JK: Back from 'capacity building tour',youths meet governor

Back from a 10-day Army sponsored tour outside Jammu and Kashmir, a group of 24 young men from border districts of Rajouri and Poonch today met Governor N N Vohra, an official spokesman said.

On the capacity building tour, the group visited places of interest relating to dairy farming sector in north India.

"Today, the young men met Vohra under the leadership of Lt Col C N Babu of 38 Rashtriya Rifles at the Raj Bhavan here," the spokesman said.

The governor urged them to establish small dairy units on scientific lines by availing technical and capital support from the entrepreneurship development and financial institutions in the state, the spokesman said.

He said the governor enquired from them about the places they had visited and the experiences which they had gained about the dairy farming sector.

"Vohra also stressed the importance of self employment and advised the youth to also take up poultry, fish farming and bee-keeping, besides dairying," the spokesman said.
