Vekhotalu spoke from economics perspective while Rokovili spoke in relation to the pandemic that happened two years ago. Benchilo Lotha spoke from the perspective of gender for the unemployment among the Naga youth, an update from the college stated.

 Through the discussions, the students observed that ‘government job’ is not the only job and the educated Naga youth must venture out into other avenues for employment. The rising rate of unemployment in Nagaland should not be increased each year with passing out of graduates from higher educational institutions, it read.
