'Bogus Training Institutes'
'Bogus Training Institutes': Madhya Pradesh Forms Panel To Monitor Professional Colleges

BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath Wednesday said unemployed youths were not getting jobs due to "substandard" education and announced formation of a committee to look into the functioning of the institutes running professional courses in the state. Mr Nath made the announcement during the ongoing session of the state Legislative Assembly, amid complaints by some members cutting across the party lines about the bogus training institutes that have mushroomed in the state.

The members said that such institutes were virtually selling degrees in various streams, including nursing and computers, and producing unworthy professionals.

Speaking during the debate over the issue, Mr Nath recalled that he had put in a word with a top executive of a company to hire an unemployed engineering graduate.

"But when the interviewer asked him to write his resume, the candidate couldn't," he said.

The chief minister also said that he had recommended another such graduate's name to another company for a job.

"However, the interviewer told me that the person for whom I had put in a word, was not even worthy to become a labourer," he added.

"Due to the substandard training, the unemployed youths are not getting jobs," Mr Nath said.

Earlier, Congress member Vinay Saxena raised the issue that the state government has given permission to over 350nursing colleges, although many of them don't even have basic infrastructure.

"Of these, 50 nursing homes have got permission through unfair means," he alleged.

According to Saxena, in his home district Jabalpur, such colleges were being run even in duplexes with small areas, and demanded a check on such institutes.(UPDATED ON JULY 24TH, 2019)
