Speaking on this occasion Modi said, We have opened a war against poverty strategically, and we must win this fight.And I will form an army of poor, every poor is my soldier, we will win this war against poverty on behalf of their strength.They (poor) don’t have high ambitions of buying a bungalow or expensive cars, they just want their children to be self-dependent.
The youth of the nation doesn’t want to live a life of pity, they want to live with self respect & dignity. The country’s first priority is generating employment for the youth of the country. t’s not that skill only brings money in your pocket, it instills you with a sense of confidence, brings a new strength in life.
Skill India Mission is not just a program to fill stomachs,but to instill self confidence in poor families & bring a new energy to nation. his mission is not limited to skill, we have linked entrepreneurship to it.
Parents from middle-class,lower middle-class & poor families ask their children to learn some skill so that they can stand on their feet. Through Skill India Mission, we wish to fulfill these dreams.
We have 65% of the population below 35 years of age, how will they face the challenges if they are not skilled? If they can’t face challenges,they themselves will become a challenge for us,India’s 1st priority is to generate employment opportunities, Said PM Modi.
