GUWAHATI: Union Minister Sarbananda Sonowal distributed appointment letters, even as PM Modi joined virtually, at the Rozgar Mela held at Maligaon here on Saturday.
As many as 101 candidates received appointment letters and they were appointed into Railways, Indo Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), Home Affairs, GSI, Ports among others.
Addressing the gathering via video conferencing, the Prime Minister noted that the journey of Rozgar Melas has reached an important milestone, as Rozgar Melas started in October last year providing appointment letters for government jobs to lakhs of youths in various. The Prime Minister congratulated the appointees and their families.
Speaking on the occasion, the Union Minister of Ports, Shipping & Waterways and Ayush, Sarbananda Sonowal said, “With the growing and sustained development in India under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji, the successful hosting of Rozgar Melas over the months is a true testament of the gainful employment created by the government to sharpen the talent pool of the government sector. As we gather here on a happy note, when you will receive the appointment letters, it must be remembered that we have a great responsibility towards our future generations to build a nation of potentialities, of responsible growth, sustained development so that by 2047, India becomes a completely developed country. As you work in various capacities in different organisations, you must not lose sight of the ultimate goal of Amrit Kaal - another inspiring vision shared by PM modi ji - which is to make India an Atmanirbhar country and a truly developed country by 2047. I thank our honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji for setting up some ambitious projects - some may be ahead of the curve - but with considerable sway over the ultimate goal of an Atmanirbhar Bharat by the end of Amrit Kaal. Let us all strive hard, committed to attain this goal set by Modi ji and make India a truly atmanirbhar country.”
