Guwahati (Assam), Aug 10, 2018
The District Advisory Committee on Youth Programme (DACYP) in Hailakandi has approved the implementation of youth-centric programmes during the current financial year.
Hailakandi Deputy Commissioner Adil Khan asked the Yuva Kendra Sangathan (NYKs) to pinpoint the areas of activities in which it can work in tandem with other departments in empowering youth of the district and assured to facilitate the same.
Member Secretary and District Youth Coordinator, NYKs, Sekhar Ranjan Deb, sought the cooperation of the chairman and members for implementation of the youth-centric programmes as per the time schedule. After threadbare discussion, the committee approved the youth oriented programmes for the current fiscal.
Eminent scientist of Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK), Dr. Sheikh Md. Azizur Rahman, said “KVK associated with several skill upgradation training programmes with NYKs and some of them have been quite successful”. Dr. Rahman, however, suggested proper selection of candidates for induction into skill training programmes “as most of the trained youth look out for greener pastures vis-a-vis white-collar jobs than becoming self-independent by setting up their own units.”
