It will be undertaken as part of the Garib Kalyan Rojgar Abhiyan that the Prime Minister started on June 20 for 116 districts in six states in the country, according to a Hindustan Times report.
The Atmanirbhar UP Rojgar Abhiyan is focused on providing jobs, promoting local entrepreneurship and creating partnerships with industrial associations and other organisations to create employment opportunities, the report quoted senior officials as saying.
The programme was launched virtually by the Prime Minister. UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath also attended the event virtually.
