Kohima, July 19 (NEx): Noklak Police in collaboration with ICAR set up poultry farms in 11 villages of Noklak with the motto for self reliant Noklak and to channelize the energy of youth in the district.
Noklak Police informed that ICAR contributed 2000 chickens and 12 Self help groups (SHG) received the chickens. Noklak police and NGOs of Noklak coordinated for the whole program with ICAR while TRPO president Mr. Hangthing and KMH president Ms. Newkai helped in other logistics and distribution arrangements, it said.
The SP Noklak, Dr. Pritpal kaur IPS said that Youth are the future of our land and though there is lack of employment opportunities, taking the path of entrepreneurship is one very good option towards better livelihood.
Dr Kaur also informed that many youth who started their SHGs for entrepreneurship were provided the chickens to open poultry farms and observed that the youth are enthusiastic for the program.
She also mentioned that the problem of drugs and other bad habits which is rampant in the district may enter the youth and society faster if their energy is not channelized in the right direction on time, hence showing the right path in the beginning helps in building up efficient and skilled human resource which will make our society more developed. This will rather lead to self reliant and self sufficient Noklak, she added.
Meanwhile, seeds of basmati rice were also distributed to Noklak farmers for cultivation by Noklak Police in collaboration with KVK Tuensang.
The SP observed that drought has been observed this year at many places in Nagaland, hence she advised for water harvesting and judicious water usage by the farmers.
Further, she said that the delivery of seeds were delayed due to COVID-19 lockdown, and therefore, innovative nursery was taught to farmers which can be raised in 2 weeks.
