<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Union Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (Independent Charge) Rajiv Pratap Rudy today said roll-out of Goods and Services Tax will generate five lakh jobs for computer operators. “After the introduction of GST the country would need at least five lakh computer operators having knowledge of finance-related subjects along with information technology,” Rudy said here. He was speaking to reporters after inaugurating a Skill Development Centre in Vijay Nagar area. About the allegation that jobs are shrinking in the country, Rudy said, “The focus of the government is to provide entrepreneurship skills and promote self-employment. We want our youth to become job-providers and not job-seekers.” Asked about killing of a calf by Congress workers in Kerala in protest against ban on sale of cattle for slaughter at animal markets, the Union minister said such people are trying to hamper the development agenda of the government. “Government has taken cognisance of such incidents. Such forces are trying to hamper the development agenda of the Modi government,” he said. Talking about his home state, Bihar, Rudy said the current JD(U)-led government is founded on “appeasement, nepotism and casteism”. “I hope there would be a big political change in Bihar with Yogi Adityanath becoming the Chief Minister of (neighbouring) Uttar Pradesh,” he added.(This article has not been edited by DNA’s editorial team and is auto-generated from an agency feed.)
