He said, "Maharashtra as a state must come forward in order to provide technical and management skills to support the students of North-Eastern States and make facilities available for them. The eight-states of the north-east are rich in their heritage and have always received high tourist attraction. He emphasized on the potential of the youth in the north-east region and added, I strongly recommend education institutes like WeSchool to come forward and encourage students and specially girls to learn new skills and compete at the national level."

Prof Dr Uday Salunkhe, Group Director, WeSchool, spoke about the role of education institutions in the inclusion of North-East India. He said, "As a representative of the education fraternity, I believe we should focus on three mantras of Leadership, Innovation and Entrepreneurship that will help to nurture and develop the youth community and the nation. WeSchool believes in building Global Citizen Leaders, and as an institute we work towards instilling leadership skills in youth community and the budding entrepreneurs.  With this in mind, we have initiated Project Netrutva, under which we groom students coming from economically weaker backgrounds and offer them an opportunity to attain management education to facilitate in building their career."

If we as a nation take the leadership role in making changes in some key policies to improve inclusiveness, we will soon see youth believe and participate in the change and transformation we want to see."
