Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today greeted the youth of the state on the occasion of World Youth Skills Day.
In a statement, he said, "Our government is striving to make available the fruits of Telangana's development to the youth in the present and in the future generations as well. This is done through proper plans and the implementation of the same. The industrial infrastructure of the region which was destroyed under the past rulers of undivided Andhra Pradesh has had to be built up again. Industry is being revived through development. Welfare schemes are also being implemented with gusto for the benefit of the people of the state."
"The action plan that has been implemented for the past seven years by our government has benefited both urban and rural youth. We aim to create wealth and distribute the same to the people. In Telangana, the situation is such that our youth can enjoy the fruits of living in a self-governed state - the growth of the irrigation and power sectors became a reality under the rule of the TRS. Artisans and farmers too are flourishing now," he added.
The CM also claimed that the government was "of the firm view that true development occurred when a qualitative change was seen in the lives of every section of society" and that development was, therefore, the top priority of the government.
"Our integrated development action plan has been yielding good results and has strengthened the rural economy. Rural youth can now find stable employment easily. In urban areas too, programs have been implemented to better the employment prospects of the youth. As part of our plan to bring holistic development to the state and its young people, we have created lakhs of jobs for youngsters in industries and the IT sector. In the government sector, more than 1.30 lakh jobs have been given to the youth so far. With the new zonal system
getting the green signal from the Centre, we will now be able to provide more jobs to rural youth. Further, the process of recruiting 50,000 more persons has also started. In the future, recruitment will be done as per a job calendar," he explained.
The TRS supremo then stated, "Our government puts in a lot of effort to create jobs. The youth too should, however, change with the times and should update their skillsets - the youth of our state is efficient. Skill development will take them a long way. They will be able to find good IT sector jobs. We are taking many steps to help them develop marketable skills. The state's IT policy is also framed to encourage young workers. We will always continue to work for youth welfare."
