Srinagar, Mar 08 (KNS): People's democratic party chief, Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday said that the youth of Jammu and Kashmir are being lathi-charged because they want to question the Bhartiya Janta party (BJP) government as to why their future is being ruined.

Speaking to reporters, the PDP president and former chief minister said that the unemployed youth of J&K who are protesting are being lathi-charged just because they want to question the current government.

It's unfortunate that the youth who are protesting against the government move but they are being detained," she said, adding that strict action should be taken against those who are giving opportunity to this blacklisted company to operate here.

"Giving this company an opportunity to work here is nothing less than playing with the future of the youth here," Mehbooba said, adding that on the one hand, the government is firing people from their jobs and on the other hand, blacklisted companies are being brought here due to which the future of the youth here will become worse.(KNS)
