Tamil Nadu Youth Welfare and Sports Development Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin, on Saturday, announced financial assistance of Rs 7500 in the form of stipend to civil services aspirants.

Speaking at the event, Udhayanidhi Stalin said, “UPSC, Indian Bank Services, Railways jobs, our Dravidian model is aimed at getting those jobs. Karunanidhi wanted graduate students from the family first. Periyar Anna and Karunanidhi worked for the upliftment of the youth. By the way, our CM Stalin is also working. Our Naan Mudhalvan scheme is very good, which benefited 13 lakh students and got jobs for 1.5 lakh students. Youth should get central government jobs. This Naan Mudhalvan scheme will pave the way to fulfil the dreams of the youth.”

Udhayanidhi Stalin said, “Many facilities are provided by the state government in Tamil Nadu, but the passing percentage of the youth of our state in the UPSC exam is very low, which is shocking. At one time the number of youth from Tamil Nadu in central government jobs was 10 percent, but after 2016, it has now reduced to only 5 percent. That is why we started training centres for youth for UPSC aspirants, and now we distribute financial assistance to them. Through this we are going to give Rs 7500 to 1000 students for 10 months.”

He further said that many facilities have been provided by the state government in Tamil Nadu, but the participation of the youth of the state has reduced.
