling new heights in sectors such as defence, health, communication, industry and transport due to the synergy between the public and private sectors. There is a need for a revolution in the field of education and all round development of the children. This is possible only under strong partnerships between defence, academia and the private sector. This webinar is a foundation of this partnership.
He urged the private sector to join the government’s initiative to expand Sainik Schools. (IANS)
