JAMMIKUNTA (KARIMNAGAR DT): To keep the rural youth off naxalite influence, the district police have embarked upon an ambitious task of providing proper career guidance and counselling to them.

As part of the programme, the police have been conducting `yuvatha meloku' (awakening of youth) programme in all police station limits since last year. The second phase of the campaign was launched in Jammikunta mandal headquarters on Friday by inviting youth club members of Kamalapur and Veenavanka mandals also.

Superintendent of Police Devendra Singh Chouhan participated as chief guest and interacted with the rural youth.

Counselling centre

Youth counselling centre was also inaugurated at the Circle-Inspector's office at Jammikunta. The CI along with experts in various fields will conduct counselling programme weekly once. The SP said that similar counselling centres would be set up in other parts of the district in a phased manner.

The SP called upon the youth to form clubs and actively participate in social service in their villages. After counselling, youths were being absorbed as private security guards, home guards, TV and radio mechanics. He also prevailed upon youth club members to participate in the regulation of traffic and other social service activities in villages. He also distributed sports kits to six youth clubs. The SP also took part in the community lunch along with the police personnel.

Retired principal Mallikarjun, Assistant Engineer Rajitha, who were born and bought from the same mandal, explained how one could excel in his or her career.
