Bhubaneswar, May 1, 2018: On May 5,
Odisha will be presented with the Prime Minister’s award as the Best State in
the country in skill development of rural youth.
“Our state has left behind all major
states with second and third placed Kerala and Andhra Pradesh way below us in
all parameters,” said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik in his Facebook page.
The CM said Odisha has successfully
trained and ensured employment for a record 96,000 rural youth under Deen Dayal
Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY).
“Our Odisha Rural Development and
Marketing (ORMAS) with its out-of-the-box initiatives for ‘Quality with Quantity’
accounts for one-fifth of National target and many reputed national and
multinational companies are preferring our skilled youth. More heartening is
the fact that other states are studying the Odisha model to replicate it for
skilling their youth,” said Patnaik.
The Chief Minister congratulated Panchayati
Raj Department and Team ORMAS for the achievement.
“Let us continue to march ahead with
collective efforts to give shape to our vision of making Skilled In Odisha, the
Best in the World. And, the world will ask, “Are you skilled in Odisha!,” urges
the CM.
