Electricity shortage

He mentioned that despite generation of electricity by different sources such as hydroelectric, thermal, atomic, wind mill and by bagasse in sugar industries, there is a shortage of electricity in the country. Since most the participants are from rural areas, this training can be optimally used in rural areas, he said.

He said that by adopting honesty, sincerity and hard work, youth could mould their future for better living and for the progress of the society.

He advised participants not to waste the knowledge acquired in training. Dr Mahadevaiah said that during recruitment, preference will be given to candidates who have undergone such skill development programmes.
