While addressing the gathering the Chief Minister asked the students to search for a better name of Buriakhop. The student whose name is the best and is selected will be awarded a cash prize of Rs. 50,000/-, the Chief Minister declared. Further, he said that the names of the places have to be correctly spelt and pronounced. The names of many places have been changed in due course of time. Nobody has the right to change the name of a place. A permission of the government has to be obtained and a notification has to be taken out by the government to change the name of a place, the Chief Minister said. The Chief Minister also gave certain instances where the names of the places have been changed without the notice of the government and directed the Secretary, Land Revenue Department to look into the matter seriously and see that the names of places of the state are correctly named.
Talking on the Right to Education Act which has been implemented throughout the country the Chief Minister said that the act does not permit corporal punishment to the students and the students cannot be failed up to tenth standard. This does not mean that the students are now free from their responsibility towards their education. The act instead has increased the responsibility of the students towards their education, the Chief Minister said. In this context the Chief Minister also talked about the Education Family and the collective responsibility of citizens from all walks of life for the development of education.
With regard to demand on tourism sector the Chief Minister said that tourism sector is on the high priority list of the government because it is high time that the people adopt themselves to a new profession. New concept on tourism related activities is always welcome and if the people seriously think in this line and go for it with dedication then the government will sanction all the demands on this sector after studying the feasibility of the projects.
During the day long tour the Chief Minister also met the people at Timburbung, Chyakhung and Chumbung.
