Swarna Bharati Trust: Venkaiah Naidu Exhorts People To Work For Country

NITI Aayog Vice Chairman Arvind Panagariya has inaugurated a health camp organised by Swarna Bharati Trust near Hyderabad. Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu also spoke.

Hyderabad: Union Minister for Information & Broadcasting Venkaiah Naidu said there is a dire need for Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) to contribute to creating skilled manpower. He exhorted that people should not be self-centred and work for the country. He said the mindset of expecting the government to do everything is not correct.

Speaking at a free medical camp organised by Swarna Bharati Trust in at Mutchintala village in Ranga Reddy district recently, Venkaiah Naidu said today Japan has 10 million apprentices and Germany has three million, but India has apprentices only in thousands. While 13 million Indians are attaining the age which makes them eligible to work we are able to teach work skills only to about three million persons. This gap has to be filled by government as well as NGOs. That is why Swarna Bharati has been striving in this field for 16 years, he said.

Arvind Panagariya, Vice President of NITI Aayog, who inaugurated the medical camp has congratulated the trust for enabling young men and women to work by imparting skills. He said people who were trained in work skills by the Trust are on their way to employment. Panagariya said life journey is long and a lot of opportunity come in the way. But people should acquire the required skills to grab the opportunities that come their way. Persistence and hard work are needed for any one to succeed in life, Panagariya said. He said that conducting a health camp for the rural poor is a laudable initiative.

Venkaiah slams AP ministers for their jibes on governor

HYDERABAD: Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu today responded on the political slugfest of two Telugu states on “cash for vote” episode and slammed AP ministers for making derogatory remarks against Governor Narasimhan on common capital.

Talking to media after giving away prizes to 10th class meritorious students in Swarna Bharathi Trust program in his home district Nellore, Venkaiah faulted both chief ministers Chandrasekhar Rao and Chandrababu Naidu for crossing swords, instead of focusing on development of their own states.

He expressed displeasure at the ministers for their senseless comments. “It is not proper to make such harsh and defaming comments against the governor, he said, and found fault with AP ministers Atchennaidu and Pattipati Pulla Rao for indulging in rhetoric against the governor.

The union minister’s remarks assume significance at a time when they retracted the same at the behest of Naidu. Venkaiah also said it was not good for them to make disparaging comments against the governor.

The two chief ministers should stop sparring, and instead, focus on the development of their states, he said. He also expressed displeasure at the prevailing political rivalry and ramifications of alleged phone-tapping and cash-for-vote scam case. (NSS)
