AGARTALA, Dec 22 - The Left Front is not in a position to provide government jobs to all the unemployed youths but would continue to keep door open for fresh appointment, Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar said today.
While the Centre has stopped filling up vacant posts in different departments, the State Government has been trying hard to provide government jobs as much as possible, he said while speaking at the inauguration of a skill development programme.
�The Left Front Government is following an alternative strategy which is totally against the new government in Delhi. Around 42 lakh posts are lying vacant in different departments of the Centre�, he pointed out. Sarkar said the State Government wants unemployed youths to develop their skill alongside their study so that they could become self employed.
�The government will extend full support to those youths who want to do something new by upgrading their skill�, he assured.
�To ensure a secure life to unemployed youth, the government has decided to push the skill development plan by floating a new department of Skill Development�, he added.
Sarkar also hammered the Centre for not adopting a realistic view on the country�s major concern � unemployment.
