SILCHAR, March 13 - World Plumbing Day was celebrated at the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Kendra (PMKK) here on Wednesday.
In a release issued to the media, Ashmita Goswami, public relations officer of the centre, said that the centre under its plumbing sector aims to train more than 250 candidates across Barak Valley.
�The Ministry of Skill Development, Government of India, has been our constant motivation in honing the skills of the students at the centre. We are focusing on improving the skill sets of the students and enhance their employment opportunities. We are also looking forward to train more than 250 candidates from Barak Valley in the coming days,� Goswami said.
�At the Gandhi Mela here, the PMKK Silchar unveiled Hunar Haat, where our trainees have put up a campaign on �Save Water & It will save you�,� she said.
Narayan Kurmi, a student of the centre, shared his views, saying, �Assam is always at its apex when it comes to floods. It has been a reason of distress and agony for the entire region. I believe that proper drainage system would help lessen our problems. The plumbing (general) course is not only providing me lessons about the profession but is also helping me identify our local problems and find measures to solve them.�
