JAMMU: Advisor to Governor, Mr Khurshid A Ganai today called upon the States youth to become job providers than job seekers.
Ganai was speaking at a function organised by Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan Jammu at Press Club here in connection with the observance of 125th Birth Anniversary of Dr B R Ambedkar.
Ganai said the technological advancement and new market economy has opened up huge employment generation avenues and the talented youth of Jammu and Kashmir should draw the maximum benefit out of the new opportunities around them, as is being done by their counterparts outside the State. Instead of hankering after menial jobs, the youth should venture out to establish their own enterprises and create job opportunities not only for themselves but for others as well, he said.
Paying rich tributes to Dr Ambedkar, the Advisor said the architect of our countrys constitution was a liberal and democrat to the core in thought and action. Dr Ambedkar gave shape to our constitution that promotes democratic values of justice, liberty, equality and fraternity, secularism and social justice, he said and urged the youth to understand the essentiality of oneness of all religions, cultures and traditions, and above all unity in diversity.
Mr. Ganai also presented a cheque of Rs 1 lakh to the state Youth Club for outstanding contribution in youth development activities.
