Naiba Konyak also challenged the trainees to prove themselves worthwhile by striving to receive the prestigious ‘Governor’s Award’ through hard work with the machineries provided by the DUDA. He said the main purpose of implementing such programme for youth from border areas was to impart training so that they could earn their livelihood through self employment without depending on their parents and government. He said the training was initiated more importantly to upgrade their skills as the youth in the rural area fails to identify and utilize their talent.
Naiba Konyak also advised the trainees to put in little effort by taking utmost advantage of the resource which are easily available in abundance free of cost.
