Referring back to the 4-day Job-Generation Mela, Ramdas said that about 15,000 school children in the age group of 15 to 18 years were vaccinated during the Mela. The KR Constituency has recorded 98 percent achievement in vaccination of 15-18 years age group, he added.

The CM will also launch a KR Constituency specific website that contains details of all development works and issues concerning the constituency on Jan. 12, he added.
“Seeing the success of the Job-Generation Mela, I have planned to organise similar Melas at all taluk headquarters of the district in the days ahead,” he said.
Replying to a question on whether he was an aspirant for a Ministerial berth, Ramdas asserted that he was not in wait to become a Minister. However, he was ready to accept any role that the party assigns him, he said and added that he will continue to work as an ordinary party worker, whether he was inducted to the Cabinet or not.
