Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that they have shown the resolve and given employment in government sector to over 2.50 lakh youths in almost 2.5 years.
“The emphasis of this government is to connect people with government schemes. When people connect with schemes, the overall impact becomes huge. This has reflected in 2.5-years rule of this BJP government in which 2.51 lakh youths were given government jobs,” Yogi said while addressing the inaugural function of Madhyamik Vidyalaya in Basia Village in Gorakhpur on Thursday.
He said that the state government has launched a new scheme for the youths, under which industries will connect with ITI or Skill Development Centre associated with its sector and will offer apprenticeship to the youth. For this, the government will also provide financial support of 2,500 per month to the youths, he said.
The Chief Minister said through skill development and vocational education, youths will become economically self-sufficient. For this, the government has made provisions to create hubs for the apprentice scheme in every district. Over 40 lakh youths with traditional expertise have benefitted from employment opportunities that were created through investments made in the state.
He said that efforts have been made to speed up the development work and to accelerate infrastructural development programmes to new heights. “We are refining the skills of our youths so that they can take up jobs both within and outside the country,” he said.
Yogi said the government is providing uniforms, bags, books and woollens free of cost to one crore children of Basic Shiksha Parishad in the state. Apart from this, the government is providing basic facilities to the people through efficient utilisation of funds for the development of villages.
He said that more than 1.20 lakh Basic Shiksha Parishad schools have been developed on the lines of convent schools.
Playground and open gyms are being developed in the villages for the development of youths. This will help children become healthier and then they will be able to effectively contribute to nation-building.
Youths are the symbol of our energy and the state government has implemented many programmes for them, he said. The Chief Minister said Gallant Group has started several programmes in two gram panchayats at a cost of Rs 2.5 crore. This shows that how an organisation can connect with the schemes and take them to greater heights.
He said the state government has developed a mechanism to expand schemes and benefit people at the last mile.
