Double-engine governments bring jobs to ‘Rozgar Mela’: PM

PM Narendra Modi has described recruits under the ‘Rozgar Mela’ as his co-travellers in the country’s development. He said that the appointments made under the drive reflected the “double benefit of the double-engine government”.

The second edition of the Rozgar Mela, a month after the drive was launched, saw Modi distribute 71,056 job letters in various departments via video conferencing.

“This is the double benefit of the double-engine governments,” Modi said, citing similar initiatives undertaken over the past month in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, and Gujarat, and upcoming ones in Goa and Tripura. We intend to continue this drive in a sustained manner.”

The term “double engine” refers to the same party ruling both at the state and national levels. The BJP has used this term in various state elections.

Thousands of job letters have been distributed in Maharashtra and Gujarat in the past month alone. The Uttar Pradesh government also distributed job letters to youths a few days ago. Rozgar Melas are held in Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu, as well as Chandigarh, in which thousands of jobs have been distributed.

According to the PM, 60 lakh jobs are expected to be created owing to the government’s Performance-Linked Incentive program. The government and private sectors have endless potential to create new jobs. It is more important to note that these opportunities are arising in the cities and villages where the youth live. Youth no longer feel compelled to migrate and are capable of contributing to the development of their communities,” he said, adding that experts around the globe are optimistic about India’s growth and potential to become a manufacturing hub.

Modi announced the launch of an online orientation course called Karmayogi Prarambh module, encouraging recruits to provide feedback and suggestions on the portal like “colleagues and co-travellers”. “This course will be useful not only for your current career but for the remainder as well,” he added.

According to sources, 24,000 people were recruited by paramilitary forces in this round of recruitment, while 4,000 positions were filled by railways.
