Chief Minister today urged teachers to become role models for students and not to take their profession as a mere job but as a service to the society.

"A teacher's job is not merely to produce successful students but they have a responsibility to create good human beings with high moral integrity," the chief minister said while launching the 'Lakshya' programme in Dibrugarh district.

An initiative of Dibrugarh district administration, 'Lakshya' aims at making the learning process easier and more attractive by utilizing online academic resources, classroom etc.

The state was striving to develop a smart education system and for that the teachers must upgrade their skills with modern methodologies to instill an innovative thinking process in students, he said.
