Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said his government had given 1.5 times more jobs in its 10 years than the previous dispensation did in the same duration.

Handing over recruitment letters for government jobs to more than one lakh youngsters via video-conference during a Rozgar Mela programme, Modi slammed the previous government for taking an inordinately long time to complete recruitment exercises and said it bred bribery.

The prime minister said his government had brought transparency and is working to ensure that recruitment is done in a time-bound manner.

Youngsters now believe that they all have equal opportunity and can find a place for themselves in the government system through hard work and talent, he said.

The prime minister asserted that the measures taken by his government, be it a scheme for rooftop solar power for one crore homes or the massive investment in infrastructure, had been creating a lot of employment opportunities.

With over 1.25 lakh start-ups, India is the third largest eco-system in the sector, and youngsters are launching new firms in even smaller cities, he said, adding that it is creating lakhs of jobs.

The government has extended tax rebates to start-ups and has announced a fund of Rs 1 lakh crore for research and innovation, Modi said.

Accusing previous governments of not paying due attention to the railways, he said the entire sector is amid a transformation.

"They neglected the common people's expectations," Modi said, attacking the previous governments.

On the occasion, he also laid the foundation stone of phase I of the integrated complex ‘Karmayogi Bhavan’ here. This complex will promote collaboration and synergy among various pillars of 'Mission Karmayogi'.

The recruits will be joining the government in various ministries and departments, according to a statement issued earlier.
