Lucknow: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday launched the ‘Aatmanirbhar Rojgar Abhiyan’ that will provide employment to 1.25 crore workers in Uttar Pradesh.
The Prime Minister, who launched the scheme through video conferencing, lauded the role played by Uttar Pradesh in combating the Covid-19 pandemic and making the state ‘Aatmanirbhar’ (self-reliant).
“UP has a population of 24 crore and could have multiplied the Corona crisis, but Yogi Adityanath, with his untiring efforts, managed to restrict the spread of the virus. The population of UP is equal to the combined population of four European countries, the UK, France, Italy and Spain. These four countries have reported 1.3 lakh deaths, while UP, with a similar population, has recorded only 600 deaths, which speaks volumes for the efforts of the state government,” the Prime Minister said.
The ‘Aatmanirbhar UP Rojgar Abhiyan’ is focused on providing jobs, promoting local entrepreneurship and creating partnerships with industrial associations and other organisations to create employment opportunities.
