The topper of the BSF Assistant Commandant’s exam, Nabeel Ahmed Wani, feels that unemployment is the biggest problem being faced by the youth which can only be solved by education.
The resident of Jammu and Kashmir said it was his dream to join the defence forces and serve the country which has now been fulfilled.
Terming unemployment as the biggest problem, he said, “The more we get education the better and more jobs we will get.”
“We cannot get education by taking to stones but by holding a pen,” Wani, who is currently a Junior Engineer in Udhampur, said.
“I had made it my aim to join the defence forces. I had appeared in various exams including the armed forces and BSF.
I am happy I topped BSF Assistant Commandant’s exams,” he said.
Wani had lost his father, who was a teacher by profession, some years ago.
“I belong to a village. We had no sources but my mother and father supported me. I did my engineering from Punjab and obtained the first rank in the exams,” he said.
He also expressed satisfaction that his father’s dream of him joining the armed forces as an officer was fulfilled.
