Saleem Ahmed, director-general of the Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan (NYKS) on Saturday called upon the tribal youth to enter the mainstream of society, saying their participation was crucial for the nation’s development.

He was addressing a gathering of tribal youth during the inauguration of the week-long 5th National Tribal Youth Exchange programme held here. To make them participate, the Union and State governments had to encourage them, Mr. Ahmed said.

A.H. Vishwanath, MP, noted that both governments were working with the tribal youth to ensure their overall development. He told the youth to gain the most from the programme and take home the message of national integration. “The State is doing its best to bring the tribal population into the mainstream, but its efforts will pay off only if they cooperate,” Mr. Vishwanath said.

He added that attaining educational qualifications would greatly contribute to individual and overall development. He lauded NYKS for bringing together youth from the tribal communities from Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha and Bihar under the youth exchange programme.
