He said there was acute shortage of manpower in food preservation and encouraged the students gathered to take up food technology and preservation and related research works.
The science day was commemorated in the form of a seminar on the theme “chemistry in our lives” for school students held at LCS building Kohima. Nukhu also encouraged students to go for civil engineering line which he said was short in the state, particularly those specializing in structure engineer.
