Employment will be provided under prime minister's initiative

"Along with this initiative started by the prime minister, our government in Maharashtra under the leadership of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde has decided to give government jobs to 75,000 youth in the state," Fadnavis said.

Of the 75,000 jobs, 18,000 vacancies will be in the police department and an advertisement for the same will be published in the next five to seven days, he said.

"We will provide 75,000 government jobs for the youth of the state in the next one year," the deputy chief minister said.
