“Churachandpur JAC now demand Lamka district’

Imphal, April 13:  Chief Minister Shri N. Biren Singh has said that skill development is a must to empower the youths of the State.
He was speaking as the chief guest at the inauguration of a PMKVY Training Centre at Thangmeiband DM College Road (opposite ABC Godown)  today.
Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) is a flagship scheme of the Union Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE). The objective of this Skill Certification Scheme is to enable a large number of youth to take up industry-relevant skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood.
The Chief Minister said that as per the records provided by different Employment Exchanges, the State now has more than 7 lakh unemployed youths.
Conveying that Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has a dream to provide employment to every Indian, Shri Biren informed that the State Cabinet had decided to operationalise Manipur Skill Development Mission under Labour and Employment Department to make Shri Modi’s dream a reality.
He said that even private firms would provide jobs to many youths if the Government takes up the onus to give them skill training.
In order to promote entrepreneurship, the State Government would issue an order to all the Departments to effect the maximum use of ‘Make-in-Manipur’ products in their offices, he added.
Regarding State Government’s initiative to check corruption, the Chief Minister said that the Anti-Corruption Cell set up by the Government had started receiving many complaints.
Stating that some of the cases had been forwarded to DCs and SPs concerned for further action, the Chief Minister said that a Monitoring Committee would be formed to assess the activities of the Anti-Corruption Cell.
Speaking on Churachandpur issue, the Chief Minister said that the State Government is not in a position to fulfil the demand for Lamka district as raised by JAC Against Anti-Tribal Bills for the time being.
He said that the State Government had told the JAC that the demand can be considered after the District Boundary Commission submits its report.
He assured that the government will not promised anything to appease some section of the people simply by sayng yes to them.
Education and Labour and Employment Minister Shri Th. Radheshyam and PMKVY National Co-ordinator Shri Hemanta Larma attended the function as the guests of honour and Manipur Medical Council President Prof. Sinam Rajendra as the president at the function.
Speaking at the occasion, Shri Th. Radheshyam observed that there is a need to give emphasis to train the youths as per industry requirements/demands. Organising skill development programmes for youths would not serve any purpose if they are not trained according to the requirements of the companies/firms, he said.
During his speech, he also mentioned about the importance of using ‘Make-in-Manipur’ products in order to promote entrepreneurship in the State. He further said that there is a need to impart awareness on various welfare schemes being taken up by the Government.
