Gangtok, Aug 12
On International Youth Day former Chief Minister Pawan Chamling called upon Sikkimese youth to positively employ your energy to build a better Sikkim that the posterity will thank you for.
In his message to
youth Chamling said “Youth are the wellspring of energy and creativity. Every
nation of the world has been forged by the power of the youth, and Sikkim is no
different. Having realised the importance of youth in state building, the SDF government
initiated a plethora of youth-oriented schemes aimed towards harnessing the
youth power and positively deploy it to building a better Sikkim.
This year’s theme for ‘International Youth Day’ is ‘Transforming Education’ to make education more relevant, equitable and inclusive for all youth. I feel proud to state that the SDF government revolutionised education in Sikkim by making it free right up to post graduation, by providing free uniforms, textbooks, shoes, school bags etc. Sikkim remains the only state in the country to provide free technical education. As a result, Sikkim is all poised to become a fully literate state in the country.”
