Warangal: The State government has made arrangements to provide employment to about 750 youth in Gulf countries this year, informed Home Minister Nayani Narasimha Reddy. For this purpose the Telangana Overseas Manpower Company Limited (Tomcom), launched recently by the government, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with several companies in the Gulf nations.

Narasimha Reddy, the chairman of Tomcom, said it was planned to provide jobs to nearly 5,000 youth in Gulf and other countries. Youths from Telangana have been duped by middlemen in their efforts to get overseas jobs. In order to check the cheating by travel agents, the government has established the Tomcom and it would help the youth to find suitable jobs in a legal manner.

Therefore, the youth intending to get jobs in Gulf nations should register their names online with Tomcom to go abroad in a secure way, he suggested. Home Minister Narasimha Reddy was here on Friday to inaugurate a new building at Kazipet ITI and to lay a foundation stone for additional classrooms.

Addressing a public gathering on the occasion, he said the required infrastructure would be provided at all the ITIs in the State with Rs 100 crores. Responding to a request by Warangal (West) MLA D Vinay Bhaskar, who sought an additional Rs 1.30 crores towards an improvement of infrastructure facilities at the ITI, the Minister said the funds would be released soon.

The Minister informed that the government has planned to construct shelters for the convenience of construction labourers along with crèches for their children. The officials were asked to identify and submit a report on the sites where the shelters were required.
He said the Chief Minister, K Chandrashekar Rao, has gained a reputation of an ideal chief minister in view of his serious efforts for the welfare of the downtrodden sections.

Rs 35,000 crores were allocated for the implementation of welfare programmes. Warangal Mayor N Narender appealed the Minister to set up industries in Warangal to boost employment opportunities for ITI students while MLA Vinay Bhaskar wanted filling up vacant posts in ITIs and labour department.

Later on the day, the Minister has launched Mission Kakatiya works at Somidi tank and took part in a public interaction programme organised by MLA Vinay Bhaskar. Deputy Mayor Md Sirajuddin, training and employment director KY Naik, RDO Venkata Madhava Rao, TRS district president T Ravinder Rao and others were present.
