Noting that freebies and subsidies can be provided in the beginning, he said it was the responsibility of the government to create jobs or self-employment for its youth. The UPA government has a clear vision of creating jobs for its youth. But there are hurdles. If the branch of a bank is opened, then a question is being raised..., he said. A friend of mine commented saying by opening bank branches, people have been made debtors. There is nothing wrong in taking loans for creating business and self-employment. Only taking bribe is wrong and not a loan..., he said. He said it was a genuine demand of the people seeking loans for various purposes like education, housing and agricultural activities. The finance minister, who extended loan for youths who had started a self-help group (SHG), said youths should form more SHGs. The countries where people were self-employed had the prospects of being a strong country. I have strong faith in that, he said.
The youths should choose a path and continue on that without any fear, having strong faith in their path of self-development and self-employment, he added.
