AMPATI: Minister for Sports & Youth Affairs Zenith Sangma has urged the parents to give priority to their children and identify their potentialities to effectively prepare them for their future and at the same time, he also motivated the students to dream big and be determined to achieve their dreams in any given situation. He was interacting with the students and parents during the distribution of solar lanterns to students under Meghalaya New & Renewable Energy Development Agency (MNREDA) at Rangsakona on Saturday.
The minister said that distribution of solar lanterns was government’s gesture of acknowledging the hardship faced by the students particularly in the rural areas, adding that the scheme is apart of government’s effort at promoting and propagating use of clean and renewable energy. Stating that the state is not self-sufficient in energy due to lack of farsightedness of the governments in the past, he stressed the need to go for alternative sources of energy, like solar and wind energy which is free and unlimited. “The education sector is being given top priority and as such the State Government has been making earnest efforts to improve quality of education through infrastructure building and teachers’ training programmes. If students are not given the kind of handholding they need we will have more of unproductive youths who will be a burden to the society and the state”, he said.
Participating in the distribution of lanterns, South West Garo Hills, Deputy Commissioner, Cyril Diengdoh said that through this initiative students can be made aware of the huge potentiality of solar energy and at the same time it would help them while preparing for their exams. BDO of Betasing and Damalgre, Albert G.Momin and Project Officer (BE) MNREDA, Sheila Sangma and Principal of Rangsakona Higher Secondary School also spoke on the occasion, while Project Officer, MNREDA, D.M. Sangma demonstrated to the students on how to use and charge the solar lamps.
