Unit has met Chief Ministers and Governors of erstwhile state, Lieutenant Governors of the newly formed UT about the issue of the clearance, but there was no response from the government.

Dr Sameer Choudhary, president NSYF said that the government was denying them employment opportunities. The fight for the backlog will go on and Government should accept the pending demand of the youth of these categories.
