BOMDILA, Nov 26: The economics department of the government college here in West Kameng district organized a webinar on ‘How to prepare for civil services’ for budding civil service aspirants on 25 November.

After the college’s Economics HoD Dr Tashi Phuntso welcomed the participants, the college’s Principal Sangja Khandu spoke on “the importance of positive thinking to meet the challenges of competitive exams.”

Guest speaker Bashir Ahmed, an alumnus of the college who is a 2008 batch Indian Foreign Service officer, spoke on qualities like “consistency, hard work, perseverance and discipline in personal life make the difference.”
