Chandigarh, August 10, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

The Punjab Government will launch the scheme for distribution of smartphones to the youth on August 12.

Disclosing this today, the Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said that the State Government had fulfilled its promise to the people, and the youth in particular, by providing state-of-the-art smart phones.

The Chief Minister said that in the difficult times of covid-19, some of the youth were facing pressing problems in accessing online education content. These phones will be extremely helpful to the youth in accessing a host of information available on the web as well as other learning material posted by the Department of School Education.

Pointing out further, Captain Amarinder Singh also said that the Government has chosen the auspicious occasion of Janmashtami to launch the scheme. Coincidentally, 12th August is also the International Youth Day, he said.

In order to avoid large gatherings the launch will be organised in 26 different locations in Chandigarh and the State of Punjab. All the district headquarters and some major principal towns will be covered on this day. Not more than 15 students studying in that town/district will be invited at each location and handed over the smartphones.

It may be recalled that the state government had already received the first consignment of 50,000 smartphones and the remaining were in the pipeline. The Council of Ministers had recently decided, that in the first phase, these would be given to all boys and girls studying in Class 12 in Government schools across the state. This would amount to about 1.75 lakh phones been given out in this phase.

The Chief Minister reiterated his resolve to work for the betterment of the youth. Just like Ghar Ghar Rozgar te Karobaar, this scheme would also prove to be a game changer for the youth,added Captain Amarinder Singh.Yes Punjab Online Since 2012
