A secular country must ensure welfare of all: Dr K S Bhagavan

Writer K. S. Bhagavan asks government to care for the poor.

KANNUR: A secular country must serve its people equally and ensure their welfare, according to noted writer and thinker Dr K. S. Bhagavan. “The government should take care of the people who are struggling to meet their daily needs,” he said while inaugurating the Kannur University Students Union on the Nirmalagiri College premises on Friday. He added that the education system in the country should promote rationalism and scientific thinking.

“However at present, the majority of the educational institutions do not encourage the thinking capacity of the students,” he said. He also criticised the Nirmalagiri college management for denying permission to hold the programme on the campus after the SFI won the college union elections last time. Kannur University Pro-Vice-Chancellor Dr T. Asokan and University Union chairman C.P. Shiju among others were present.
