Women in Politics
LEH, Tuesday, December 6, 2016 :

Rinchen Lamo - Nominated Councillor for Women: In our society, the participation of women in politics is very less because women feel hesitate to stand in this field. If we say there is no skill and leadership quality than it is wrong because women strength cannot be compared with anyone.  They have the capabilities to raise a family, to look after the home and profession in a very balanced way. Today we see lots of successful women in different fields but yes, there is a need for empowerment and upliftment.

Firstly, the head or leader of the village, secondly, the people and thirdly, the future generation.  A leader can be anyone be it religious, political, family and many more.

Unemployment
LEH, Wednesday, August 17, 2016 :
Dr. Shah Faesal, Director School Education (DSE): I think the unemployment rate in the state of J&K is high due to the absence of a vibrant private sector and lack of adequate opportunities in the Government sector.

handicrafts that used to employ a huge number of people in early days.
