Pg10 Universities should be prolific in research: PM PTI PUTTAPARTHI (AP)
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday stressed the need for universities to focus on research to sustain the rapid progress made by the country in fields like information technology and bio-technology. â€œOur scientists and technicians have already achieved renown in several areas. Information technology, the pharmacological sciences and biotechnology, space and nuclear technology easily come to mind. If we are to sustain and expand this, it is vitally important that our universities become more prolific in research on a much larger scale,â€? he said.
