Need to address JK’s unemployment crises apolitically: Kadfeen

Accuses Govt of playing dangerous games with jobless youth through new recruitment rules

Srinagar, June 05 (KNS): Congress leader Kadfeen Choudhary on Friday slammed government over plunging the jobless youth of Jammu and Kashmir further into crises, stating that the new recruitment drives aren’t doing any good to the qualified unemployed youth of the state.
In a statement issued to KNSD, he stated that no less than 12- 13 lack youth of the state are jobless and at least two lac educated youth are working on meagre amount of 150 rupees a day.
Kadfeen said that as per the government’s own figures, among educated unemployed youth in Jammu and Kashmir, 54.9 percent youth are from rural areas while the remaining are from urban areas. “People with Post graduate degrees in their possession are more than 20 thousand. In valley there are more than 29034 graduates who are unemployed and in Jammu province the number of jobless graduates is 12426. Kashmir division has 46703 people jobless who have passed 10+2 in various streams while as in Jammu the number is 27212,” said Kadfeen.
He maintained that the government instead of framing new rules for recruitment to make entry of non- state subjects possible in the government jobs, should have taken into consideration the swelling numbers of unemployment among the local youth of Jammu and Kashmir.
He demanded that the government instead of macadamizing the detours for the non- state subjects should prioritize providing relief to the local jobless youth and address the crises of unemployment apolitically.(KNS)
