Educated youths and graduates in large numbers remain unemployed in the country. The good governance government formed in the year 2015 introduced a project to provide employment to 10 lakhs of persons. In my capacity as the Minister of Industry and Commerce, I have contributed as much as possible towards this project. Graduates and youths who are below the poverty line are badly affected. They struggle to make their both ends meet. Their families suffer a lot in silence.
Unemployed Graduate youths and spinsters in the North East are the worst affected by the unemployment problem. As the representative of the Vanni District, I have participated in the event where appointments were given to youths/spinsters living in war affected areas. I thank the President and the Prime minister for employing them. Still more unemployed graduates are there in the North and East. Their livelihood and future is uncertain.
As they have suffered a lot during the war, I draw your attention to consider their plight and provide employment to graduates of the North and East.
