Vijay stated that the pool of talents of North Eastern states have not been given bigger platform nor infrastructure in sports and education by the Government for so long. As a result, there is huge drainage of talents to different parts of the country. Many young people due to lack of platform chooses the wrong path. "I want that all political party should come together leaving behind their political ideas for infrastructure development in the North East in the field of education for International Degrees in engineering, Technology, Hospitality and science and other spheres where students from the south East Asian countries can come for study", he said."It can be done, one can do it, it only needs will", he added.
