Elaborating on the real meaning of quality education, Naresh points out that the term implies the type of education which would enable a student to become ideal citizens who can contribute to the development and peaceful existence of the state. The President also disclosed that the Golden Jubilee celebration next year will be a year-long event with the celebration committee to be comprised of former office bearers of the Union, and will launch a campaign covering the North East India for unifying the different communities.
