Urging youths to develop the feeling of nationality within themselves, and to think what was their contribution to the state rather than expecting more from it, Chairman Regmi said Nepali workers are being looted, exploited, underpaid and are forced to face unnatural death abroad.
Remittance is only a temporary source of income for the country, he said, adding the government was committed to creating employment opportunities in the country itself.
He argued that Nepali workers should take skill-enhancement training before going for abroad jobs. Fertile land in rural parts of the country remains barren due to rampant migration of youths to foreign lands, he added. He called for support from one and all to systematize internal and external migration, a challenging task of the government.
The upcoming Constituent Assembly election is the main target of my government, said Chairman Regmi and urged one and all to extend support from their respective capacities to make the election successful.
Also speaking at the programme, Minister for Labour and Employment Hari Prasad Neupane said today´s young generation has got attracted to foreign jobs and the government was effortful to make it more secure and systematic.
Minister for Youth and Sports Ram Kumar Shrestha said the government was committed to providing jobs to youths within the country, and recalled the formulation of National Youth Policy, implementation of Youth Programmes and formation of Youth Self Employment Fund. Establishing the National Youth Council is the challenge of the hour for the government being an election government, he added.
