ISLAMABAD, Mar 21 (APP):Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Youth Affairs Usman Dar on Thursday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) government has prepared a four-year special plan to empower youth of the country.

The government will create job opportunities for them for their social uplift and well-being so that they could play a leading role in development of the country, he said this while talking to APP.

He said that the government under “Naya Pakistan Youth Programme” would empower maximum youth to enable them to become self reliant to play their due role in progress of the country.

He said that the progress of the country was directly linked to the effective role of youth, as without their economic and social uplift no nation can get progress.

He said the government has made a comprehensive strategy for their uplift by initiating several projects for them. He said that number of projects were planned to launch in month of April to address the issue of unemployment.

He said that PM’s youth affairs programme would extend its facilities to maximum youth for creating more employment opportunities in market place.

He said that marginalized youth such as disabled, rural youth and fresh graduates would also be beneficiaries of PMYA.

He said that the Prime Minister Imran Khan has always stressed on the role of youth for bringing a change and to utilize their hidden talent for progress of the country.
