Govt serious to explore employment avenues: Saroori
GK NEWS NETWORK
Jammu Apr 2: Government is serious in exploring the employment avenues for the educated and skilled youth of the State and several initiatives have been taken to overcome the unemployment.
This was stated by the Minister for R&B, G.M.Saroori while interacting with a large group of educated youth of Bhalisa, Chilly and Bimalnag areas of Bhaderwah constituency, who called on the Minister here today. They apprised the Minister that their selection has been made in JK Police in 2007 at a special recruitment drive conducted during the tenure of then Chief Minister, Ghulam Nabi Azad, but the appointment orders have not been issued by the department so far. They sought Ministersí intervention in the matter and demanded for early issuance of formal appointment orders in their favour as a number of them have crossed the age limit fixed for the appointment in Government service.
Responding to their demand, Saroori assured them that the matter would be taken up with the Chief Minister and the Director General of Police for early solution.
The Minister said that Government has accorded priority the unemployment issue, adding the recently announced employment package in the State is an ample evidence of it. He appealed youth not to merely follow the Government jobs rather setup their own income generating units, which not only become the viable mean of their income but also generate employment for others too. For the purpose, the financial institutions are providing loans on low interest rate, the Minister added. He said Government agencies are also giving guidance and consultation for establishing income generating ventures to the candidates who wish to avail this facility.
