Jammu: Arising from a Memorandum presented to Governor N.N. Vohra by All J&K Un-employed Agriculture Graduates Association, the Raj Bhavan spokesperson has informed that governor has addressed Chief Minister and expressed concern about the growing unemployment of technically qualified youth and urged that state government should start exploring all possible avenues, outside governmental fold, to enable technically qualified youth to become self-employed.

Spokesperson informed that memorandum states that while about 1200 vacancies of AEOs/JAEOs are available, the Agriculture Production Department has taken no action to refer them to concerned recruiting agencies.
