"The newly-formed Regional Council for Science and Technology Development would provide an opportunity to administrators, scientists, engineers, technologists and educationists to find ways and means for multi-dimensional development of the northern region, Haryana Governor A R Kidwai said today.
There was a long felt need to set up an integrated body for rapid development of the states of Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and Chandigarh, Kidwai said while delivering the presidential address at a function organised at the Centre for Research in Rural and Industrial Development (CRRID) here.
Professor A W Khan, Assistant Director, UNESCO, said that knowledge of science and technology should be made compulsory for all Governors and Ministers for an integrated development of the country, as advance knowledge in these fields had an important impact on our developmental scenario to meet the challenges posed by poverty and economic backwardness.
