Govt Boosted Jobs in All Sectors: PM Modi

Modi hands out job letters to 51K youths

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the BJP-led government at the Centre had created employment opportunities by strengthening the traditional sectors as well as new sectors such as renewable energy, space, automation and defence exports.

Virtually addressing a "Rozgar Mela" after the distribution of appointment letters to over 51,000 appointees in different government departments and ministries, the Prime Minister said, "Today, India is equipping its youths with skills and education to harness emerging opportunities. India's trajectory and the pace of its progress are generating new employment prospects across all sectors."

The Prime Minister noted his government and states ruled by the BJP and its allies have been holding Rozgar Mela since October last year, and lakhs of youth have been given appointment letters so far.

He stated that Rozgar Melas organised in various states and Union territories are signs of the government’s commitment towards the future of the youth, where work is underway in mission mode.

“We are not only providing employment but also maintaining a transparent system in place,” the Prime Minister emphasised.

Modi mentioned that the government is making an effort to not only streamline the processes but also restructure the examination procedure.

The Prime Minister underlined that the time taken for recruitment under the staff selection cycle has also been reduced to half. “The overall time between the notification of employment and the issuance of the employment letter has been significantly reduced,” he said.

Speaking about certain examinations under SSC, the Prime Minister informed the audience that the exams are now being conducted in 13 different regional languages apart from Hindi and English, making it easier for those aspirants to break the language barrier.

Referring to the speed of development that is creating newer job opportunities in every sector, he mentioned Dhordo village, which has been awarded the best tourism village by the United Nations and world heritage site recognition for the Hoysala temple complex and Shanti Niketan.

“These developments and increased tourism will create new opportunities for the youth. Similarly, strides in sports are also creating new avenues,” Modi said.

The Prime Minister said that the government is strengthening the traditional sectors, providing employment opportunities, while also promoting new sectors such as renewable energy, space, automation and defence exports.

He also talked about the resurgence of khadi, which has registered a sale of more than Rs 1.25-lakh crores compared to a mere Rs 30,000 crores 10 years ago. He said it has led to the creation of many jobs in the Khadi and village industry sectors, especially benefiting women.

Modi said that any competitive advantage of any country needs the power of youth to be fully realised and mentioned the initiatives of skilling and education that are equipping the youth to take full advantage of the new opportunities.

Noting that the creation of employment opportunities for the youth is an important part of the nation-building process that will pave the way for India to become a developed nation, he emphasised that it is the recruits who will take the government schemes forward and implement them on the ground.

“Today, you all are becoming important allies in our journey of nation-building,” the Prime Minister remarked as he urged them to contribute with all their might to realising India’s goal.
