Mohammad Ashraf Mir said that since unemployment has been rising for the past few years and people are grappling with inflation and poverty in Jammu and Kashmir, the government ought to take adequate initiatives that will throw windows of opportunity open for the youth in the Union Territory. He said we are expecting the government will ensure that a way is paved for creating new opportunities for employment in J&K.
