Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated on Friday that the slogan of administration should be “citizen is always right,” drawing a link with the term “consumer is always right” in the business world.

The Prime Minister made the statements while digitally addressing the ‘Rozgar Mela,’ in which around 71,000 appointment letters were presented to prospective hires in government ministries and organisations.

“In the business world, it is said, ‘The consumer is always right’. Similarly, ‘Citizen is always right’ should be the motto of governance,” PM Modi said.

PM Modi highlighted the government’s commitment to creating “employment and self-employment opportunities” and said that the opportunities for the latter increase when there is rapid development.

“We are committed to continually creating employment and self-employment opportunities. With infrastructure development, opportunities continue to increase. When there is rapid development, self-employment opportunities increase exponentially. Today, the self-employment field is progressing,” he said.

The Prime Minister further said that the government has ensured both employment and progress for youth, which he termed as “true confidence-boosting factors”.

“Our government has efficiently addressed the issues as regards the delay in promotions and associated legal cases. Employment and Progress are the true confidence-boosting factors for the youth. And our government ensured both,” he said.

“The selection processes in the Central Government employments have now been more than ever streamlined and time-bound,” PM Modi added.

The Prime Minister also asked the youth to not let go of self-learning through technology.
“Self-learning through technology is an opportunity given to today’s generation, don’t let it go. The urge to keep learning continuously in life is what drives us all forward,” he said.

“Today, India has entrepreneurs even in the villages, who are so versed the digital technology. I feel proud to realise this. I urge you all to keep the spirits high and move ahead with courage, commitment and devotion,” PM Modi said.

The Prime Minister launched the “Rozgar Mela” to attract 10 lakh people, highlighting his government’s efforts to generate jobs over the previous eight years in the face of continual resistance on the subject of unemployment.

In his speech after more than 75,000 people were given appointment letters for various government jobs in the first tranche, PM Modi acknowledged the global economic challenges, with many countries experiencing record inflation and unemployment, and said India is making every effort to emerge unscathed.

Last year, the Prime Minister introduced the concept of Rozgar Mela at the national level during Dhanteras.
