JAMMU: Governor Jammu and Kashmir, N. N. Vohra, has emphasized the need for promoting deeper understandings, communal harmony and brotherhood for establishing lasting peace and normalcy which would pave the way for rapid all round progress and a bright future for the State. He urged upon one and all to come forward in a big way to contribute towards achieving this goal.
The Governor, as Chief Guest, was addressing the 45th Peace Conference organized by the Jammu and Kashmir Peace Foundation (JKPF) at General Zorawar Singh Auditorium, here today.
Governor observed that we have suffered great human and economic losses alongside an irreparable loss to the education and careers of the youth. He added that having passed through a very difficult time our people now seek and pray for peace and normalcy. He observed that our youth have since come up in a big way and many of them are pursuing their education in reputed technical and professional institutions across the country and competing successfully for various career options. He emphasized the need for enabling the youth to pursue their education, improve their skills and secure gainful employment to secure bright and better careers. In this context, he referred to the Special Scholarship Scheme launched by the Central Government to enable the youth of J&K to pursue higher studies and various professional courses outside the State and the other skill upgradation schemes which are also available, adding that a maximum possible number of them should benefit from these opportunities.
