J'khand CM urges public & pvt sector to participate in JSDM

Press Trust of India  |  Ranchi 

Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das today appealed to public and private sector to contribute to the Jharkhand Skill Development Mission for making the youth of the state skilled, independent and employed.

"I appeal to the Central Coalfields Limited, Damodar Valley Corporation and others to set up more Industrial Training Institutes in the state to train the youth and the government will support them as skill development is one of its priorities," Das said here.

Greeting everyone on National Youth Day at a workshop organised by Jharkhand Skill Development Mission (JSDM), the chief minister directed government officials to approach both public and private sectors for involving them in the mission.

"There should be more investment in skill training and education along with building up morals," he said.

Asking to make "squads of skilled hands," Das said the Tata group has agreed to open its branch of Tata Consultancy Service in Jharkhand.

Urging the officials to come up with a blueprint covering Dalits and other people, he said JSDM would also help in rooting out extremism.

Referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's slogan - "sab ka saath, sab ka vikas (development for all)," Das said, "Today is the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda. The day inspires, encourages, and motivates to extract power from the youth."

"Jharkhand will be the number one state in the country following this Mission," he said, pledging to develop the state in the next five years to fulfill dreams of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, under whose tenure the state was created.
