He handed out certificates to the trainees who participated from villages from around Dimapur district.
Speaking on behalf of the trainees, I. Hokuto Kiho thanked the two departments for organizing the training that has immensely benefited local carpenters in terms of skills and knowledge. He said that all the trainees who attended the training are from villages, equipped outdated tools, which cannot be used for the training they have received.
