By City Correspondent

GUWAHATI, Aug 30 - Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Friday instructed the Directorate of Employment and Craftsmen Training, Assam to take steps to start classes at the ITI for Divyangs at Barbarua, Dibrugarh from the International Day of Disabled Persons on December 3 this year.

Sonowal gave the instruction while reviewing the functioning of the Assam Skill Development Mission and the Directorate of Employment and Craftsmen Training in his conference room at Janata Bhawan.

The Chief Minister said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Central government was giving a lot of emphasis on the all-round development of divyangs and the first ITI for Divyangs in India at Barbarua would be a shining example of the State government�s commitment to the cause. Sonowal also asked the Assam Skill Development Mission to work aggressively to find placement for 2 lakh skilled youths of the State during 2019-20 and directed renovation of the employment exchanges in the State to make them appealing to the youths.

Sonowal said that lack of liasioning of skills hampered the career prospects of the State�s youths as they faced problems in acquiring necessary finances for starting their enterprises after skill training. Ability to express oneself adequately and in a convincing manner was an important trait in finding better opportunities in life, he asserted.

Underscoring the importance of ensuring dignity of labour for skilled workers, Sonowal said that unless respect is not given to fitters, masons, plumbers and other such skilled workers, youths would not come forward to receive skill training at the skill development centres set up by the government.

He also said that farmers needed to be given respect for bringing about agricultural development in the State. He further suggested changing of nomenclature of skilled jobs to make them appealing for the youths.

�The civil aviation sector in the country is growing at a fast pace and skilled manpower is needed to support the growth,� he asserted.
