Srinagar, Aug 04: Youth National Conference (YNC) Thursday said that Kashmiri youth are increasingly becoming restless due to the wanton discrimination meted out to them by the incumbent administration.
According to a statement from the NC, this was said by the provincial president YNC, Kashmir Salman Ali Sagar, while addressing a one day convention of YNC's provincial, zone, and district functionaries here at Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar.
On the occasion a resolution, denouncing the “unconstitutional assault” on J&K on Aug 5, 2019, was unanimously passed.
Addressing the youth functionaries, Salman Sagar said that the vices of insecurity, unemployment, absence of administrative support and an enabling environment are not allowing our promising youth to perform.
“Confronted with the widespread insecurity, identity crises and unemployment for half a decade now, our youth have become vulnerable to a plethora of psychological problems, while many have taken to drug addiction and substance abuse," he said.
He further added, “Personality crisis induced by the August 05 decisions and resultant acute challenges of survival have turned them into the sheer despondent and alienated beings. There is no end to the brewing alienation among our youth. Everyday job scams, recruitment irregularities, outsourcing of jobs and contracts, sluggish recruitment process and little to no support for entrepreneurship development is further deepening their woes.”
The functionaries, who spoke on the occasion, strongly protested against the Aug 05 2019 decisions. They said the youth whom they talk to recount mistreatment, bias and administrative apathy being meted out to them in every office.
