Jammu, Dec 31 : Governor N N Vohra has expressed concern over the “growing” unemployment of technically qualified youth in the state.
“Arising from a memorandum presented to Governor N N Vohra by All J&K Unemployed Agriculture Graduates Association, the Governor has addressed Chief Minister and expressed concern about the growing unemployment of technically qualified youth in the state,” the Raj Bhavan spokesperson said in a statement.

The governor has urged the state government to start exploring all possible avenues, outside the governmental fold, to enable technically qualified youth become self-employed.
The spokesperson in a statement said the memorandum states that while about 1200 vacancies of AEOs/JAEOs are available, the agriculture production department “has taken no action to refer them to the concerned recruiting agencies.”
The governor has impressed that all the departments concerned should assess the “to-date position in regard to available vacancies and refer them most urgently to the concerned recruiting agencies and, side by side, they must take the required initiatives to devise fresh approaches/new policies to provide meaningful opportunities for the self-employment of all technically qualified youth.”
