Sohra, Nov 3: Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K. Sangma and Education Minister Lahkmen Rymbui today laid the foundation stone for new building of Sohra Govt College in East Khasi Hills.

Laying the foundation for the new college building, Chief Minister underscored on the importance of right education and spelled on the rationale behind the formulation of Meghalaya Youth Policy.

“I think as a State, we need to ensure that we channelize the energy of our youth so that they can become productive,” the Chief Minister said, while informing on the discussion that has been considered for giving shape to the youth policy.

He said that the youth policy entails intervention that would allow youth to undergo training in their chosen field or hobby. “We will lay our thrust to allow youth to explore their creativity and their passion. Even if it costs the government, we would ensure that our youth are trained in skills or activities they would like to pursue,” the Chief Minister said.

“As government, we believe that our youth have to be guided in the right approach. So that they become productive, responsible, patriotic, hardworking, committed citizens of the state and this country”, he asserted.

Talking on intervention to revamp education in the State, he said, “We have made an endeavour to revamp education scenario in the State. It is a challenge before us but we are committed. We need roughly about 2500 cr to revamp elementary education alone”.

“We have close to 3000 elementary schools; 70 percent of them have not been repaired since its inception and some of the schools are under bamboo and CGI sheets, some of them don’t even have windows… some of them don’t even have furniture,” he explained.

“We need to start somewhere to make a difference for our children,” he added.

“It is a very tough journey with lot of challenges”.
