Swami Vivekananda Youth Employment Week

In a span of a week GoG helps 65000 youths getting job in private sector

Leave the hunger for white-collar job, value the hard work and employment-based skills: CM to youths

The Chief Minister Narendra Modi handed out job letters to about 25000 youths of southern Gujarat today in a function held at Surat as a part of Swami Vivekananda Youth Employment Week.

Earlier, during this week, the State government had organized three such functions at Rajkot, Vadodara and Surat and acted as a catalyst for the youths to get jobs in private sector. In all, 65000 youths have been helped in getting jobs.

Speaking on the occasion the Chief Minister asked the youths to leave the hunger for a white-collar job. “Youths can only secure their dreams if they value the importance of hard work and develop employment-based skills”, he said.

The Chief Minister said that the youth who possesses skill will never have to remain jobless. Job opportunities are limited to those who possess mere degrees. And so, the state government has changed the very fabric of the way the skill development training is being imparted. The state government desires to create a pool of skilled youth power that will cater to the real needs of industries.

Recalling the past condition of the ITIs the Chief Minister said that there was a time when youths used to feel shame in taking ITI courses. But the state government has helped the ITIs in gaining respect in the society. Now, the situation has been reversed and the industries are willingly coming to ITI pass-outs to select them for jobs, he said.

During just a decade, the number of ITIs has increased from 274 to 1068 and the number of ITI seats has been raised from 77000 to five lakh. The state government has even come out with a decision that will help ITI pass-outs to directly pursue diploma and degree courses. This has opened the door of higher education for them, said the Chief Minister.

The Chief Minister also gave outlines of the vast opportunities available to skilled youths possessing the industrial skills. A huge demand for the skilled technicians is going to be open up in the fields like ship making industries, ceramic industry, solar energy, wind energy, automobiles, aviation, among others, he said.

In the past, the employment exchanges were merely registering the names unemployed. But during last decade the employment exchanges of Gujarat has become instrumental in giving government jobs to around three lakh youths. About 65000 youths got job within a week and this number will exceed the figure of one lakh, said the Chief Minister.

Assembly Speaker Ganapat Vasava said the Gujarat government has showed its farsightedness by taking care of the skill development among youths. Gujarat is on top since last eight years in providing employment through employment exchanges.

Labour and Employment Minister Vajubhai Vala, Minister of State Liladhar Vaghela and Principal Secretary to Labour and Employment Department P.Panirvel also spoke on the occasion and congratulated the youths who are going to start their career.

Panchayat Minister Narottam Patel, Revenue Minister Anandiben Patel, Forest and Environment Minister Mangubhai Patel, Surat MP Darshnaben Jardosh, Navsari MP C.R.Patil, MLAs Kirit Patel, Kishor Vankavala, R.C.Patel, and government office bearers were present on the occasion.

Namaste!

It is a delight to address this young and energetic gathering. In front of me is a global family, with all the beautiful diversity of our planet.

The Global Citizen Movement uses music and creativity to bring the world together. Music, like sports, has an inherent ability to unite. The great Henry David Thoreau once said, and I quote: "When I hear music, I fear no danger. I am in-vulnerable. I see no foe. I am related to the earliest of times, and to the latest."

Music has a calming impact on our life. It calms the mind and the entire body. India is home to many musical traditions. In every state, in every region, there are many different styles of music. I invite you all to come to India and discover our musical vibrancy anddiversity.

Friends,

For almost two years now, humanity is battling a once in a lifetime global pandemic. Our shared experience of fighting the pandemic has taught us we are stronger and better when we are together. We saw glimpses of this collective spirit when our COVID-19 warriors, doctors, nurses, medical staff gave their best in fighting the pandemic. We saw this spirit in our scientists and innovators, who created new vaccines in record time. Generations will remember the manner in which human resilience prevailed over everything else.

Friends,

In addition to COVID, other challenges remain. Among the most persistent of the challenges is poverty. Poverty cannot be fought by making the poor more dependent on governments. Poverty can be fought when the poor start seeing governments as trusted partners. Trusted partners who will give them the enabling infrastructure to forever break the vicious circle of poverty.

Friends,

When power is used to empower the poor, they get the strength to fight poverty. And therefore, our efforts include banking the unbanked, providing social security coverage to millions, giving free and quality healthcare to 500 million Indians. It would make you happy that about 30 million houses have been built for the homeless in our cities and villages. A house is not only about shelter. A roof over the head gives people dignity. Another mass movement taking place in India is to providedrinking water connection to every household.The Government is spending over a trillion dollars for next-generation infrastructure.For several months last year and now, free food grains have been provided to 800 millions of our citizens.These, and several other efforts will give strength to the fight against poverty.

Friends,

The threat of climate change is looming large before us.The world will have to accept that the any change in the global environment first begins with the self. The simplest and most successful way to mitigate climate change is to lead lifestyles that are in harmony with nature.

The great Mahatma Gandhi is widely known for his thoughts on peace and non-violence. But, do you know that he is also among the greatest environmentalists of the world. He led a zero carbon footprints lifestyle. In whatever he did, he put the welfare of our planet above everything else.He highlighted the doctrine of trusteeship, where we all are trustees of the planet with the duty of caring for it.

Today, India is the only G-20 nation that is on track with its Paris commitments. India is also proud to have brought the world together under the banner of the International Solar Alliance and the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure.

Friends,

We believe in the development of India for the development of humankind.I want to conclude by quoting the Rig Veda, which is perhaps one of the world's oldest scriptures.Its verses are still the golden standard in nurturing global citizens.

The Rig Veda says:

संगच्छध्वंसंवदध्वंसंवोमनांसिजानताम्

देवाभागंयथापूर्वेसञ्जानानाउपासते||

समानोमन्त्रःसमितिःसमानीसमानंमनःसहचित्तमेषाम्।

समानंमन्त्रम्अभिमन्त्रयेवःसमानेनवोहविषाजुहोमि।।

समानीवआकूति: समानाहृदयानिव: |

समानमस्तुवोमनोयथाव: सुसहासति||

It means:

Let us move forward together, speaking in one voice;

Let our minds be in agreement and let us share what we have, like the Gods share with each other.

Let us have a shared purpose and shared minds. Let us pray for such unity.

Let us have shared intentions and aspirations that unify us all.

Friends,

what can be a better manifesto for a global citizen than this?May we keep working together

for a kind, just and inclusive planet.

Thank you.

Thank you very much.

Namaste.
