Expressing concern over the depleting work culture among the younger generation, Health & Family Welfare minister K Azo Nienu on Saturday underscored the need to revive the work culture practiced in the past.
Inaugurating the Dozo brick factory at Zani village, Nienu in a clarion call appealed to the youth to live honestly and work towards self employment to pave way for a more peaceful atmosphere in society.
Stating that the changing life pattern has en-tuned the youth to seek easy money resulting in extortion, percentages, kidnapping and various other anti-social practices, Nienu stressed on the need to realize ‘dignity of labor’ in its true sense.
The prevailing life style of Nagas has belittled the slogan ‘work and eat’ to ‘demand and eat’, Nienu said adding such anti-social practices have brought about killings, differences and feuds derailing relationship among the people.
The minister further stated that unemployment has been catapulted by unaccounted odd jobs and urged the youth to make the most of all avenues wherein gainful self employment was possible to do away with ‘unemployment’.
Commenting on the youth foraying into new ventures considered untenable earlier for self employment, Nienu encouraged all youth to work sincerely in taking up new challenges. ‘We have to start opening our eyes to various avenues,’ he reiterated.
Dozo brick kiln entrepreneur Vezoto Dozo has meanwhile expressed gratitude to the DAN government for its pro-youth policies and encouraging the youth to explore potentialities in taking up various entrepreneurships.
The Dozo Bricks Industry Pvt Ltd has also extended gratitude to H&FW minister K Azo Nienu for inaugurating the factory and extending all support.
The minister was accompanied by MLA and Chairman Marcofed CL John, host of government officials. The programme was graced by VCC Zani, elders and well wishers.
