Chandigarh, February 27– Haryana Technical Education Minister Mr. Anil Vij today said that the government has decided to set up a committee in the Department of Science and Technology to enhance student’s interest in science subjects. He said the support of the Education Department will also be taken.
This information was given by Mr. Anil Vij on the fifth-day of the ongoing budget session of Haryana Vidhan Sabha here today while replying to a question whether any proposal is under consideration with the Government to open a polytechnic institute in Bhakli village of Kosli Assembly constituency.
Mr. Vij expressed concern about the number of seats of science subject lying vacant in polytechnic and engineering colleges and said that it seems that the interest towards science is decreasing among the students of Class 12.
Mr. Anil Vij said that from now, the department will not consider opening a new technical or engineering college as the seats allocated in the private engineering colleges and government-aided colleges also remain vacant.
Mr. Vij assured the House that the government is ready to arrange special buses for engineering colleges and polytechnic institutes.
