Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba has expressed his firm commitment to enhancing the standards of higher education in the country.

Presiding over the 22nd general assembly of the Pokhara University on Tuesday, PM Deuba, also the chancellor of the university, pledged to make the higher education need-based, employment-intensive, practical and qualitative.

He expressed the government's full support to enhance the quality of education by ending anomalies persisting in the educational sector of the country.

Prime Minister Deuba highlighted the important role of Pokhara University in prospering the society and steering ahead of the country to the path of prosperity.

Noting that country's development would not gain momentum without peace and political stability, he stressed the spectacular role of the university to that end.

It is the university that can only produce highly competent human resources and thereby end educational unemployment, he said, adding unstable and rudderless education sector would ultimately undermine the country's development.

He suggested the universities collaborate with the local levels.

On the occasion, University's Chancellor Prof Dr Prem Narayan Aryal presented the annual policy and programme of the PU for the fiscal year 2022/23 while Registrar Dr Deepak Bahadur Bhandari presented the budget.

The assembly has approved an annual budget of Rs 1.46 billion for the fiscal year 2022/23. The approved budget includes Rs 640.3 million for capital expenditure and Rs 819.64 million for recurrent expenditure.
