Udayapur, February 20 President Bidhya Devi Bhandari today said poverty alleviation was only possible through education.

Addressing the Golden Jubilee program of Triveni Secondary School in Udayapur’s Katari Municipality, Bhandari held that the government should focus on scientific and skill-oriented education.

“All tiers of government should adopt scientific education to improve quality of education in community schools,” she said. Stating the country was facing technical manpower crunch, Bhandari argued community schools should be centers producing technical manpower for tomorrow’s Nepal. “Failure to implement professional and practical education will force educated youths to fly to Gulf countries,” she stated.
