700 vacancies in govt schools to be filled soon: Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren | Ranchi News


RANCHI: As many as 238 young men from various tribal communities and Scheduled Caste groups who underwent skill development training at Prejha Foundation’s Gurukul in Jamshedpur and Khunti district were handed over appointment letters by chief minister Hemant Soren in Ranchi on Tuesday morning. The men have been hired by their recruiters for a minimum monthly salary of Rs 15,000.
The men, trained in welding, plumbing, carpentry and other technical trades, have been hired by prominent companies such as Shapoorji Pallonji, Automotive Excel and Vilas Javdekar, the foundation said in a statement.
Soren handed over the appointment letters in a ceremony hosted by the department of ST, SC and backward class welfare at the Project Building auditorium in Dhurwa.
Speaking on the occasion, Soren emphasised that his government is on its course to fulfill its promise of generating employment for the state’s youth in the ongoing calendar year. He also said that there will soon be a formal announcement to fill up the vacancies for 700 teachers in the government-run schools.
“So far, we have recruited over 600 doctors, given jobs to 900 ANMs and nurses and 24 district sports officers. We have, for the first time in 20 years, also provided direct recruitment to 100 sportspersons. Over 150 young men were given permanent employment by the ACC Cements in Chaibasa while we brought back several women who were working in low paid jobs in apparel factories across the country and provided them with well-paid jobs in Jharkhand,” he said.
Soren, however, underlined that government jobs will not be available for each and every aspirant. “Therefore, it is important for you to use your skills and start enterprises of your own. Today, you all are going out of the state in search of employment. But I want to see you employing people in Jharkhand in coming years,” he added.
Prejha Foundation, which is acting as a special purpose vehicle of Jharkhand government for imparting skill training and employment to the state’s underprivileged youth, claimed to have trained over 15,000 youngsters in its 28 Gurukuls statewide.
