Maintaining that the youths of Manipur had got many talents and are hardworking by nature, he added that lack of discipline, professionalism and ethics among the people had been a hindrance to growth and development and even to governance. As such, he stressed the need for proper guidance of youth in the right direction to make them job providers instead of becoming job seekers.

He continued that the State Government had taken up certain steps to make educational institutions systematic and organised by appointing a regular Vice-Chancellor of Universities. Making institutions and offices work systematically would help in the smooth functioning and progress of society, he added.

The Chief Minister continued that many entrepreneurs had come up with the production of wide range of items like strawberries, poultry, fish etc, thereby helping the State in import substitution and progressing towards self-reliance in many sectors.
