Youths must seek to become job providers: Governor

23RONO HILLS, Feb 22: Governor BD Mishra on Friday participated in a ‘Josh Talks’ programme organised by the capital complex administration at Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU) here as part of the Statehood Day celebrations.
In his address, the governor exhorted youths to inculcate honesty, humanism and respect for human dignity, and advised them to cultivate grit and determination to succeed in life.
He urged parents not to limit the prospects of their children by advising them to study in order to get jobs, and emphasized that “today’s youths must inculcate the spirit of entrepreneurship and become job providers instead of job seekers.”
Cautioning youths against drug abuse and alcoholism, he said, “Drugs and alcohol may give pleasure for some period, but in ultimate analysis, it destroys one’s own family, and the happiness of one’s kith and kin.”
Social activist and crusader against drug abuse, Jaya Tasung Moyong, karateka and Police Inspector P Nobin Jomoh, tour operator Shi Oken Tayeng, acclaimed violinist of the state, Phil Jamja, and child actor Martin Rey Tangu also shared their experiences.
