He said youth development was the vision of the Founder of the country Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Prime Minister Imran Khan has full confidence in youth of the country and is ensuring provision of employment opportunities to them.
Imran Ismail on the occasion also announced setting up of help desk for the youth facing any kind of difficulties in KJP.
Speaking on the occasion, Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Youth Affairs Usman Dar said that Prime Minister Imran Khan always termed the youth as the most important National asset and has launched KJP for youth development.
He said despite the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, Rs. 32 billion were disbursed among the youth under KJP. In Sindh 8 billion were disbursed out of which Rs. 5 billion were given to youngsters of Karachi for establishing their start-ups. In the karachi Central, five hundred crore rupees are being disbursed. Kamyab Jawan is creating jobs for youth of the country, Dar stated.
