Citing disbursal of loans under the Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojna (PMMY), Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said “unprecedented” employment and entrepreneurial opportunities exist in the country today.
PM Modi addressed the employees of Hari Krishna Exports, a prominent Suarat-based diamond processing-exporting firm, through video conference from Delhi.
The company, led by Savji Dholakia, gifted 600 cars to its employees on Thursday as Diwali bonus at an event named as ‘Hari Krishna Skill India Incentive Ceremony’.
The prime minister said his government has been taking many steps to strengthen the gems and jewellery sector, as it is a significant generator of employment and a key contributor to the exports.
Referring to the “Main Nahin Hum” portal and app launched on Wednesday, PM Modi urged the company and its employees to dedicate some time for social causes.
He appealed that Mr Dholakia and his company to set themselves a target of making at least 100 villages “digital” by 2022.
