GUWAHATI, July 28 - Union Minister for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Mahendra Nath Pandey today called on Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal at the Brahmaputra State Guest House here and discussed various issues related to skill development in the State.

During the meeting, the Union minister urged the State government to allot suitable land for setting up the Northeast Skill Centre in Guwahati which would cater to the skill development needs of the eight states of the region. The Chief Minister assured that land was already identified for the purpose and would be provided soon.

Sonowal said that there had been significant increase in trade and business activities in the State and the Central government�s steps like providing of nearly Rs 23,000 crore for NRL�s productivity augmentation from 3 MMTPA to 9 MMTPA had warranted a large pool of skilled manpower for taking advantage of the boost to economic activities in the State. He urged the Union minister to provide the necessary support to the State government for expediting the process of setting up Assam Skill University.

This university would help the youth of the entire region to fulfil their dreams of becoming able citizens of the country, he said.

The Chief Minister also urged the Union minister to set up a centre of National Skill Training Institute (NSTI) in the State so that trainers of ITIs could be provided quality training here itself. In the absence of such an institute, trainers need to go to Kolkata for training. Pandey assured of taking necessary action in this regard.

The Chief Minister also raised the issue of low quality of construction work carried out by unskilled contractors and the resultant dilapidation of public infrastructure like roads, bridges, buildings, etc., within a short period. He called on the Union Skill Development Ministry to take initiative to provide skills to the contractors for making Prime Minister Narendra Modi�s vision of a new India a reality.

The Union minister directed the ministry officials present in the meeting to explore the possibility of developing programmes for skill development of contractors in partnership with the Indian Institute of Entrepreneurship.
