New Delhi: Lauding Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his initiative to promote skill development, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said on Friday job opportunities should be provided to skilled labourers.
"If there are no opportunities for jobs, a skilled labour has no future. So, we must do needful for creating more and more jobs. Our government is working in this direction," he said addressing a function here.
Rijiju said time has come for everyone to give dignity to labour and those who do manual jobs as many of them are skilled labourers.
"We do not give proper honour to those who do small jobs. A plumber can be skilled. We must honour everyone who does even smallest of job," he said.
Referring to China, the Minister said he had visited the country a couple of years ago and himself saw how skilled labourers are being feted there.
