“PM Modi is not only an inspiration for the people of India; he is also an inspiration for the world. Today, the world views him as a global leader who can bring change. The Skill Department for the Youth was started by PM Modi in 2015, and today, on PM Modi’s birthday, we all have gathered here to flag off the ‘Skill Run’ event,” Fadnavis said.
“More than 5 lakh youth in the ITI sector from across Maharashtra are participating in the PM Skill scheme. In the last few years, under PM’s Rozgar Mela, we gave employment to over 3 lakh people, and our next target is to provide jobs to more than 5 lakh youth. We are revamping all the ITIs in Maharashtra and working towards creating employment opportunities outside Maharashtra,” he said.
