Home Minister G Parameshwara said on Wednesday that Student Police Cadet (SPC) camps should be held in government schools across the state to promote overall development of students.

Speaking at the inauguration of SPC annual camp in the City, he said: “I feel that the youth are losing values because of modernisation. The training programme under SPC will enhance the overall development of students.”

He added that the government should explore the ways to introduce the SPC in all the government and aided schools across the state in phased manner. Cadets from government schools in Kodagu, Shivamogga, Mysuru and Bengaluru  participated in the three-day camp. He said that people have stopped extending help to those in distress.

People stage protests to demand their fundamental rights but they fail in discharging their fundamental duties when they are bound to, he added.

Speaking on the occasion, Satyamurthy, Commissioner for Public Instruction, said that the Education department was willing to introduce the SPC in over 48,000 government schools in the state. He asked P Harishekeran, state nodal officer for SPC, to send a proposal in this regard. Cadets from across the state will attend the three-day SPC camp. Training sessions will be organised by the Karnataka Legal Service Authority, Forest, Fire and Emergency Service department and Sakala mission.

The aim is to create awareness among students on current issues.Various NGOs will also train them in soft skills and personality development. Field visits will also arranged for the participants.
