Following this, he stressed on the need for skill development and asked the youth to be job creators.

“Every Indian should think what kind of India they want in 2022, when India will celebrate 75 years of Independence,” he said.

 He said that the Centre and the state governments will work together to ensure that five crore houses are built by 2022 for the poor.

Speaking further about the project he said that this was not an infrastructure project and that it being undertaken to strengthen the dreams of the poor.

He also said that the initiative will create a lot of jobs as sale of building materials like cement, bricks and others will increase.

He also spoke about skill development initiatives taken by the Chhattisgarh government and said, “Only talking about demographic dividend won’t do.”

“Our youth must have skills and must be job creators,” he said.

“Skill development brings so many opportunities for the youth. ‘Mudra Yojana’ is creating new entrepreneurs and helping existing ones grow,” he said.

Modi said for economic progress, there is the private and public sector, “but the third and crucial one that I am attaching importance to is personal sector, where every person becomes an entrepreneur.”
