TMPK urges members to take up entrepreneurship activities

By Correspondent

DHEMAJI, Dec 27 - Takam Mising Porin Kebang (TMPK), the all-Mising students� union, conducted its four-day 15th general conference at Akajan High School playground at Silapathar in Dhemaji district, which successfully concluded on Sunday.

The theme of the 15th general conference was: �Let us dedicate the year for achievement and development of academic atmosphere in primary schools�.

A number of topics pertaining to quality education, skill development, women empowerment, entrepreneurship development and creation of employment opportunities were taken up for discussion in various workshops during the four-day event.

The conference included a workshop on socio-economic, educational and environmental issues so as to enable the TMPK activists to herald an economic revolution in Mising-populated areas through skill development and entrepreneurship activities.

The concluding day�s programme included a workshop on, �Scope of prospective schemes for unemployed youth for self-employment under PRI�, wherein the Director of the State Institute of Rural Development Khageswar Pegu held threadbare discussion on various scopes and opportunities of self-employment through skill training.

Stating that the government has allocated a huge amount of funds under the Skill Development Department and 14th Finance Commission every year, Pegu urged unemployed youth to avail the opportunities offered by the government for self employment. He observed that curiosity, working skill and self-confidence were key to achieve success for the self-employed.

The SIRD Director also spoke on �Public-Private Partnership� for poverty alleviation in rural areas and added that the government has resolved to achieve the goal of economic reform.

On the occasion, the councillor of Mising Autonomous Council Johan Doley elaborated on various scopes of livelihood and entrepreneurship development in rural areas. He urged the TMPK activists to adopt agriculture and allied activities for enhancing their household income.

He also asked the TMPK members to spearhead economic movement in rural areas for furthering the economic status of the Mising tribes.

The resource persons during the workshops suggested the TMPK members to undergo skill development training and adopt income-generating activities through agriculture, horticulture, pisciculture and animal husbandry.

They also suggested creation of self-employment avenues and thereby show the path of economic self-sustenance by adopting entrepreneurship activities, including handloom, handicraft, agriculture and allied activities in a scientific manner.

It may be mentioned here that the TMPK, which was earlier known as North East Frontier Agency (NEFA) Students� Union and constituted in 1971, was renamed as TMPK (Mising Students� Union) in 1982.

The TMPK leaders in the four-day general conference made an assessment of their achievements during its 48-year-long journey. Their political movement finally yielded an elected autonomous body for the tribe, i.e., Mising Autonomous Council, with its headquarter at Gogamukh in Dhemaji district. Being a political organisation which offers support to different national and regional parties from time to time, the TMPK has been demanding successive governments for inclusion of the Mising Council in the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution of India.

Among other dignitaries, All Assam Tribal Sangha general secretary Aditya Khaklary, Jonai MLA Bhuban Pegu, senior veterinary officer Dr Ghana Doley, besides eminent Mising citizens and folk artistes participated in various programmes during the four-day conference.
