Modi government intends to provide employment to one crore people in the country in the next two years, Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya said today.
The Union Minister of State for Labour and Employment also noted that the government’s skill development initiative has contributed towards creating a skilled work force in the country.
“Employer-employee relationship has been cordial after the Narendra Modi-led government came to power, so I am fully confident that we will provide one crore people with employment in the next two years,” he said after inaugurating the Employees’ State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) nursing college and auditorium in Karnataka.
Union Minister for Chemical and Fertilisers and Parliamentary Affairs Ananth Kumar and MP P C Mohan were present at the event.
Speaking about the various “positive” legislations brought in by the department after the NDA government came to power, Dattatreya expressed hope that the new wage and industrial relations codes will be passed in the Parliament’s next session.
