Dimapur, August 7: Governor of Nagaland & Chief Patron NSBG, P.B Acharya today said the advantage the people of Nagaland have from the rest of the other states in the country is that the medium of education here is English, while at the same time the people in Nagaland are disciplined and organised from the lowest level.
With these two factors in mind, he asked the students to bring about development in the State in such a way that it will empower the people.
“Students should not only aim at seeking government jobs but explore entrepreneurship and create jobs along the way for the development of the State. The education that they achieve should be aimed at enhancing their families, their tribes, villages, the State and the Nation as a whole,” he said.
He was speaking at the award ceremony of Rajya Puraskar (Governor’s Award) of the Nagaland Bharat Scouts and Guides at the Durbar hall, Raj Bhavan Kohima today.
Acharya said the fact that they are a member of the Scouts and Guides movement increases their strength and confidence and their ability to move forward in the society.
Advisor, Youth Resources & Sports and President NSBSG, Er. Zale Neikha in his presidential address congratulated the awardees and encouraged them to aim further for the President’s award. He hoped to see the growth of the international movement in our state which will produce respectable, humble and strong willed personality to take our people forward.
The Governor presented the certificate of Rajya Puraskar 2018 to 34 Guides and 21 Scouts from Dimapur, Kohima and Mokokchung districts. It is an award for a Scout/Guide who has qualified by undergoing a series of tests conducted at the state level under the guidance of experienced and qualified examiners.
Earlier welcome address was delivered by Director Higher Education & Vice President, NSBSG, Kuholi Chishi. (Page News Service)
