Kashmiri migrant pandits shave their heads shouts slogans to protest demonstration against state government at partap Park in Srinagar on Sunday.

SRINAGAR, June 10:To intensify their struggle 22 protestors from YAIKS among odd 200 volunteers of the organization who are in Summer Capital to register their protest against the failure of Government to implement the PM’s employment package in letter and spirit here today tonsured their heads to give momentum to their ongoing struggle.
After being dampened by the Government which failed to implement the much talked about PM’s employment package of 6000 jobs for KPs youth announced by Dr Manmohan Singh in 2008 in letter and spirit and its failure to respect its own commitments made with the displaced youth and Apex Committee by none other than Chief Minister Omar Abdullah himself, the YAIKS was left with no alternative but to resume its dharna in Summer Capital from June 5.
To intensify its struggle YAIKS has decided to continue the day and night demonstration from today till Government issues appointment orders with regard to filling up of pending 1500 posts and remaining 3000 posts under State sponsorship as announced in PM’s package. The list of these candidates is already lying with the recruitment agency.
R. K. Bhat President YAIKS and Member Apex Advisory Committee who took strong exception to the silence maintained by the Government said hundreds of displaced youth who are on protest will not leave Valley till orders are issued. He said Government is making claims for the return of Kashmiri Pandits, but it has failed to address their burring issues. He accused the State Government of not acting on PMs’ directions which shows their non- seriousness over the return issue.
He warned that in case the Government continuously maintains criminal silence on the issue the KP youth will be forced to take any extreme step and Government will be responsible for the same.
He alleged that a lobby in the Government and bureaucracy is totally working against the community interests resulting in delaying the implementation of package and appealed the Chief Minister to save the future of hundreds of displaced youth.
Others who spoke on the occasion include Sunil Koul, Manoj Handoo , Ajay Safaya, Sandeep Bhat , Sanjay Pandita, Sunil Koul and Anil Munshi.
