Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday launched a youth policy for youth welfare in the state. He launched the policy during a Youth Mahapanchayat program held at Motilal Nehru Stadium in the state capital Bhopal.
Youth in the age group between 17 to 35 from across the state participated in the Mahapanchayat. Addressing the program on the occasion, CM Chouhan said, "Today, we have made a youth policy for our children. We have received 10,000 suggestions for the policy. We discussed it on a wide scale and then we have made this youth policy. It is not just a policy, it is a humble effort to make your life."
Talking about the motive of the youth policy, he further said, "The aim of the Madhya Pradesh youth policy is that the youth of the state become entrepreneurs who are ready to take risks with confidence. They should be aware of the economic and financial system. They should become mentally and physically healthy and be responsible towards agriculture and the environment."
He further added, “The youth should become inclusive and fair. They should get a sense of participation and get a scientific temper and attitude. They should be able to make reasoned decisions based on facts. The youths should develop respect for culture and values. They should become dedicated to nation building and their duties.”
The chief minister further said that the scope of Madhya Pradesh Youth Policy included Education & Skills, Employment & Entrepreneurship, Health, Youth Leadership & Social Work, Sports & Fitness, Arts & Culture and Environmental Protection.
Chouhan also said, "To improve education, we are building CM Rise School which will be equipped with modern facilities. We will provide facilities like private schools in the CM Rise School."
He added, "We are formulating the 'Chief Minister Youth Skill Earning Scheme' under which the youth can learn and earn. A minimum stipend of Rs 8000 a month will be given to the youth. Registration will start from 1 June and the money will be deposited from 1 July."
The Youth Commission will be reconstituted and it will be done by 5 April. Besides this, a youth budget will come separately in the next year's budget, the CM said, adding that MP Youth Games would be organised in the state. Yoga education would be started and playgrounds would be made in every village.
