Students receive incentive from MLA

ITANAGAR, Aug 20: Fifty-two students of Liromoba assembly constituency in West Siang district who have qualified for the mains of the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Combined Competitive Examination (APPSCCE) were awarded Rs 20,000 each by local MLA Nyamar Karbak during an ‘interaction cum recognition programme’ here on Monday.
Initiated by Karbak, the programme was organized by the Liromoba MLA’s Talent Scheme, led by its chairman, Capital Complex ADC Hento Karga.
Addressing the candidates, Karbak said the interaction programme was an effort to provide a platform to the civil services aspirants to interact with experienced and senior civil servants and to keep them motivated towards their goals in life.
Elated that more than 50 candidates from his constituency have cleared the APPSCCE prelims, Karbak advised the candidates “not to get carried away with the thought that they have qualified for the mains and take things lightly.”
Speaking as resource person, Capital Complex Deputy Commissioner Prince Dhawan gave his insight into the various aspects involved in realizing the dream of becoming a civil servant.
Dhawan, a UPSC topper himself, asked the students to have patience and advised them to work hard.
“Passion is the key to crack any examination. You don’t have to be a brilliant student to crack the APPSCCE or UPSC exams as all that you need is that drive to push yourself. As your struggles are your own, put in your hard work and you will definitely succeed,” Dhawan said.
Emphasizing on smart work, he exhorted the youngsters to keep in touch with the society and know about what is happening in the country by reading newspapers and books.
Yomcha ADC Rujum Rakshap said, “The thoughts of an individual define his or her future.”
He advised the aspirants to stay away from the misapprehension that government jobs can only be had through backdoor entry or by money.
“Do not demoralize yourself with such thoughts and stay positive at all times,” said Rakshap, adding that “hard work, a remote vision and firm intention is all that is required to become successful in life.”
APPSCE-2016 topper Bittu Kri asked the students to prepare for the exams in a relaxed manner.
“Do not compare with others and make you own plan. Do not concentrate on victory but on your preparations,” said Kri.
Capital SP (SIC) Pranav Tayal and OSD to DCM, Anupam Tangu, also motivated the students.
The resource persons also answered queries from the aspirants.
