Talking to reporters after launching the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's HIV prevention programme, he said some people were misinterpreting the decision to provide money to the CMEY groups for taking up economic generating activities and trying to make it a political issue. "This is not correct," he added.
Referring to the five-day Youth Employment Summit's (YES) regional forum being held here from December 14, he said about 1,000 international and national delegates would participate in the event. The forum would focus, among other things, on employment generation, entrepreneurship, renewable energy, HIV/ AIDS and character building.
He said a YES academy's office would be set up here and said that the Government would promote youth clubs in a big way.
Referring to the successful conduct of the National Games and the Afro-Asian games, he said sports kits, worth Rs.12 crores, were being distributed among youth organisations and schools in the State.
Mr. Naidu declined to comment on press reports that the Lok Sabha elections were likely to be advanced.
