Unemployment is biggest problem: Gogoi

Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Friday said that unemployment is the biggest problem facing Assam and imparting modern skill to youths can eradicate it to a large extent.
Addressing a function in Guwahati on Friday, Gogoi said that lack of expertise among our youths means that Assam has to bring even semi-skilled workers from other states for working in major projects like Gas Cracker in Lepetkata.
He said that the state government is planning to upgrade ITIs and all such centres within the 12th Plan period. The target is to get over the problem of skill shortage within the next five years, he said.
Industry and Commerce Minister Pradyut Bordoloi said that the government is planning to set up multi-disciplinary skill training centres in all the 219 blocks across the state within the current 12th Five Year Plan period.
The first five such centres will be operational within months and 23 will be operational by end of the current financial year, he said.
