SHILLONG, Feb 19: Chief Minister Mukul Sangma motivated the youths to join the armed forces, besides, informing that 2000 odd vacancies in the State police will be announced by next week.

Sangma was speaking at the youths awareness and outreach programme organized to create awareness for recruitment to Armed forces and State Police at Shyamgar near Phulbari in West Garo Hills.

Motivated by the success of Army recruitment rally last year in Tura where 100 youths, including 64 from Garo Hills had qualified, the district administration is hopeful of mobilizing more and more youth to pursue their careers in the Army or the State Police. The Chief Minister in his address said, “There is so much joy and satisfaction in serving the tion and in protecting our people and our society,” and called on the youth to enroll themselves as there is no ceiling in vacancies for the Army.

He also said that those youths who do not qualify for the Army should not lose hope but go for other trainings being offered under skill development programme, saying that learning is a continuous process and the more we learn the more wisdom we get. “If all our youths are trained in various skills we can have a ready workforce for the industries that will be set up in the region”, he said, adding, “We need to ensure that no one is left jobless”.

The Chief Minister also informed that notification for filling up 2000 vacancies in Meghalaya police would be announced this week.
