Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on November 30 showed his concern over the unemployment issue, saying that it is the country's biggest problem after inflation. He also stressed that both state and central governments should work on it and treat it as a priority.
"The biggest problem in the country after inflation is unemployment. Three-fourths of our population is youth, they should get opportunities for employment whether it is government or non-government job. Be it the Centre or State government, this should be everyone's priority," Gehlot said while addressing the public at the mega job fair organised by the Rajasthan government in Bikaner city.
He further stressed that it is the responsibility of the governments (State and Centre both) to bring investment and make necessary changes in the economic policies so that youths, who wants to start their own business, can get loan easily.
"It is the responsibility of governments to bring investment and change our economic policies so that youth who wants to start their own work can get a loan. Investment opportunities should increase so that more jobs can be offered to youth. If a government post is created then it should not remain vacant for long," he said.
The Rajasthan Chief Minister further said that he is very happy with the mega job fair as it has been able to provide employment opportunities for youth.
"I am happy that a large number of youths are getting employment through the employment fairs being organized by the state government," he added.
