Vice president emphasises on superior scientific prowess

 Vice president M Hamid Ansari on Saturday said that India should become a science innovation hub to achieve technological self-sufficiency and devise local solutions to the problems like poverty, agricultural productivity, water conservation and climate change.

He was addressing the gathering after inaugurating the JSS Science and Technology University in the city.

“An environment conducive to dissent and critical thinking — challenging established knowledge and dogmas — is required to pursue bigger questions in science and encourage innovation. Criticism is the basis of all advancement in science and this approach precludes imposition of any ideology,” the Vice President said.

He said that the country cannot hope to become a great power without a qualitatively superior scientific and technological prowess.
