Gov urges students to contribute towards nation-building

Nagaland governor La. Ganesan on Wednesday encouraged the students to be an inspiration and role model for everyone around them and contribute towards nation-building.
Governor, who graced the “District Level Yuva Utsav” as chief guest at Xavierite Auditorium, Jalukie town, said that as model citizens of the country, everyone should not just conform to the law of existence i.e., birth, grow, marry, bear children and die. “With education comes responsibility; responsibility towards our own-self, towards our families, towards our state, and our country,” Ganesan stated.
According to a DIPR report, the event, which was held on the theme “Remove Any Trace of Colonial Mindset”, was organised by St. Xavier College, Jalukie, and Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan and sponsored by the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports.
On the occasion, governor launched the initiative for women—”the introduction of E-Rickshaw” as a new resource for the girl students, to be managed by the girl students and supervised by the women’s cell.
With this new introduction, the governor expressed hope that it will instil in youth, especially girls, a greater sense of dignity of labour and responsibility.
Ganesan noted that the number of girl students in the college has been comparatively higher than that of the boy students in the last few years, which he said was itself another remarkable feature about the college. “This is women empowerment and this is nation building,” he said.
To uplift the well-being of the citizens of the country, governor said “we must first empower women.”
Bishop of Nagaland, Most Rev. Dr. James Thoppil, who was the guest of honour, also spoke at the programme.
Earlier, college principal, Dr. Fr. Francis Cheerangal, delivered greetings, while the relevance of Yuva Utsav was shared by NYKS nodal officer, Ruokuovikho Chale, and a vote of thanks was proposed by Xavierite Youth Care Coordinator, Mahieyile.
Young Writers’ & Artists’ Contest, Declamation, Photography & Cultural Dance were the different competition events that were held during the day-long event.
