Haryana Finance Minister, Capt Abhimanyu said that all the ITIs of Haryana would soon start courses to generate skilled artisans in the field of construction work related to bricks, wood, iron, plumbing, tiles, paint etc. Capt Abhimanyu was addressing the public gathering as a chief guest on the occasion of Bhagwan Vishwakarma Day function organised by Panchal Samiti at village Badala in Hisar. On this occasion, he also announced a grant of Rs 11 lakh for the construction of Bhagwan Vishwakarma Bhavan in village Badala.
He said that since 70 years of Independent India, no particular focus was given to develop the traditional skill and art of this country. Famous temples built thousands of years ago, Taj Mahal being one of the seven wonders of the world and the recently constructed tallest statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel established at Gujarat are the best examples of creativity and skills of our artisans. But these traditional disciplines are not taught with modern perspective in any institute. For the skill development of youth, the present state government has established Haryana Bhagwan Vishwakarma Skill University in district Palwal where work on refining the traditional art and skill would be done. The government has decided to develop the skills of the youth to make them employable.
He said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself comes from working class of people. The Prime Minister is well aware about the problems of working class and he has done works to implement the message of Bhagwan Vishwakarma in this country.
He is the first Prime Minister of the country who did efforts for the youth of our country to be well versed in one or the other skill. He knows that only 10th, 12th or college education cannot provide adequate employment to youth, thus he has established skill development centres across the country where the youth can learn the skills as per their choice and get employment accordingly.
While announcing a grant of Rs 11 lakh for the construction of Bhagwan Vishwakarma Bhavan in village Badala, the Finance Minister urged the villagers from every household, religion or caste to collectively support for the construction of this building. When all the 36 communities would cooperate for the construction of this building, it would bring a sense of belongingness, he added.
The Minister said that soon a drinking water project would be set up in this village and the villagers would be able to get benefits from this project within next three or four months. Similarly, an irrigation project worth Rs 2.5 crore has been approved for this village and the funds are released. Capt Abhimanyu urged the people to support Mhara Gaon-Jagmag Gaon Yojana, under which 2800 villages of the state are already getting round the clock power supply, so that village would be supplied 24 hour power.
