Union Minister Jitendra Singh today said job fairs would be organised in every district of Jammu and Kashmir to provide employment opportunities to youths.


"We will organise job fairs in every district because we had come with the slogans of development," Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office Singh said here while addressing a gathering of party workers.

"We will have job fair, first of its kind in July in the town of Kathua," Singh said, adding that in this regard he has talked to a major company.

"I had discussions with them. They will hold a placement camp. If this is successful, it will continue in all the districts," he added.

Set to reach out to the educated unemployed youth, he said, "We owe the debit of youths who have worked hard for us during the electioneering."

"The state will soon have an emergency number facility in health sector, he said, adding "we have prepared proposal for 100 ambulances for the state."

Referring to the completion of Ganpath bridge on Chenab river in Doda, he said that, "the document on it is being prepared and General Reserve Engineer Force will construct the bridge."

"We are also preparing proposal of construction of another bridge in Kathua on Ravi river in Kiniya gadayal," the Minister said.
