Assam chief minister Conrad K Sangma and deputy chief minister Prestone Tynsong had an interaction meeting with the newly-inducted MCS officers at the Yojana Bhawan in Meghalaya Secretariat.
The meeting was also attended by the director of the Meghalaya Administrative Training Institute (MATI), Ram Kumar.
Speaking to the officer trainees, chief minister Conrad K Sangma said, “A large portion of the population of the country today is youth and Meghalaya too is a young state and to be inducted as young administrative officers during such a time is exciting but comes with a lot of responsibilities.”
“The expectations and aspirations of the youth today are different and as young officers you will be able to connect to the youth population in a better way, always keep in mind the changing environment and the bigger picture, having a purpose, passion and a goal while you discharge your duties,” Sangma said.
Chief minister Sangma also called upon the officers to be grounded and keep their humility at the forefront stating that every and any post is crucial for the development of the state.
Earlier, deputy chief minister Prestone Tynsong exhorted the officers to be humble, honest and hardworking while maintaining rapport and public relations with the masses.
