Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu on June 29 inaugurated a computer training institute in Itanagar run by Yuva Vikas Society under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY).
About 60 students have enrolled for three and half months of basic computer course.
Speaking on the occasion, Khandu said, “The institute is the second PMKVY training centre in the state capital besides 27 other such centres to open soon in Arunachal Pradesh.”
The chief minister said PMKVY is an initiative of PM Narendra Modi who wishes to see every youth in the country gain meaningful employment by acquiring skills.
Underlining the importance of learning computer, Khandu said, “Being literate means not only to read and write but also means being computer literate.”
He advised the students to be sincere and to focus on learning new skills and knowledge and not mere aim for getting certificates.
He further asked them to take help from the skill department for more intensive coaching.
