Silchar, March 24: “There is an urgent need of youth participation in every sphere of life to bring change in the country. The tion’s youth must be awake to lead the country in a better way.” This was observed by Sunil Ambekar, tiol organising secretary of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad. He was speaking at the ‘Youth Convention’ organised by the Northeast wing of the students’ body last evening here at NIT Silchar campus.
Dubbing the youth as the today’s citizen, Ambekar said that the ABVP is committed towards providing a platform to the young minds to participate in the tion building process. He added to say that youth occupies a pivotal position in the society and they are the promise of tomorrow. The way in which they develop their physical, mental, and moral qualities would determine the pattern of the tion’s future, he added.
Laying stress on the need of taking collecting responsibilities, he pointed out youth’s role in making India an “addiction free and green place” is very crucial.
Ambekar advocates quality and affordable primary education in the country so that no child is deprived of basic education. He called upon the young students who attended the programme to inculcate the habit of social service in his address on ‘Role of youth in making India a super power’.
The tiol general secretary of ABVP Sree Hari Borikar, while addressing the gathering maintained that the spirit of patriotism used to bind together the great sons of India like Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru who had laid down their lives on this very date of March 23 for the sake of their motherland.
