Kasargod, Feb 9: “Scientific research should aim for a bright future for humans and the world,” said Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan.

He was speaking after inaugurating the 36th Science Congress at Kasaragod Government College. “Scientific progress should be utilised in a responsible manner,” he said.

“Growth of scientific enthusiasm and logical thinking are the responsibility of every citizen as mentioned in the 51st chapter of the constitution. Some people are trying to topple that perspective and make ours a religious nation. Therefore, this should be a careful step,” he said.

“Everybody in the science sector should take up activities realising that the growth of science depends on social harmony. The 36th Science Congress will convert the economy of Kerala by means of health. It is necessary to give importance to the health of nature and other creatures along with humans. 60% of the contagious illnesses that affect humans are genetic. More than 70% of the new contagious diseases are genetic. Therefore, a means of health is essential for the safety and progress of humans,” he said.

“The state government has decided to progress with a health policy. The project is started in four selected districts in the first phase. Special training programmes were held in this connection. District-level officers and laboratory assistants provided special training to all,” he said.
