In the context of Uttarakhand, he said that employment opportunities should be generated in the hill areas to check migration from there. For this, skill development programmes based on local requirements and resources must be designed.
He said that at present, skill development programmes are being run in Dehradun, Haridwar and Udham Singh Nagar districts. They need to be extended to the hill areas, focusing on animal husbandry, medicinal plants, aromatic plants and food processing.
The Governor said that the students should make constant efforts to innovate. They should cultivate the reading habit too, he said.The students shared their experiences with the Governor. They said that career counseling and network connectivity are what the students in the hill areas need the most
