Chief Minister of the state, Virbhadra Singh said that the government is not only laying emphasis on secondary education but also higher education. The new degree colleges were opened in far-flung places so that students from rural areas also have accessibility to higher education. He also mentioned that 3,355 additional posts were created for the newly opened educational institutions.
He also said that a total number of 115 government colleges have been working in remote areas. He stated that the government is providing free transportation to the students who are pursuing secondary education.
