Lead Jammu Kashmir out of morass: Mehbooba appeals youth


SRINAGAR, JUNE 5:  Urging the State's youth to rise above the rubble and become a part of the movement for peace and change, Chief Minister, Ms Mehbooba Mufti has said the young generation should become a potent voice to denounce violence which has only brought miseries to the people of Jammu and .

“Violence has no religion and it just consumes everybody. I urge J&K's youth to come forward and help us in making peace a reality in the State and ending the miseries of the people,” the Chief Minister said while addressing the participants of the Special Integration Camp-2016 organised by the National Cadet Corps (NCC) at JAK-LI Regimental Centre, here last evening.

“It was a very heart-rending day for me as immediately on my arrival here from Jammu this morning, I had to lay the ceremonial wreath on the mortal remains of the three BSF personnel killed in a dastardly militant attack near Bijbehara on Friday and then came this terrible news that two policemen ASI Bashir Ahmad of Laktipora, Aishmuqam and Constable Riyaz Ahmad of Utrasoo, Shangus were killed in similar circumstances at Anantnag,” she said and added that this senseless violence is not going to take us anywhere, except adding to the tragedies Kashmir has witnessed over the past more than two decades.

“We have to ponder over the gory saga of death and destruction being perpetuated in most of the Muslim countries around the including neighbouring Afghanistan and Pakistan where even schools and hospitals are not spared by the perpetrators of violence,” Ms Mehbooba said and added that Jammu and Kashmir has distinct religious and cultural ethos and the emancipated people of the State will never allow to get entrapped in such an ominous situation.

“I appeal our young boys and girls to take full advantage of the opportunities that are available to them and make their lives prosperous as they owe it to themselves, their families and the state, “she said.

“Fortunately most of our young boys and girls have already started excelling in various fields and most of them are now getting admission in IITs and IIMs besides qualifying for IAS, IPS, IFS and other prestigious competitive examinations to give a flying start to their careers,” she said.

Lauding the role of the National Cadet Corps (NCC) for bringing the youth from across the country together to instil a sense of social cohesion among them, the Chief Minister appreciated its commitment in grooming of Future Leaders of the country.

She appreciated said such programmes that help the youth to instil in them the sensitivity to the needs of poor and socially disadvantaged fellow citizens, inculcating habits of restraint and self-awareness and understanding the values of honesty, truthfulness, self-sacrifice, perseverance and hard work.

Around 400 NCC Cadets and staff representing all states and union territories of the country are participating in the Special National Integration camp.

The Chief Minister, on her arrival at the camp was received by Maj Gen SS Jakhar, Additional Director General NCC J&K under whose aegis the Special National Integration Camp is being conducted.

In his welcome address Maj Gen SS Jakhar informed the audience about the accomplishments of the NCC cadets from J&K, especially the girls. He said four NCC girl cadets from recently scaled the Mount Everest and several NCC cadets have joined the Army as Commissioned Officers.
