Krish Mohan Singha, a resident of Rongpur near this town, has left for the 4 day commemorative SAARC Youth Year 1994 to be held at Bhubaneswar city of Odisha, beginning from September 17 and to conclude on September 20. This is the 23rd anniversary of the SAARC Youth Year. Kh. Krish Mohan Singha will be a delegate to represent Republic of India in the South Asian Youth Summit which is organized with the global theme of “Creating a Sustaible Future: Empowering Youth With Sustaible Opportunities”. The Summit is organized by Intertiol Youth Committee.
According to Himadullah Sohu, Secretary General, South Asian Youth Summit, a total number of 150 participants from all SAARC’s member states and observer states will take part in the intertiol event. The Summit is organized to bring together youth people of the region in order to address issues that impact youth in this part of the world. This is also being organized to strengthen and tighten the existing relationships among the South Asian tions. Such unification and articulation of ideas and views have become imperative in view of the prevailing tension and near conflicts of interests.
It would be in the best interests of the people of the region, pointed out Himadullah Sohu, to formulate a policy by identifying common issues and problems of the regions to empower the youth and to facilitate effective partnership with youth-led organizations as well as youth movements. It is also designed to further strengthen inclusive youth participation in the decision making processes and implementation of the United tions sustaible development goals, pointed out the Secretary General. It will also contribute to the establishment of a permanent youth engagement mechanism that ensures consistent follow up with young people.
Besides, the aim of the Youth Summit is to boosts their participation and partnership in the implementation of the United tions Sustaible Development Goals at tiol, regiol and global levels. It is the confidence and optimism that the Summit will produce a joint outcome between the states and the youths called “Bhubaneswar Youth Declaration 2017”. The issues which are likely to be raised in regard to northeast India today at the Summit are quite burning that call for serious attention and solution if its very basic aims are to succeed.
Post colonial northeast India is confronting the separatist movements launched by different insurgent groups. Moreover, from across the border, Indian neighbour Chi is claiming part of the northeast like Aruchal Pradesh. There is constant migration of students and professiols to mainland India from northeast due to lack of proper opportunities in their frontier states. There are other issues which Kh. Krish Mohan Singha would like to discuss which according to him require serious attention in order to build a peaceful South Asia. Significantly, Kh. Krish Mohan Singha is one of the 10 delegates from India who is representing his country that too from the remotely located Silchar at the Summit.
