Youth of Kashmir want opportunities and a helping hand to showcase their worth. The the newly introduced Agnipath Scheme is what should have been implemented long before.
About the future of youth of Kashmir all the conscious individuals of the country are worried including the government of India.
Efforts are put in place to get the Kashmiri youth back into the mainstream and work for their development . Alot has been done to minimise the difficulties of the youth of Kashmir and to give them a helping hand. Though people of Kashmir are not poor but due to the unemployment people having vested interests are leaving no stone unturned to lure the young generation towards destruction and negativity. The cause of destruction of the valley which we experience from last more than three decades is due the efforts of neighbouring county which took advantage of the helplessness, unemployment and lack of other opportunities available to the young generation. But it gives immense pleasure while narrating the new stories full with positivity emerging from every corner of Kashmir. Youth of Kashmir from urban and farflug border areas of the valley are showing their skills in different fields.
Youth of Kashmir want opportunities’ and a helping hand to showcase their worth. The newly introduced Agnipath Scheme is what should have been implemented long before. Better late than never.
We have seen in past that in army’ recruitment drives in the valley youngsters in thousands appear to try their luck. The number of the participants in these requirement rallies surprise all and this rush itself speak volumes about the enthusiasm of the valley youth to be part if Indian Army. Agnipath scheme will surely fulfill dreams of the youth and this scheme will surely give diverse benefits to the nation . Agnipath if implemented with a little change in Kashmir will prove helpful to mainstreamise the radicalised youth of Kashmir and it will bring the youths more closer to the nation . Kashmir is much deserving region of the country where this scheme needs to be executed with certain additions and changes. On the other hand Indian Army task in Kashmir will become more earlier if it infuses Kashmir’s young blood in it. The society of Kashmir will come more closer to the nation more specifically to the Indian army which has a big role to play to protect Kashmir from the enemies. As has rightly been said by defence minister
Rajnath Singh ” The ‘Agnipath’ scheme approved by the CCS chaired by Prime Minister Shri @narendramodi is a truly transformative reform which will enhance the combat potential of the Armed Forces, with younger profile and technologically adept soldiers.”
The youth of any country is a great asset as they are future of the country and represent it at every level. The role of youthin nation-building is more important than rest all . The youth will take the country on the pathway of success if guide properly and given opportunities to serve the nation. Youth is building blocks of a country and needs special attention always. The youth of Kashmir is aware of their power and the role they have to play in nation-building and hopefully they will follow the Agnipath to make Kashmir a better place to live.
