Speaking to a delegation of youth here, the chief minister said they held a promise for the state in terms of forging new bonds of amity, equality and brotherhood. She said the younger generation was better equipped to defeat negative perceptions about regions, communities and groups which, she said, were based on ignorance, lack of information and education.
Mufti asked the youth to rise above the distinctions of caste, creed, colour and region, and work for the development of the state. She appealed to them to work together to maintain peace and communal harmony.
She said with the unfolding of the Prime Minister's Development Project (PMDP) in the state, basic infrastructure, sports facilities and employment opportunities for the youth would get a massive boost.
Mufti added that technical education was being given a thrust to make more and more youth employable and self-sufficient.
