The manifesto holds enormous opportunities for the youth of Uttar Pradesh. In an attempt to generate employment, Akhilesh Yadav has taken several initiatives and further projected new policy measures in the manifesto to benefit the youth:
Entrepreneurship Development Programmes
Akhilesh has mentioned a new programme for the Youth of the State i.e. Entrepreneurship Development, which would develop entrepreneurial abilities among the people. The programme will involve equipping a person with the required skills and knowledge needed for starting and running the enterprise.
New Start-Up Schemes
Akhilesh Yadav government has finalized its own start-up policy to promote the ‘start-up culture’ and entrepreneurship in the state. In the coming years, the state will launch new start-up schemes including market linkages, infrastructure and loans would be available at low interest rates. The Akhilesh Yadav government would promote start-ups through the INFUSE model (Incubators-Fund of Funds-Start-up entrepreneurs), wherein it would provide financial support to incubators, start-ups and venture capitalists.
More Focus on Skill Development Mission
The state of Uttar Pradesh has been awarded by the Government of India ‘Best State across India in Skill Development Mission’. In the coming times, the Akhilesh Yadav government would focus more on this platform and enhance the number of beneficiaries or skilled manpower under the mission.
Samajwadi Sports School
Akhilesh Yadav government has given a special emphasis to strengthen the basic sports infrastructure and develop the sports culture in the state and providing all modern sports facilities. The government will establish a sports school under which the sports department has already prepared a ‘sports calendar’ in coordination with educational institutions and schools.
