In mid-October 2022, Tamil Nadu chef minister MK Stalin set a target to provide one lakh jobs to youngsters every year and said on Saturday that ensuring employment delights a family. He urged the state cabinet to organise job fairs in all 234 assembly constituencies of the state to overcome unemployment.

"I and my Ministers had to become like medical professionals and saved the people. That's how we brought COVID-19 under control. And the DMK (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) never ignored the unemployment issue citing the pandemic. We ensured job opportunities to one lakh persons. This is a big achievement," Stalin said and lauded the effort of C V Ganesan in this regard.

"In 15 months of DMK rule, we conducted 882 job fairs including 65 major camps and 817 other fairs. About 15,691 firms participated in those job fairs and appointment letters were given to 99,989 candidates," the chief minister added.
