New Delhi: Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi on Friday released Uttar Pradesh's Youth Manifesto at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) headquarters in Delhi.
With this manifesto, Congress has made an attempt to reach the youth of the state. In the said manifesto, the party has promised to provide 20 lakh jobs of which 8 lakh jobs will be given to the women.
In its manifesto, Congress has also promised to make better Uttar Pradesh. Slamming the Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh government, the Congress has claimed that it is the only party, that can make better Uttar Pradesh.
''You (Present government) have created the highest unemployment in 40 years. We want positive things to happen so that the future of the state can be bright,'' Priyanka said.
To be precise, let's have a look at some excerpts from Congress Youth Manifesto
-- To make this recruitment legislation, our leaders and workers have spoken to the youth all over UP and asked about their problems. This recruitment legislation has emerged from those discussions.
-- There are five sections in this recruitment legislation, in which the various problems of the youth have been focused. 1.5 lakh vacant posts in primary schools will be filled. Vacant posts will be filled in departments like Secondary, Higher Education, Police, etc.
-- The congress in the manifesto has claimed that the enthusiasm of the youth is broken, hence they (Congress) want to assure the youth that the party will restore their confidence by helping them in providing employment.
-- An examination calendar will be issued, in which recruitment advertisement, examination, appointment dates will be recorded and strict action will be taken in case of violation. There will be social justice supervisors for every recruitment to stop the scam of reservation.
-- The Uttar Pradesh government has reduced the budget for education. If our government comes, this budget will be increased and all colleges and universities will be upgraded. Providing better education is most important for building the future.
-- New opportunities will be provided for the employment of youth. A world-class institute will be set up for Mallahs and Nishads in which they will be trained. The youth of the most backward community will be given a loan at the rate of 1 percent interest to start their business.
-- All the vacant posts in Sanskrit teacher, Urdu teacher, Anganwadi, Asha, etc. will be filled. To restore the faith lost in the recruitment process, the fees for all examination forms will be waived and bus, train travel will be free.
-- To keep the youth away from the drugs, a center will be opened for counseling them. Apart from this, youth should be encouraged in the cultural field.
