The LG also inaugurated the portal of the Higher Education Department of UT Ladakh. He felicitated the National Cadet Corps (NCC) and National Service Scheme (NSS) cadets of EJM College.

The annual magazine of EJM College, ‘Senge Khababs’ was also released on the occasion.

Highlighting the need to take India forward as a developed nation, the LG stated that youth is the biggest component, which will play a crucial part in taking our nation on the path of development.

He also stated that providing the best education and ensuring the good health of the youth should be prioritised.

The onus is on everyone to contribute in these two aspects and not rely solely on the government to take initiatives for the development of society, he further stated.

Stating that attachment of government staff is a menace, the LG stated that selfishness creates a barrier between society and humans.

Terming Ladakhi youth as talented, the LG highlighted the need for their channelisation and providing them with adequate opportunities. Calling youth energetic, industrious and hard-working, he reiterated the need to develop the Ladakhi youth.

Highlighting the four castes pointed out by the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, i.e. poor, youth, women and farmers, the LG appreciated the Lakhpati Didi scheme and Start-Up India scheme initiated by the Prime Minister for the betterment of women and youth of the country.

The LG emphasised breaking the mentality of looking for government jobs after completing studies and asked the youth to become job creators instead of job-seekers by embracing start-ups and entrepreneurship.

The LG also visited all four skill workshop-cum-laboratories developed by the Ladakh Skill Development Mission at a cost of Rs 33.88 lakhs and also interacted with the students.

The LG advised the girl students to pursue extra-curricular activities seriously so that they can also become Lakhpati Didi and contribute to the betterment of society. He also wished them luck in their endeavours.
