The experts held intensive discussion with the youths and explained them the importance of peaceful life with dignity. The event was chaired by Colonel Raj Kumar Mahajan, CO 28 RR.

“In order to prevail peace in the Valley, we have given job appointments to the nine youth in different sectors like hotel industry, Petrol Pumps, Cotton industries across India. This will help them lead a good life with their family,” Mahajan told ANI.

Unemployment is one of the key reason which pushes youths towards extremism in the valley.

Those who get the jobs through this event praised the efforts of Indian Army.

“We are very thankful that they have given us a good opportunity. We belong to a family that cannot afford things that they have provided us. This job opportunity will help our family to grow,” Shabir Ahmad, a beneficiary said.
