Both these flagship programs could bring a radical change in the lives of the youth and could also generate income for their families, said the Chief Minister and added that the tangible results of these programs of the government would be visible after two years.

He said that the government was taking appropriate decisions and working with commitment for the welfare of every section of the society.  A provision has been made in the budget to provide financial assistance of Rs 1.50 lakh to 7000 single women for construction of the house, as well as loan at one per cent interest to meritorious poor students for higher education. He said that in order to increase its income, the government has auctioned liquor vends and imposed water cess on the state's hydropower projects.
