Saying the obtaining era of entrepreneurship holds promise to self reliance, growth, productivity and job generation, Senior BJP leader Mr Devender Singh Rana today exhorted youth to be the part of the country's odyssey to progress and prosperity."Remember, every destination is reached by a small but a firm first step", Mr Devender Rana said while launching a business venture on the national highway at Channi Himmat here this afternoon.He said history of the business world stands testimony to the fact that every big enterprise owes genesis to the grit, determination and hardwork put in to the humble beginning at the launching stages. The success smiles at those who work in team spirit with honest intent, he said, adding that the modern day entrepreneurship has vistas of opportunities to grow and succeed.
Mr Rana appreciated the change in the mindset of youth about taking up challenges than hankering after white collar jobs, as the entrepreneurship has not only the prospect of leading a good life but also deriving the satisfaction of being a job provider. This positive approach and progressive vision could be beneficial to the society as a whole. Being a job provider is a real thrill, he said, adding that drive and initiative among youth in establishing profit generating units could be answer to burgeoning unemployment in a place like Jammu and Kashmir, where joblessness is increasing due to limited number of openings in the government sector, the only job generator in the absence of industrial and corporate sectors thus far. However, the scenario is changing fast with huge investments pouring in due to sustained efforts of the government, he observed.
