Jharkhand has been blessed with abundance of mineral and natural resources but the state was still lagging behind because our people were not educated, unskilled. We are inviting people from outside as we are unable to utilise it in a proper manner, Murmu said
Inaugurating Jharkhand's first "Khadi Park" established by Jharkhand State Khadi and Gramudyog Board at Aamda in Seraikela-Kharswan district, the governor said proper utilisation of resources would help generate employment opportunities, improve the economic conditions of the people and also check migration.
Laying emphasis on education, the governor said our women were weak economically, socially and also not literate and we have to empower them by making the skilled and provide employment opportunities.
Speaking on the occasion, former Jharkhand chief minister Arjun Munda described khadi as sustainable and livelihood mission that help to enhance the index of happiness of the people.
He said the board was also promoting bee-keeping and already trained around 500 persons.
