Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that skill development of the new generation is a national requirement and a major foundation for Aatmanirbhar Bharat.

Virtually speaking on the occasion of World Youth Skills Day, PM Modi said, “Skill development of the youth of the new generation is a national requirement and a major foundation for Aatmanirbhar Bharat.”

He further said that the challenges posed to the world by the COVID-19 pandemic have increased the importance of World Youth Skill Day.

“This is the second time when we are observing this day amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The challenges of this global pandemic have increased the importance of World Youth Skill Day,” said PM Modi.
He said that skills teach us how work can be done in its real form.

The Prime Minister further stated that the country’s Skill India Mission is a campaign to bolster the need to develop skills in the youth with honesty and as per their needs.

He further informed that around 1.25 crore youth have received training under the Central government’s Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana.

“I am happy that through the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana, 1.25 crore youth have been trained to date,” he added.

He asserted that acquiring skills is necessary both for people and the country, emphasising that only those with skills have scope for growth.

PM Modi said, “Today it is important that your learning should not stop with your earning. There is a high demand for various skills across the globe. Only those who possess skills shall grow. This applies both to the people and the country.”
“I met some officers working with the Skill Development Mission. I told them that now that you are working on this programme, why don’t you prepare a list of skills which are needed on a regular basis. You would be surprised to know that when they did a rough listing of the skills, around 900 such skills came to light which are necessarily needed in our lives. You can very well estimate, how big is the task of skill development,” he added.

National Skill Development Mission was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 15, 2015, to create convergence across sectors and states in terms of skill training activities.

“Director Sir told us to give our exams and wait for results. We are against it! We either demand online exams or mass promotion. When Kashmir students can get promoted without exams, why not us?” said a student

“I’m here to support these students. Their demand is genuine. They had online classes. Third wave is on it’s way and we can’t risk students’ lives. JK Board Authorities must listen to their appeal.” added their supporter

The students claimed the J&K Police to have abused and physically attacked them. They disagreed with the behaviour and said it was against the law and order.

“It’s J&K Police not the goons that attacked us today. I’m still 16 and it’s against the law to hit me. We aren’t terrorists, just small kids demanding something for ourselves. At least don’t hit us.” they said

According to them, the boy was innocent and didn’t have any personal grudges. However, the dead body’s torn clothes and broken bones have proved it to be a murder.

“It was morning when my son went for a haircut. Someone informed me about his death in the evening. While I rushed to the place, I saw around 200 people around the dead body. It’s a murder and we want justice.” said the boy’s father

“It’s a forestry area where hardly people are seen. How did the boy reach there? He was first killed and then thrown from a height. The Police hasn’t helped us yet. In fact, they told us to compromise. This is beyond limits.” added another

The family has demanded justice and requested Jammu and Kashmir Police to investigate the matter. “Police must check the call records of the boy’s phone and find the culprit. We want the murderer to be sentenced to death.” they said
