Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath while addressing a gathering on Sunday morning revealed his government’s plan to provide shelter to the people of the state. Adityanath said that this target will be achieved under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. The UP CM said that as many as 48 lakh people in the rural areas of Uttar Pradesh do not have houses to live. He added that to solve this problem the government is trying to build as many as 10 lakh houses within next 12 months under the PM Awas Yojana, news agency ANI reported. “48,00,000 people in rural UP do not have houses. We are aiming to build 10,00,000 houses there under PM Awas Yojana this year,” Yogi Adityanath was quoted as saying by ANI.
These statements have come one day after Union minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy while addressing a joint press conference with Yogi Adityanath had said that the Centre will ensure large scale employment opportunities for the youth in Uttar Pradesh in the next five years through skill development. “Centre is working on a big plan under which it will be ensured that the quality and standard of all ITIs (government and private) were up to the mark,” the Union Minister for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship said.
At the same event, Adityanath had said that his government will train 10 lakh youngsters this year under the skill development programme and the target for the next five years is 70 lakh youth. Adityanath said the government would give a boost to traditional industries in the state like Banarsi saree, Lucknavi chikan, Bhadohi carpet, Moradabad brass, Agra petha (a type of sweet), Ferozabad glass bangles, Kannauj perfume and Gorakhpur terracotta through the skill development programme.
