ITANAGAR, March 3 (PTI): Union minister of state for education Subhas Sarkar on Friday said that the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre is committed to create systems, processes and policies aimed at developing a self-reliant country.
Interacting with students from other states who are in Arunachal Pradesh as part of ‘Yuva Sangam’ in Namsai district, Sarkar said that the idea of a sustained and structured cultural connection between the people of different regions was given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
‘Yuva Sangam’ under ‘Ek Bharat Shrestha Bharat’ is a programme launched by the Centre with focus on conducting exposure tours of youth between the eight northeastern states and other states of the country, an official communiqué said.
Addressing the students, the minister said because of this initiative they were in the beautiful state of Arunachal Pradesh, which is full of diversity.
During their tours, they will have a multi-dimensional exposure under five broad areas – ‘Paryatan’ (tourism), ‘parampara’ (traditions), ‘pragati’ (development), ‘prodyogik’ (technology) and ‘paraspar sampark’ (people-to-people connect).
He added that a nation that has energetic, curious and hard-working youth and is able to provide them ample opportunity to work and grow builds a strong base for its own development.
