Union Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar Opens Skill Development Training Project In Tripura

Agartala, Oct 20 (KNN) Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Union Minister of State for skill development and entrepreneurship, electronics and information technology, on Thursday launched Heartland Tripura, a project to impart skill development training to the youth, and said it would attract investments and create jobs.

The project is undertaken in partnership with Deloitte India and Agartala’s National Institute of Electronics and Information Technology.

“PM Modi’s vision is that the youths should pursue opportunities through skills from different investments coming in India, several jobs created in India. Tripura lagged behind the mainstream due to lack of physical and digital connectivity, but Modi-ji brought about a transformation in physical connectivity in the last 7-8 years,” he told reporters in Agartala.

The minister also said the central government initiated the step to convert the Northeast into a destination of investments and a hub of jobs. He said the government wanted to make Tripura a centre of technological innovation and hoped that big companies like Microsoft and IBM would create opportunities in the state in future.

Chandrasekhar said that Modi had adopted a three-step strategy—bridging the gaps of physical, digital and talent connectivity.

“This kind of model is what Modi-ji is encouraging—industry, the Government of India and the state government start working together to create a partnership model with one company, and other companies will follow as well,” he said.

Union minister of state Pratima Bhowmik said the government’s aim is to make Tripura an IT hub.

“Amit Shah-ji (Union home minister) during his visit to Tripura in 2017 told me and Biplab da (former CM Biplab Kumar Deb) that the BJP would form its government in the state… When we visited people, they told us to provide opportunities for the youth to work in IT or other big industries,” she said.
