"There is literacy in our education system, but it lacks morality. We need to introduce moral teachings in our education process to make children 'cultured and morally sound',” the Governor said at a ceremony organised to welcome him at his in-laws' village Nahri.
"We will have to get rid of addictions (of drugs and drinks) and ill-practices like female foeticide and make a strong society," he added.
Expressing deep concern over female foeticide, the Governor termed it as a 'serious problem' and said it is taking place at a large scale in Himachal's areas adjacent to Haryana.
He however said that the girls to boys ratio is better in Lahaul-Spiti district and other far flung areas as 'modern education and modernity have not reached there'.
Dev Vrat said since becoming Governor of Himachal, he has spread the message for clean environment, promoted organic farming in the state, rearing of cow and and pressed for keeping youths away from addiction to drug and drinks.
