KISHTWAR, July 2: National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) gave full support to Unemployed Engineers Association Kishtwar which is demanding adjustment of unemployed engineers in the Retlee Hydro electric project at Dhrabshalla in District Kishtwar.
The Unemployed Engineers Association along with members of NSUI staged a dharna against administration and blocked the road in front of District Development Commissioners Office for 4 hours by shouting slogans.
Unemployed Engineers said that despite their repeated assurances the District Administration has failed to take any action.
NSUI District president Kishtwar, Prakash Singh Dadwal claimed that Government is always making people fool by saying that these projects are for the unemployed local youths, adding that majority of staff in the project are from outside.
He warned that if Govt failed to adjust these youths in the Project, NSUI will intensify the protest at State level and the Govt will be responsible for the agitation.
The protest dharna, however, was called off on the assurance of DDC Kishtwar that he will discuss their genuine demands with the Project Management tomorrow and the decision will be taken accordingly.
