By Rudra Narayan Sahoo, Mumbai: Union Minister of State (IC) for Power , Coal, New & Renewable Energy Piyush Goyal opined the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) to conduct social sciences training programme for ministers. “TISS should consider training programme in behavioural sciences, ethics and leadership for ministers and other public servants” he said while addressing the 76th Convocation of the Institute in Mumbai on Saturday.

Goyal said behavioural science impacts society deeply. He said across the country, public servants should be sensitized on how to deal with the poor and the downtrodden who approach them seeking some help. Stating that a continuous learning programme for the ministers and bureaucrats was a good idea, Mr. Goyal said a beginning could be made with Mumbai and Maharashtra, which could be extended to other parts later.

Goyal said Human Resource Development is the important function in any organization that wants to succeed in the long run. He said TISS has empowered its students to take up leadership roles in the society. The Minister urged some of the students to consider politics as a career option as well.

The Minister complimented the efforts of Mumbai Municipal Corporation sweeper Sunil Yadav, who secured the TISS M.Phil degree. “Sunil Yadav securing M.Phil is an inspirational story. It encourages us to contribute to the society”. Shri Goyal urged the graduating students to be part of the movement of development.

The Minister honoured the meritorious students with medals and shields in different fields of social sciences. Shri S. Ramadorai, Chairman, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, in his welcome address spoke about how the institute collaborated with government in the field of climate change as a run up to the Paris Conference.
