"Stone-pelting will not yield anything but will definitely increase the difficulties for the people in the Valley," Kashmir Inspector General of Police (IGP) S M Sahai said after inaugurating a Youth Club in Handwara in Kupwara district yesterday.
He appealed to the youth, particularly to the students, to cooperate with police in maintaining peace in the Valley.
"The youth are the asset for the nation and there is a need to hone their capabilities and latent talents," Sahai said.
The IGP said that the state police has initiated some steps in this regard and the youth should make best of these opportunities.
Kashmiri youth are full of talent and the need is to provide them opportunities to display their talents so that they not only make a name for themselves but also bring laurels to the state, he said.
In order to provide platform to the youth in sports, police has started Youth Clubs in every district, he said, adding besides providing space for sports activities, internet facilities are also being provided so that the youth can get information regarding the employment opportunities outside the state and the country.
Sahai said as a welfare measure, state police is going to open a Police Public School in Baramulla district and soon another school will be opened in Kupwara.
