Telangana IT and Industries Minister K T Rama Rao today said that the state government was offering a variety of vocational training programs to the students of the state to their improve productivity and employability.
Speaking after inaugurating a new degree college, constructed at a cost of Rs 2.25 crore, and a Rythu Vedika built in memory of his grandparents at Gambhiraopet, in Rajanna Sircilla district, the minister promised to establish an institution that would provide "KG to PG education" on a single campus equipped with all the latest facilities, soon.
"Our government believes that students can avail themselves of better job opportunities when they have focused skillsets. We are invested in a policy of skilling, upskilling and reskilling the students of Telangana because it is extremely difficult for unskilled persons to find good employment opportunities. We believe that a focus on skilling will help the students excel in the future - they will be able to find secure and respectable livelihoods. That is why we offer skilling and training programs. Our commitment to this is evidenced by the fact that we will soon set up a degree college in Yellareddypet with all the latest facilities and a girls' hostel as well," he said.
"Ours is a welfare state. Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao has started 940 gurukul schools for EWS students. We offer fine rice to our students through the mid-day meal scheme to ensure that they remain healthy. We have also implemented schemes that allow marginalised students to pursue overseas education by providing financial assistance for the same. 14 lakh job opportunities were offered to the youth in the state. Our TSIPASS and T Hub initiatives also enable youngsters to easily start their own businesses," KTR added.
Later, while inaugurating the Rythu Vedika, the minister praised the government for its "pro-farmer" policies.
"We have always worked towards farmer welfare. Telangana is only the state in India to offer financial assistance to farmers through its Rythu Bandhu program. We also offer international-level facilities through our Rythu Vedikas where farmers find immense support - they are able to access information on MSP and various other agriculture-related issues, including on the latest agri-innovations," the minister said.
"Our intention is to give complete support to the farming community to boost their morale and to help them sell their produce at profitable prices. Our focus on developing the state's irrigation infrastructure has also benefitted many farmers in the state," KTR added.
