National Conference President Farooq Abdullah on Wednesday said the coalition government in Jammu and Kashmir was serious about addressing the issue of unemployment.
"The NC-led government in the state is serious about addressing the unemployment problem and in this connection the government is doing its best to expand tourism, agriculture, horticulture and handicraft sectors," Abdullah said in Srinagar.
Interacting with various delegations who called on him at his Gupkar residence, the Union minister for New and Renewable Energy said, "the state government is duty bound to mitigate the problems of the people."
"It is the moral duty of the government to look into the problems of the people and make all out effort to find solutions to these problems," he said.
Hearing a delegation from Lolab in Kupwara, led by Youth National Conference President Qaiser Jamshaid Lone, Abdullah assured that his ministry would provide solar lights to the backward areas shortly.
