Deborah urges youth not to depend on govt
TURA: Meghalaya elementary education and literacy minister Deborah Marak on Wednesday inaugurated the workshop organised for civil services aspirants from Garo Hills by the East Garo Hills District Administration under the Chief Minister’s Career Guidance and Counselling Programme.
The idea of the workshop was to familiarise the students on different scopes and opportunities in civil services apart from Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Police Service (IPS), Indian Revenue Service (IRS), etc.
A group of around 180 plus select students from different institutions of Garo hills converged at Williamnagar in East Garo Hills for the two days mentoring session with D Shankar from Shankar IAS Academy in Chennai and other resource persons including DC of East Garo Hills, Ram Kumar and sub-divisional officer (civil) of Daddengre, Swapnil Timbe.
Speaking at the occasion, Marak said, “Our students from Garo hills are too much dependent on state level government jobs, which are saturated, when there is ocean of opportunities, what we need is to identify and prepare ourselves to achieve it”.
Marak also asked the students not to be satisfied with ‘quotas’ and ‘job reservations’ and explore their vistas to prepare for prestigious examinations and lucrative career in public services.
