Hyderabad, Oct 5 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy today urged higher education officials to ensure that every student got a job by the time he leaves college.

While reviewing the job potential for students with officials, the Chief Minister directed them to ensure that ''each student has an appointment letter by the time a student leaves college,'' an official release said here.

All students, except those, who were opting for higher education, should get jobs immediately after finishing their degrees and diplomas, he added.

Dr Reddy said a comprehensive action plan should be formulated in this regard in such a manner that education creates immediate employment. The action plan would be implemented by involving Jawahar Knowledge Centres (JKC), Rajiv Udyogasri Mission (RUM) and Department of Education, he added The Chief Minister directed the departments to arrange for spoken english classes, to enable the students to get employment.

He said there were no dearth of funds for training and Andhra Pradesh is ahead of other States, as far as the number of engineering and other degree colleges were concerned.

It was meaningless to create just degree and diploma holders.

There should be no unemployed-educated youth in the State in the next two to three years, he added.
