Denouncing the violence in any form, he appealed to the youths engaged in stone pelting in the valley to shun the path of violence and engage themselves in constructive activities as violence in no way can be the seen as a mean for achieving any objective.
The Speaker said that the state has witnessed violence for so long and it has seen destruction and deaths all over for decades together and lost the generation of his men in this continued violence deeply affecting the overall socio–economic activity in the state which has hampered the development of the society in general and the youth of the state in particular.
Maintaining that the development of the people and the State should be made the primary objective and for its realization the youths should come forward with innovative ideas and should be encouraged to participate in decision making as they got the requisite energy and talent and that should be utilized properly for achieving the goal of a welfare state and the youths are the foundation for achieving this objective, he said.
