I am not against government employment or service holders, there is need of employment to run the administration. But every youth whatever higher education qualification is, should have a way of becoming self-reliant.”
“In 2018 also, I have told that the youths should set up at least a betel leaf shop in order to earn some money instead of sitting at home waiting for government job. Here is Kishore Majumder, he had set up a shop of selling betel leaf in 2019 by borrowing a loan of Rs 10,000 under Panchayat scheme. Now he earn about Rs 14,000 per month”, said former CM.
He also said “I will say, youths should engaged themselves with any work. There is abundance of windows open for youths to earn their livelihood, initiatives like ease of doing business, simplification of rules, GST introduced, facilities in the field of rubber, paddy, etc were taken.”
