Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Saturday said all IAS, IPS and IFS officers of the state should inspire the youth to aim big and become worthy citizens of the country.

Inaugurating mentoring programme ‘Arohan’ here in the presence of 200 IAS, IPS and IFS officers of the state, both serving and retired, Sonowal underlined the importance of the mentoring programme in guiding the youth to show them the correct path to fulfill their career aspirations.

Stating the youth of the state must be mentored by all the stakeholders so that they can contribute meaningfully to society, Sonowal said quality of education today would determine the quality of life tomorrow.

“Only material riches would not be enough to give life’s satisfaction but character building through spiritual strength is of prime importance in today’s world,” he said.

Sonowal also appealed the top officers to willingly take it as a mission to shape the future of the state by mentoring the youth through dedication and passion so that the state can make rapid progress in building human resources for the future.

Speaking on the occasion Education Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma said along with ‘Arohan’ another programme ‘Gunotsav’ has also been started where the IAS, IPS and IFS officers will visit all schools of the state and monitor their functioning, take part in their activities for the day and have mid-day meal with the students.
