Bandipora, Mar 15: A 5-day employment fair organized by the District Employment and Counselling Centre commenced here in the North Kashmir on Monday.
The fair was held at Boys Higher Secondary School, Kaloosa, in which a large number of people and unemployed youth turned up.
The Secretary, Labour and Employment, Farooq Ahmed Peer, inaugurated the fair. In his inaugural speech, he said that instead of hankering after government jobs, unemployed youth should set up their own income generating units to become self reliant. Instead of being employed, it can enable them to become employers.
“Our youth should set up units to earn their livelihood. They should not become job-seekers but should be job-providers,” he said.
Those present on the occasion included the former MLA, Ghulam Rasool Naz, District Development Commissioner, M. S. Sood, Joint Director, Employment, Peerzada Mushtaq Ahmed Shah, the Deputy Director, Employment, Ghulam Rasool Zargar, and District Employment and Counselling Officer, Shabnam Mir.
