Guv Mukhi further said that Nagaland is struggling with the problem of employability faced by the educated youth.

Nagaland is reeling under acute power shortage even as the youth of the state face major employment issues.

This was revealed by Governor Prof Jagdish Mukhi while highlighting various issues concerning the state during the 70th plenary of the North East Council held in Guwahati.

Governor Mukhi informed that the State generates only 26 Mega Watts against the peak requirement of around 115 Mega Watts even as he urged the Council to include Power in the thrust areas.

Prof Mukhi further said that Nagaland is struggling with the problem of employability faced by the educated youth.

Governor said, the youth of today have high aspirations and expectations and when these aspirations are not met, frustration sets in, and they are easily misled to take to crime and anti-national activities.

He maintained that most of the NE states are confronted with insurgent activities and if the region is to usher in peace and development, the youth must be provided with opportunities to lead productive lives.

Capacity building and skill development in the region can give gainful employment to a large number of educated unemployed youth in various fields, he said.
