Youth PDP Imparts ‘Training’ to Shopian Youth



Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) youth wing organized a “day long youth convention-cum-counselling” an open day for youth in Shopian district of Kashmir.

Stating that the young people have a proven capability to “lead change”, and are a vital and valuable investment for now and the future, PDP youth President and Political Analyst in CM’s office, Waheed-Ur-Rehman Para, said such things demand “revision of youth, coordinated efforts and unity to safeguard their own interests in Jammu and Kashmir”.

Speaking on the occasion, Para said, “We will promote the professionalization of youth work by supporting youth work education and training and setting competency standards.”

“The Kashmir horticulture is one of the prominent economic sectors of the state. Known for the wide variety of fruits and flowers, the horticultural sector forms the backbone of the economy of Jammu and Kashmir and contributes around three thousand Crore to the annual income of the state of Jammu and Kashmir,” said Waheed-Ur-Rehman Para.

During the convention, Para also inaugurated the cricket tournament in the district and said, “Government is committed to revive the sports culture in the state and provide talented youth an opportunity to refine and showcase their skills.”

He further added that massive sports infrastructure is being created across the State and government is making all out efforts to organize more and more sports events in the state adding that sports help in channelizing the energy of the youth towards constructive purposes and help in their overall personality development.

Speaking on the occasion a leading entrepreneur Khurram Mir said, “Kashmir Economy depends mostly on traditional form of occupation. Unaffected and unaltered by modern day industrial developments and changing times, the indigenous traditional occupations of farming, animal husbandry and horticulture forms the backbone of the economy of the state of Jammu and Kashmir.”

Mir also enlightened the youth regarding fruit production, storage, ripening and primary processing techniques. Mir encouraged youth to indulge in horticulture sector and start the journey from being unemployed to self-employed.

CM’s Grievance Cell Project Director Saadut Hussein also listened to the grievances of the area and assured them quick and necessary action.
