In paradigm shift, Kashmiri youth flock to Army
Army on Wednesday said a large number of Kashmiri youth enrolling for recruitment in the force was a “positive change” and a very encouraging trend.

“It is a positive change. We understand that the way people worked during the floods and their engagement with the army under (Operation) Sadbhawna as well as under the sports activities organised by the army to engage the youth and focused tours ? all this has had a combined effect and that is why a large number of youth are coming up for recruitment,” General Officer Commanding of the Srinagar-based Chinar Corps, Lt Gen Subrata Saha said here. The army commander said more than 700 youths from Kashmir were recruited in the army in the last five months of 2014.

“Last year, from July to December, 767 Kashmiri youths have enrolled in the army. We understand that Kashmiri youth coming for recruitment in large numbers is very encouraging and 25,000 youths had come for 1301 vacancies recently.”
