DCM urges youths to face challenges

ITANAGAR, Nov 24: Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein urged the youths of the state to accept and face the reality of modern-day challenges.
The DCM said this while addressing the 10th AAPSA-Sahodaya Talent Search competition at Donyi Polo Vidya Bhawan here on Friday.
Encouraging students and youths to face the challenges in life with courage and self-belief, the DCM said improved education along with better understanding of the risks and opportunities would help them in taking unprecedented leaps towards achieving their goals.
“As a senior citizen of the state, I would like to see Arunachal Pradesh marching towards the brightest 21st century, and this can be only possible if we develop competitiveness among bright and advanced youngsters,” said Mein.
Referring to the creation of the Staff Selection of Board and the competitive exams being conducted by the APPSC, the DCM said the youngsters must develop a competitive mindset to clear the exams for government jobs.
“The intention of the state government is to groom the youngsters and create numerous opportunities for the future of the youths,” he said, and reiterated the scope for self-employment in the agriculture, horticulture, tourism and industrial sectors.
Underlining the importance of skill development, Mein said white-collar jobs are limited and the youths should look for self-employment opportunities.
“You have to recognize your own abilities and find an opportunity for self-employment accordingly,” he said.
Commending the All Arunachal Private Schools’ Association (AAPSA), the DCM said the association has helped “set a benchmark in providing quality education to the student community.”
The three-day event is organised by the AAPSA-Sahodaya to encourage co-curricular and extra-curricular activities under the theme ‘Together to excel’. (DCMO)
