Excelsior Correspondent

JAMMU, Sept 19: Apni Party provincial president Jammu and former Minister, Manjit Singh has said that youth have pinned their hopes with Apni Party as the party has protected the land and job rights of the youth of Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing a one day youth convention which was organized by district youth president, Jammu Urban, Shivam Choudhary, Manjit Singh said that the Apni Party has emerged as a hope for the people who have lost their faith in traditional political parties i.e., BJP, Congress Party, PDP and National Conference (NC) as they mislead the young generation with their false slogans and assurances.
He said that “The feeling of alienation is growing among the educated youth amid poor chances of employment opportunities in the last five years. The recruitments which were conducted in these years turned out to be major scams and hence the recruitments were cancelled without taking into account the difficulties of the aspirants who will become over aged.”
He said that the recruitment agency was responsible for the unfair selection process and therefore, the aspirants should not be punished.
In the absence of job opportunities, he said, unemployment has grown in J&K in a historic manner. J&K has never seen such a job crisis ever in the last 70 years and the Government has failed to address the issues.
“These issues are surfacing because of the inability of the Government and bureaucracy which works in AC rooms and takes decisions without taking into account the lasting effect on the lives of the general masses especially people,” he added.
He said that to end the suffering of the common masses and the youth, there is an urgent need to hold Assembly elections in J&K as early as possible and restoration of Statehood is must.
Meanwhile, State general secretary, Youth Wing, Abhay Bakaya, said that the youth have no hopes with the present Government.
“The youth have been disappointed with the harsh decisions which have snatched a chance of employment from them,” he added.
Provincial President Youth Wing, Vipul Bali also spoke on the occasion and highlighted various issues being confronted by the educated unemployed youth as it has given rise to psychological issues.
