Agra: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday handed appointment letters of jobs to 1,000 trainees as part of the state’s ambitious skill development program.

He also gave away cheques of Rs.30,000 each under the state’s Kanya Vidhya Dhan scheme and LED bulbs to 100 girls.

Later he signed MOUs with reputed companies for providing jobs to skilled trainees under different categories.

The two-hour long program was held at the Taj Nature Walk against the backdrop of the Taj Mahal.

Speaking on the occasion, Akhilesh Yadav said Uttar Pradesh had become the first state in the country to implement the skill development policy and had given a big push to its “sabko hunar, sabko kaam” (skill for everyone, job for everyone) for the segment of the population aged between 14 and 35.

Asserting that the state was well poised for all round development, he said its most ambitious project – the 300-km-long Agra-Lucknow six lane highway – was progressing well and would be extended to Ghazipur, while the Luckow Metro was being given top priority.

He said the interests of farmers had been taken care of and the construction of new mandis for food grains, and infrastructural development projects were receiving a big push. As many as 17 lakh laptops had been distributed and the ‘Samajwadi’ pension to 45 lakh poor women was a world record, he added.

Vocational Education and Skill Development Minister Abhishek Mishra said that so far 46 lakh youth had registered and two lakh already trained at the 1,769 training centers. (IANS)

Guwahati, Assam, September 8, 2017: The Assam government on Thursday signed a MoU with Google India to take Internet connectivity to the remotest part of the north-eastern state.

Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said the government would work to provide Internet connections to 26,000 villages and 1,500 tea garden areas in Assam under the MoU and thus increase digital literacy.

Information Technology Secretary Nitin Khare and Google India Country Head (Policy) Chetan Krishnaswami signed the Memorandum of Understanding in the presence of Sonowal.

“Technology rules the roost in the 21st century and the state government has upped the ante to use technology to carry forward the fruits of development to the remotest parts of Assam,” the Chief Minister said.

He said the ties with Google was a way forward to strongly pitch Guwahati as a natural gateway to the South-East Asian countries.

Sonowal said his government in sync with the Centre was working for the success of Startup initiative but the success of such programmes sans technology would be a distant dream.

“The MoU will be used as a launchpad to achieve the state government’s vision of women empowerment, skill development, and universal education,” he said.

The Chief Minister asked the Information Technology Department to take steps to make technology acceptable and favourable among the rural populace so as to catalyse rural development. (IANS)
