Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi said that the employment rate in the country has been improving in recent weeks due to the efforts of "double-engine sarkar," expressing satisfaction with the Rozgar Melas being organised.

He also stated that the Central Government has invested thousands of crores of rupees in Goa's development over the last eight years. Shedding light on the soon-to-be-opened airport at Mopa, which is being built at a cost of around Rs. 3,000 crore (US$ 367.33 million), the Prime Minister stated that it will be a major source of employment for thousands of Goans, similar to the state's connectivity and infrastructure projects.

On Dhanteras, Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi introduced the concept of Rozgar Mela at the national level. This marked the start of the campaign to create 10 lakh jobs at the federal level of government. Since then, the Prime Minister has addressed the Rozgar Melas of the governments of Gujarat, J&K, and Maharashtra, as well as launched a Karmayogi Prarambh module for online orientation courses for all new appointees in various government departments the day before, while also distributing approximately 71,000 appointment letters to newly inducted recruits.
