There is no longer any need to leave Bengal for jobs: Mamata Banerjee
Youth given vocational job training were handed over appointment letters today by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at the Netaji Indoor Stadium. She also spoke about projects being implemented in districts across the state.
Highlights of her speech:
After coming to power, I had dreamt that Bengal would become the best in the world. Kanyashree has won a United Nations award, Durga Puja has been recognised by UNESCO and junior school education in Bengal has been adjudged the best in the country. May Bengal continue to progress.
There is no longer any need to leave Bengal for jobs. Jobs will now come to your doorsteps.
A total of around 30,000 youth would be given appointment letters.
While unemployment has reached a 45-year-high in the country, employment has increased by 40 per cent in Bengal.
Durga Puja creates business opportunities worth Rs 40,000 crore; craftspeople and decorators earn a lot.
Most people have no idea about the number of MSMEs in the state. There are 90 lakh of them, employing, directly and indirectly, 1 crore 36 lakh.
There are 200 industrial parks being created. Rs 72,000 crore has been invested in a project in Raghunathpur, which would create a lot of jobs.
They Railways is being sold off; in fact, they are selling off everything. So how will they create jobs?
I am feeling good to see boys and girls from Bengal getting jobs across the country. But I wish that you all eventually return. There is no place better than your home. Even if you don’t have much, being with all your family brings a different kind of happiness.
