Lives and livelihood has been impacted in Jammu and Kashmir after the abrogation of article 370 on August 5, 2019. The youth have been at the receiving end of the situation and they are still waiting for high speed internet to be restored so that they carry on their normal lives.
Recently while speaking at CII, Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha called for unlocking the potential of Jammu Kashmir in a multi-dimensional fashion, through systemic interventions at the individual and community level. The purpose of such interventions is to effectively support and encourage young individuals to achieve their true potential, he said.
During his address, the Lt Governor underscored the significance of the Summit and observed that the theme – ‘Partnership for Lives, Livelihood & Growth’ is very important for two reasons- First, we have to realize that a country cannot exist as an island, and, secondly, each and every sector of our economy is interwoven.
Since we are pulling ourselves together to restart the engine of economic growth that was partially disrupted due to the global pandemic, we cannot live and grow alone. We have to be together to multiply comprehensive development in every sector, he added.
He further called for joint efforts by the Government, Private Enterprises, and Civil Society Groups to overcome Social, Ecological, and Economic challenges for a post-COVID world.
