It is not possible for the state government to provide all the unemployed youths in Manipur, hence the focus should be on accessing skill development programmes that are suitable to the state conditions, says CAU-Imphal director of instruction S Basanta Singh.

The Manipur government launched several programmes, including the Start-Up Manipur, as the state has seven lakh unemployed youths and it is not possible for the government to provide them all with jobs, a Central Agricultural University (CAU) official said on Saturday.

"Agriculture is the mainstay of the state’s economy and only agricultural based industry can run efficiently in the state. Industries in the state depend on other states resulting in the inability to operate industry sustainably as it is not profitable. As such youth of the state should access skill development programmes that are suitable to the state conditions," CAU-Imphal director of instruction S Basanta Singh said.

Basanta was speaking at the Skill Development Training Programme on Value Addition on Fruits, Vegetables and Spices that concluded on Sunday.

The programme was also attended by dean of College of Food Technology, Lamphelpat, Ngasepam Iboyaima and state nodal officer of Food Safety Training and Certificate, Sougaijam Surendro.
