The governor iterated the importance of communicating with the youth by the elders of the society and requested the parents, teachers and social leaders to take time out to talk with the children.

The governor maintained that all religions should converge in an effort to build an open and tolerant society.

Earlier, Swami Vishwatmananda, Secretary, Ramakrishna Mission Hospital, Itanagar, expressed regret that lack of porper guidance had resulted in the youth force being not positively and constructively utilised.

State Industries Minister H.Khekiho Zimomi, Rev. Father Mathew Keemattan, Vicar General of diocese of Kohima Narottom Nagar and Arunachal Pradesh Ramkrishna Mission Secretary Swami Ishatmananda also spoke on the occasion.
