But we have jumped to the third position in the past one year. In the future, the state will be number one in the education sector,” Fadnavis said.The Chief Minister was addressing a gathering after presenting the Adarsh Shikshak and Savitribai Phule Adarsh Shikshika (Best Teacher awards) to 109 teachers here.”The state government disburses around Rs 50,000 crore to the education sector but it does not consider it an expenditure but an investment for the future.”Teachers are responsible for readying the young generation for the future and making them fine, law-abiding citizens. Students uplift cannot happen without these teachers,” he said.Fadnavis said that this year, 25,000 schools have been made digital and that the state government will undertake Maharashtra Net on the lines of Bharat Net being implemented by the Centre.”Under this, the health and education services will be made available to people at the village level.

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Allegri says the €112 million (£98m/$129m) signing from Real Madrid, who has scored four goals in his eight Serie A appearances, looks to be in encouraging form.”I can only talk about what I see,” he told a news conference. “I’m not the right person to talk about any other situation. Ronaldo played a fantastic game and he is working calmly. He scored a wonderful goal.”I don’t know how Ronaldo lives away from the pitch. I’m not his housemate! He really looks fine to me. He is working well and he is scoring a lot of goals.”The victory, Juve’s eighth from a possible eight in the league this season, are now nine points clear of second-place Napoli ahead of Carlo Ancelotti’s men facing Sassuolo on Sunday.With the champions not playing again until October 20, Allegri is delighted to head into the international break having produced what he considers probably their best display of 2018-19.”That was one of our best performances of the season so far – perhaps the absolute best,” he said.”We used all of the pitch well and afforded the opposition very little all game. I asked the lads to give me a relaxing international break and to keep a clean sheet. There was a risk we might have let up a little after nine wins but we played with great maturity.”last_img read more
