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)

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati and Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav will hold a joint press conference here on Saturday when the alliance between them for the coming Lok Sabha polls is likely to be announced.

An invitation, jointly signed by SP General Secretary Rajendra Chowdhary and BSP General Secretary Satish Chandra Mishra, has been circulated to the media for the press conference at a five-star hotel here.

Informed sources said that the two former Chief Ministers might formally announce the formation of the alliance for the Lok Sabha polls and also share the seat-sharing formula.

A tactical alliance between SP and BSP – once sworn enemies – helped them defeat the BJP in Lok Sabha by-elections in Gorakhpur and Phulpur last year. The two parties also backed the candidate of RLD-led by Ajit Singh to win the Kairana Lok Sabha constituency.

Four-time Chief Minister Mayawati flew into Lucknow late on Thursday and is likely to deliberate with her party leaders on Friday before sealing the deal with SP.

A senior party leader said that while the SP and BSP will share 37 seats each, they will leave two for Ajit Singh’s Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD).

The alliance might also leave two seats, Amethi and Rae Bareli, for the Congress to enable Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi to contest from there.

These were the only two seats the Congress won in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls in which the BSP drew a blank and SP managed to win five seats, again won by members of the Samajwadi Party’s ‘first family’.

The BJP swept 71 seats while its ally Apna Dal got two seats in a four-way contest.

If the BSP, SP and RLD join hands, it may emerge as a formidable alliance against the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. (IANS)
