Excelsior Correspondent
NEW DELHI, Aug 23:  Dr Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Science & Technology and Earth Sciences, MoS in Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions, Space & Atomic Energy, today called on Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and urged upon him to resume the recruitment camps in Kathua and Udhampur districts for enrolment of youth in paramilitary forces including CRPF and BSF.
In a detailed written document submitted to the Home Minister, Dr Jitendra Singh narrated the sequence of events and explained how till about 10 years ago, such camps were being regularly held in these two districts but were thereafter discontinued without assigning any valid reason.
The document submitted by Dr Jitendra Singh also highlighted the inherently superior physical attributes of the youth hailing from these areas which makes them particularly fit for forces because of their well built physique and higher physical endurance.
Dr Jitendra Singh said that resumption of recruitment camps in this area will not only help the forces to attract better quality of  personnel for serving the defence forces but will also go a long way in addressing wide spread unemployment among the youth in the area.
He also requested the Home Minister that in addition to resumption of suspended recruitment process in Kathua and Udhampur districts, fresh recruitment process should also be initiated in the peripheral districts of Doda, Kishtwar and Ramban, so that youth in these districts are motivated to join the ranks of Indian forces instead of being tempted to join the ranks of militants.
