Modi Government Is Promoting Agri Start-ups For Youth In J&K: Jitendra Singh

As a result, the region’s immense potential for entrepreneurship and self-livelihood remained unexplored, he said while addressing an interactive meet of Agricultural start-ups and farmers.

While slamming the previous government for ignoring the region, Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Friday said that they deliberately discouraged start-ups in Jammu and Kashmir, including in the Kashmir valley, so that the youth could remain perpetually dependent on salaried government jobs and continue hanging around the political masters of the day. 

As a result, the region’s immense potential for entrepreneurship and self-livelihood remained unexplored, he said while addressing an interactive meet of Agricultural start-ups and farmers. 

“This is for the first time in the last few years that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the concerted and technology-based effort has been made to promote the agriculture sector for young Startups in the region. Whereas in the past, the farmers and the agriculturists would largely depend upon the mood of climate and vagaries of nature for cultivation, in the last few years, new areas like, for example, Lavender cultivation have been explored at a large scale both in the Kashmir valley in the areas around Gulmarg etc. as well as in the Jammu region in districts Doda and Reasi,” Singh said.  

The Minister also said that no government in any country of the world can ensure 100 per cent salaried government jobs to every youth, but a responsible government always plans to promote the means of livelihood and this is precisely what the Modi government is trying to seek. 

He said, “A sustained awareness campaign needs to be launched among the youth and their parents to educate them that there are much more lucrative emoluments available through these self-livelihood and new Start-ups options and, therefore, they should not be led to waste their time and energy in protesting for government salaried jobs.”
