Harvard US- India Initiative Conference-2021

JAMMU, Feb 6: Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha today delivered the keynote address at the Harvard US-India Initiative (HUII) Annual Conference through virtual mode.
HUII aims to engage students around the world in a dialogue about India’s most pressing political, social, economic, and environmental challenges, providing the youth an opportunity to hear from inspiring leaders and be a part of the discussion with them. The Lt Governor, while addressing the students and notable speakers from across the world, remarked that Youth carrying immense knowledge, wisdom and energy is going to build a new future, brick by brick. They need not follow conventional wisdom or a crowd and must realize who they are & what they want.
“Be yourself. Your knowledge is about creating a new vision of life”, the Lt Governor to the Youth.
Quoting Chanakya, the Lt Governor said- “The world’s biggest power is Youth.” And, India with more than 50% of its population below the age of 25 years and more than 65% below the age of 35 years is not only a hope for the world, but also a crucial growth driver in the post-Covid scenario, he added.
“I sincerely believe that India, with a huge young and talented population, friendly ecosystem and the trust we have managed to build that we can deliver on promises, has allowed the nation to emerge as a popular destination for global entrepreneurs and corporates”, said the Lt Governor.
India is ready to be the fulcrum of a new world order that is more just, humane, industrious, mutually beneficial and empowering, he maintained.
The Lt Governor said that the Youth is the most aware being on this planet, having potential to awaken humanity. It is this call that entrusts a bounden duty on Youth to persuade errant youth lost in conflicts and other disruptive activities the world over to come back to mainstream marking another unrealized dimension of youth potential.
Speaking on the new dawn of developmental change Jammu and Kashmir is witnessing, the Lt Governor observed that the narrative has changed now. Development has replaced terror that our neighbor has been relentlessly exports.
From the very first day in office, I have adopted a targeted approach to address the issues pertaining to poverty, health, nutrition, gender equality, quality education, skill development of youth etc, and have ensured that benefits of government schemes reach the last mile. For equitable development, I gave the mantra of Jan Bhageedari- People's Participation, the Lt Governor said.
Multipronged strategies involving all necessary systemic interventions have been adopted. With schemes like ‘Mission Youth’ and ‘Mumkin’, dedicated focus was given on Livelihood Generation, Education, Skill development, Career Counseling and Financial Assistance providing the necessary handholding to the youth, he maintained.
“My goal is to reach out and engage about 80% of the young population of Jammu and Kashmir within the next five years and make it possible for them to be an engine of growth for the overall socio-economic transformation of the UT”, observed the Lt Governor.
“I would like to see each child of J&K prosper into a mature, successful and good human being. The potential of the youth is harnessed in a way that everyone contributes towards the prosperity of the UT. Together we will achieve the desired goal”, concluded the Lt Governor.
Later, an interactive session was held wherein the Lt Governor answered the queries of the participating students about the present developmental scenario of J&K.
