Assembly elections are due in Madhya Pradesh later this year and the state government is making every effort to woo different sections of the society. State’s youth policy and the launching of youth portal are also a part of this episode. Presenting the youth policy at the Yuva Mahapanchayat organized in the capital Bhopal, the Chief Minister said that the youth of the state will not have to pay separate fees every time they apply for a job. He said, ‘No matter how many forms of employment you fill, you will have to pay the fee only once.’
He also said that Madhya Pradesh government will bring Mukhyamantri Yuva Kaushal Karmayi Yojana. Describing it as the world’s biggest apprenticeship scheme, he said that youths who could not find employment after class 12 would be trained in various fields and the state government would provide them Rs 8,000 per month during the training period itself. Registration for this will start from June 1 and youth in the age group of 15 to 29 will be eligible for this.
The Chief Minister also said that the students of government schools lag behind in the NEET exam for admission in medical colleges, so the state government will provide five percent reservation to the students of government schools in the merit list prepared on the basis of NEET result. He said, ‘I am not against English but English cannot be imposed in Madhya Pradesh either.’
It is noteworthy that Madhya Pradesh Sports and Youth Welfare Minister Yashodhara Raje had recently said in reply to a question in the Vidhansabha that till January 31, 38.92 lakh unemployed were registered on the employment portal of the state. On the other hand, State Youth Congress President Vikrant Bhuria termed this whole exercise as an attempt to deceive the youth.
