While inaugurating Jambu Zoo at Nagrota in Jammu, LG Manoj Sinha said that his administration is trying to make the infrastructure within the timelines set by the agencies.
He reiterated the commitment of the J & K Government to empower every section of the society, especially the youth in achieving the goals of sustainable and inclusive development.
Our youth are the architects of New Jammu Kashmir and we are seeing steady rise in youth entrepreneurs, who are working with dedication to build a prosperous society and preserve our civilizational-cultural values and our commitment to peace.
He said the historic G20 Summit and reformative youth-centric endeavours of the UT Government have opened up endless opportunities for the socio-economic empowerment of the youth of Jammu Kashmir.
Within just one year, more than 82,000 business units have been established, providing 2.85 lakh youth with direct employment opportunities. Under Mission Youth, we have extended handholding to 70,000 young boys and girls to become self-reliant.
He said under the Languishing Project, J&K UT has successfully completed 1500 projects which were pending for the last 10 to 20 years.
Our cities are being transformed into smart cities and our villages are getting more integrated into the mainstream development. The basic infrastructure is being strengthened to realize the potential of every region.
