“For building a society based on equality where all people are empowered to lead a life of dignity and to meet modern day challenges like corruption and increasing crimes, the education system must produce citizens with high moral values and integrity.” Sonowal said.

Calling upon the teachers to take their duty as a service to the society and not as a mere job, Sonowal said that teachers must strive towards realising their potential to become the role models for the society and establish Assam as one of the best of the country.
