Nagaland Governor advocates for skill development

Kohima, Oct 6 (UNI) Nagaland Governor P B Acharya today advocated the need for imparting knowledge and skills based on trade, industries, IT, entrepreneur and others.
Speaking at the Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Training programme held at NIELIT
Hall in Meriema near Kohima this morning, organized by Career and Placement Cell and
Department of English of the Nagaland University of Kohima Campus, the Governor, who is also
the Chief Rector of Nagaland University, said often when the students pass out of University they are unemployable because the universities are still following the old system which is designed
for clerical and administrative jobs.
Mr Acharya advocated the need for imparting knowledge and skills based on trade, industries,
IT, entrepreneur and others.
Sixth Semester should be skill semester, he added.
The governor said the goal of education is not just to get a degree. Many professionals from
the state have to go out for lack of avenues in Nagaland and settle in other cities, strengthening other states.
He said the rich people can afford to send their children to better universities outside the state
for education but our universities attract the poor people.
Stressing on power irregularities in the state, Mr Acharya said Nagaland has Oil, Water and
Coal which are required to produce electricity, but even Raj Bhavan experiences power failure
almost ten times a day.
He urged the Universities to provide education based on the need of the people.
“Everything has to be reorganized, if the universities produce only self-centered people it is
no education at all. All the alumni should give back to the Universities,” Mr Acharya said
He urged the student organizations to take up issues related to education like mid day meal
which seldom reaches the students in many schools.
The governor directed the universities to use the resources efficiently and provide education
based on the need of the local people. He also advocated on providing training on skill
development for at least six months to the students.
The guest of honour, the Pro Vice Chancellor of the Nagaland University Prof. R.C. Gupta in
his address said every child is born with talents and the teaching community has to refine them.
He stressed on the demographic advantage of India which can fill the ‘talent gap’ even in other countries. He also mentioned about the need to provide skills based on area, gender, demand
and supply.
