CM Shri Kamal Nath inaugurates Model Career Centre in Jabalpur Bhopal, September 21, 2019 (Muslim Saleem): Chief Minister Shri Kamal Nath has said that not every person is talented but he has one skill and if we train him in that skill, then his future becomes better. The Chief Minister said that we are paying special attention to skill upgradation and technical knowledge to end unemployment in the state. We will make the younger generation of our state skillful so that they can contribute to the development of the state and living a dignified life. Shri Nath was inaugurating the Model Career Centre in Jabalpur today. An MoU was signed on the occasion between CII and Jabalpur Municipal Corporation for the Model Career Centre. The Chief Minister said that today the biggest need is that youth should be imparted training for skill upgradation along with academics. With this they will be able to connect with self-employment and employment. The Chief Minister said that in Chhindwara, he has cared for every person who is educated, who is an 8th pass or is a daily wager. We had established so many skill upgradation centres there 12 years ago, which is the highest number in the world. Our concern is more towards the class who are less educated and have their whole life before them. The Chief Minister said that it is our endeavour to provide more and more technical knowledge of various fields to the youth in Madhya Pradesh and provide opportunities for further progress.
