Addressing the appointees, PM Modi said, “Today marks the day when a new link in the form of Rozgar Mela is being anchored to the employment and self-employment campaigns in the country that are going on for the last eight years.”

He said that keeping in mind the 75 years of independence, the Union government is giving appointment letters to 75,000 youngsters under a programme.

“We decided that a tradition of giving appointment letters in one go should be started so that a collective temperament of completing projects in a time-bound way develops in departments,” he said explaining the rationale of the Rozgar Mela.

In the coming days also, candidates will get their appointment letters from the government from time to time. “I am happy that many NDA-ruled and BJP-ruled states along with the Union Territories will also organise similar melas,” he added.

He said the side effects of the once-in-a-century pandemic will not go away in 100 days.
