Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that closing madarsas are not a solution to the problem. There is need to modernise the Madarsas. The subjects such as English, Computer, Science should also be taught there. I also say this to the Sanskrit schools, that even with their existing education, modern subjects should be taught.
The Chief Minister was speaking as Chief Guest on Thursday on the occasion of the inauguration of the Coordination Meeting with Minority Welfare Ministers and officials of the North Eastern States. He said, minorities have talent, but they do not have a platform.
CM said that the change will come through the Prime Minister Skill Development Plan. Under this scheme, we have registered six lakh youth and so far, 4.5 lakh youth have been trained. Of these, 1.5 lakhs young people have been placed in the reputed companies. The government is providing a platform to talented youth through this scheme.
He said that minority ministry is a major responsibility. Just as any part of the body stops working, then it is called Divyaang, in the same way, if a section of society is neglected then what can be conceived on it, it can be imagined. The neglected class is not demanding extra from the government, it only wants a share in government schemes.
