TOI: 4 NE states top country’s ‘reading chart’
SHILLONG: A recent report released by Union human resource development minister MM PallamRaju in New Delhi has revealed that youth from the northeast top the “reading chart” in the country.
The reading of “leisure or non-text books” among the literate youth is the special focus of the study. As compared to the rest of the country, the performance of NE states is much superior. In fact, the region has performed much better than Maharashtra, which is the topmost state of the country in terms of economic well-being.
The results revealed that Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram are at the top slot with 67 per cent (85% urban and 59% rural readers) followed by Assam with 41 per cent (55% urban, 38% rural readers). “It shows that these states are far ahead of Maharashtra with 34 per cent (39% urban, 28% rural) readers. The rest of the NE states, along with other states, are at the bottom of the table with only 24 per cent and 23 per cent readers respectively,” a state government official quoted from the report.
