No Government Could Provide Jobs To Everybody, Says Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu

Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu has suggested that only 50 per cent of the time should be spent in classrooms, while the remaining 50 per cent should be spent outside.

No government could provide jobs to everybody, says Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu.

In order to reflect the tradition of quest for knowledge, the Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu has recently said the country's education system needs to be reoriented.

The present school education system should be completely revamped, Venkaiah Naidu said. The Vice President was speaking at the annual day function of Jubilee Hills Public School.

"The school curriculum should be oriented to make students think rationally, independently and express cogently," he added.

Meanwhile, highlighting the great Indian tradition of 'Guru Shishya Parampara,' he said teachers and students used to live together and engage in a constant dialogue.

Spend 50 per cent time in classroom:

Naidu stressed on technology and tradition going together. He suggested that only 50 per cent of the time should be spent in classrooms with the remaining 50 per cent to be spent outside.

Moreover, Venkaiah Naidu while addressing the students said that no government could provide jobs to everybody.

"People who have ruled us (the British), ruined us, looted us, cheated us, and cheated our minds also." This has resulted in an inferiority complex in the country that those things English are great and the things Indian are inferior, Naidu said.

With WTO rules in force, there was a lot of competition in the era of globalisation. Venkaiah Naidu said the Indian manufacturing sector is not able to withstand competition effectively for a variety of reasons. Many were not able to invest and take up manufacturing as wealth was concentrated in the hands of a few, the vice president said.

The priority of the governments at the centre and states should be to focus more on manufacturing, he added.
