Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday met Nabeel Ahmad Wani, a young man from Udhampur in Jammu and Kashmir, who topped the BSF entrance exams this year.

Singh tweeted the picture of his meeting with Wani and also said that his success would inspire many young boys and girls in Kashmir.

Wani was accompanied by Director General of BSF, K K Sharma when he met the Home Minister, who also wished Wani success and bright future in life.

The Home Minister also introduced Wani to top officials, including NSA Ajit Doval, Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi and others, who had come for a meeting with Singh during that time.

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 said that he felt unemployment was the biggest problem being faced by the youth which can only be solved by education.

Wani, who is currently serving a junior engineer in Udhampur district, said it was his dream to join the defence forces and serve the country which has now been fulfilled.

Wani had given the examination in 2013, but had lagged behind by some marks.

“I want to serve the country, bring laurels for the nation, and work with 100 percent dedication and honesty,” 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 also expressed satisfaction that his father’s dream of him joining the armed forces as an officer was fulfilled.

Wani secured top rank in the Border Security Force’s Assistant Commandant (works) examination, which was held on 26 July by the Union Public Service Commission.
