K.R.Pete, March 19: The youth of the Mandya district should step outside of their native places to make use of the job opportunities that exist across the country and in foreign countries, said Dr. C. N. Ashwatha Narayana, Minister for Skill Development, Entrepreneurship & Livelihood.
Speaking at the Mega Job Fair organised at the Government Engineering College premises on Saturday, he said, “Mandya being chiefly an agrarian district, the youth of the region after completion of their studies usually would choose to search livelihood opportunities by staying in their native places only. Instead, they should venture out to make most of the job opportunities and also gain worldly knowledge.”
“The government is introducing many programmes to impart skill to the youth and to increase the livelihood opportunities for the unorganised working community. The government is implementing programmes with the intention of bringing about uniform economic dynamism in both rural and urban areas”, Narayana told.
Department of Skill Development, Entrepreneurship and Livelihood, Sanjeevinig- National Rural Livelihood Mission, Mandya Employment Exchange Office, and Government Engineering College, KR Pete jointly organised this job fair. Over 12,000 job aspirants participated. Minister Narayana, also commended the efforts of Dr.K.C.Narayana Gowda, Minister and Local MLA for taking interest in conducting the job fair.
