Suggestions of the people of the state are invited for better decisions in the interests of youth. Shri Gehlot said that our vision is ‘Technology for All’. The state government is making every effort for this.

Gehlot , was addressing the Rajasthan Digifest function organized at Birla Auditorium on Friday. He told the youth that Shri Rajiv Gandhi had become the Prime Minister of the country just at the age of 40. It was through him that the computer revolution was brought for the first time for the bright future of the country. Today, the effect of the same is being seen in the enthusiasm of the youth, dedication towards work and innovations. In the fest, Shri Gehlot encouraged the youth by appreciating the innovations while visiting the exhibition based on information technology. This two-day festival is being organized by the Department of Information Technology and Communications.

The Chief Minister said that so far 1.30 lakh government jobs have been given by the state government.

In such a situation, Rajasthan is becoming the leading state in providing government jobs in the country. He said that Nehru Youth Transit Hostel and Facilitation Center is being built for 500 youths of Rajasthan at Udaipur House in Delhi. The youth of Rajasthan will be able to shape their future by staying here.

Gehlot said that the state government is giving top priority to education. When I became the Chief Minister for the first time, at that time there were only 6 universities in Rajasthan which has become 89 today. Today reputed institutes like IIT, Triple IT, AIIMS are operating in Rajasthan. Medical colleges are opening in 30 out of 33 districts of the state. With this, the youth will no longer have to go out for medical studies. He said that taking a big decision, the Government has opened Government English Medium Schools in the State, in which the enthusiasm for admission is such that lottery has to be taken out. This decision will have a big impact after 10 years. The students of village-dhani will make their place in the world.
