Educated JK youth being pushed towards wall: Sagar
Post by RK News on Tuesday, March 14, 2023
Srinagar, Mar 13: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar on Monday said increased prevalence of drug addiction among youth is a physical manifestation of the sordid anti youth policies of the incumbent government pushing already aggrieved educated and skilled youth towards wall.
This he said while addressing party functionaries, workers and public delegations at the party headquarters Nawa-e-Subha, Srinagar.
Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani, State Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar, Social Media In Charge Sarah Hayat Shah were also present on the occasion.
Expressing concern over the plight of skilled educated youth, Sagar said it seems that the present day government gives two hoots about what happens to our educated, skilled unemployed youth.
“How shameful is the fact that list after list is being annulled; not even a day passes when one or the other selection list doesn’t end up in a scam. The very future of our educated youth is being played with,” he said.
Sagar said most of the aspirants have crossed their upper age limits and won’t be able to apply for the same posts in the future. He said the government is answerable why the merit of our youth is being robbed under broad daylight.
He further said that it was perhaps for the first time that the roots of corruption in the recruiting agencies in J&K could be traced to other parts of the country.
“We get to hear that norms were relaxed and even widely tainted firms, blacklisted in several states, are being accorded contracts of conducting exams here in J&K,” he said.
Accusing the Jammu and Kashmir administration of being indifferent to the plight of J&K youth, who he said were turning to drugs out of joblessness and ensuing frustration. While expressing solidarity with the aggrieved aspirants, Sagar said, “The unbending attitude of the government had pushed the aggrieved aspirants to take to the streets in protest. Nothing significant is being done to allay the apprehensions of our youth.”
The former minister demanded that the LG administration should rise to the occasion and take necessary measures for the larger benefit of the youth of Jammu and Kashmir.
