Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal Highlights Indian Youth Shifting from Job Seekers to Job Creators

On Tuesday, Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal emphasized the transformation of India’s youth from job seekers to job creators, particularly within the thriving start-up ecosystem. He asserted that the elimination of corruption from the government recruitment process has further empowered young individuals to pursue opportunities based solely on merit in their service to the nation.

Addressing a Rozgar Mela event, Sonowal stated, “Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji, the focus has been on instilling a mindset shift in the youth, encouraging them to transition from job seekers to job creators. Self-employment and entrepreneurship are increasingly preferred career choices.”

In the realm of start-ups, he reported that 2.6 lakh jobs were generated in 2022, with over 9 lakh jobs created since 2017. Sonowal, who also serves as the Union Minister for Ports, Shipping, and Waterways, asserted that corruption in government recruitment is now a thing of the past.

Those days are gone when the youth of our country had to combat corruption in the government job selection process during the Congress rule. The scourge of corruption in government recruitment has been systematically eradicated,” he declared.

Our youth are now offered a transparent opportunity to contribute to nation-building through government jobs, solely based on merit,” added Sonowal, who also oversees the Ayush ministry.

During the event, the Union Minister distributed 192 appointment letters, revealing that 8.18 lakh youths have entered government service through Rozgar Melas in nearly a year. Prime Minister Narendra Modi also participated in the Rozgar Mela, virtually distributing approximately 51,000 appointment letters to the newly recruited individuals. Rozgar Melas were conducted at 46 locations throughout the country.
