Kolkata, Jul 31: West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee said on Saturday that 10,000 youth from the minority groups would be selected by the employment bank for giving required training for jobs.
She announced this while speaking in a minority development programme, organized by West Bengal Minorities Development and Finance Corporation (WBMDFC).
Alleging that the previous government had politicized the policy for the development of the minority community, Mamta said her government would grant Rs 122 crore for giving stipends and sanction Rs 82 crore as credit for the students belonging to the minority community.
She also said 32 Urdu schools would be set up across the West Bengal for giving 'due recognition' to the 'rich language', while 5000 housing complexes would be built for the people belonging to the minority community.
Asserting that the minority development programmers of her government would not confine to Kolkata only, it would be also channelized to the remote areas across the other districts across the state.
''The Left Front government has politicized minority development during its regime, but we are committed to improving the socio-economic condition of these people setting aside all odds,'' the Chief Minister maintained.
