He also opined that government has a crucial role to play, imparting enabling environment, help unleash the potential of the young people, prepare young people how to live and contribute to the world of tomorrow as it is no longer enough to simply impart a knowledge on some specific academic skills. “We have to teach them sophisticated social skill that will enable them to become change maker in our society”, he added.
