SRINAGAR, Nov 26: Questioning approach of Jammu and Kashmir administration towards the problem of unemployment, Aam Aadmi Party’s Youth wing Kashmir province incharge, Muddasir Hasan said that Government has failed to provide any relief to the educated unemployed youth with no proper job policy in hands.
Addressing a press conference, here today, Muddasir Hasan said that unemployment is a burning issue of Jammu and Kashmir where unemployment rate was between fifteen and sixteen percent in 2016 but has swelled to thirty two percent and this shows that unemployment is now a major issue here. He alleged that no job policy in the hands of Government is worsening the situation and putting unemployed youth in a tight situation.
” On one hand LG administration claims that a large scale Government employment avenues have been created for educated youth but everyone knows that a number of such recruitment processes like that of Police SI, JE recruitment, FAA have fallen flat and irregularities got exposed fusing these claims of employment,” said Muddasir Hasan.
He said that from last four years, Jammu and Kashmir LG administration has not even devised a proper job policy for youth and tall claims of industrialisation have also fallen flat thus diminishing the chances of flourish of private industrial sector. “Not only unemployed youth, but employees one’s including daily wagers are also on roads due to poor policies of Government,” he added.
” Hundreds of daily wagers of Power Development Department have lost their lives, hundreds are having permanent injuries while thousands are having minor to medium scale injuries due to electric shocks received while working and this all is due to non availability of safety equipments and this shows that Government is least concerned about life of these workers,” Hasan said.
He asked LG administration to come out of its slumber and make some elaborate arrangements and devise policies to deal with burning issues like unemployment, grievances of employees.
Muddasir Hasan also mentioned about success of Aam Aadmi Party Governments in Punjab and Delhi where large scale new employment avenues have been generated besides regularisation of services of serving daily wagers.
