Indian PM Modi distributes 71,000 letters at employment mela
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi virtually distributed appointment letters to 71,000 new recruits in the Rashtriya Rozgar Mela (Employment Mela) and said that Startups have created more than 40 lakh direct and indirect jobs in the country.
"Startups have created more than 40 lakh direct and indirect jobs; this shows India's resilient startup culture. Today India is the fastest-growing economy in the world. The policy and strategy being followed by today's New India have opened up new possibilities and opportunities in the country," PM Modi said on the occasion.
Stating that over 70,000 youth have got government jobs in various departments of the central government on the day of Baisakhi today, the Prime Minister said that the process of giving govt jobs in NDA and BJP-ruled states is going on at a fast pace.
"Appointment letters have been handed over to more than 22 thousand teachers in Madhya Pradesh yesterday," he said.
Mentioning the growing Defence sector in the country, PM Modi said that India has exported Defence equipment worth Rs 15,000 crore.
Detailing the self-reliance in various sectors of the country including drones, the Prime Minister said that youth are engaging in new-age technologies.
"New India's youth are increasingly involved in drone manufacturing and becoming drone pilots. For decades our children used to play with toys imported from abroad. We started promoting the indigenous toy industry, and this created new employment opportunities for our Yuva Shakti. The capital investment in infrastructure projects propels employment generation & creates diverse opportunities for Yuva Shakti," he said.
He lauded the health sector in the country and said that it is becoming the best example of employment generation.
The newly inducted appointees will also get an opportunity to train themselves through Karmayogi Prarambh, which is an online orientation course for all new appointees in various Government departments.
