Meghalaya chief minister Conrad Sangma said that India as a country has to channelize the potential of the youth and take the country forward.
Speaking at the 43rd Annual College Day celebration of the Loyola Academy in Hyderabad on April 8, the chief minister said: “Youth is our greatest strength. If the potential of the youth is channelized in the right direction, they can prove to be our asset. However, if they are misguided the youth force of our country can be destructive.”
Lauding institutes like Loyola Academy for shaping the young minds in the country, he said: “As political leaders, we should always communicate and engage with the youth and ensure that their true potential is tapped. For our nation to grow, we have to depend on our youth”.

Informing the gathering about his discussion with Rama Rao on Apple Inc. and its turnover, which is close to 3 trillion dollars, chief minister Conrad Sangma said: “Apple is almost 3 trillion-dollar company, and India’s GDP is not even 3 trillion… we have over 1.2 billion population. The productivity of the people in Apple is very high and we as a country have to ponder and work together to take the country forward.”
He handed over mementos to staff members, students and other members of the Loyola Academy for their contribution and achievement in different academic spheres.
