Imphal: People of the state are filled with enormous talents and one should not hesitate to take up any work which would help in nation building, chief minister N. Biren Singh said as he inaugurated vocational training program for youths through video conferencing at his secretariat on Monday.
Biren appreciated National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation (NHIDCL) for undertaking such employment oriented and skill development programs imparting various vocational courses to local youths and school dropouts and providing them employment opportunities leading to their social and economic empowerment.
NHIDCL has already conducted two training programs on operation and maintenance of construction equipment at Kakching and Tamenglong districts successfully.
Biren stressed that the present vocational program would train the youths from different districts on basic construction jobs such as masonry, carpentry, bar bender etc.
Mentioning about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for ‘vocal for local’, Biren said such campaigns would make India a self-reliant nation. The path of self reliance will be achieved by nurturing the young minds and upgrading their skills, he added.
Biren Singh gave his best wishes to all those trainees in their future endeavors.
