UT Govt must address unemployment problems as same touching new heights in J&K: Vakil

Jammu Jan 2 (KNS) : Jammu and Kashmir Peoples Conference Sr. Vice President and Former Minister, Abdul Gani Vakil today said the bureaucratic system forced upon on the people of J&K has failed at every front.

Unemployment is touching new heights, apple sector is in losses, developmental work is in name only and the ruling dispensation is restricted to press statements making lofty claims while on the ground the situation is pathetic.There is no sense of security. Innocent people are being killed and people at large feel unsafe. GoI must end the prevalent bureaucratic Raj and allow the popular government to be elected without delay.

Vakil was addressing party workers' at PC Headquarters in Gandhi Nagar, Jammu. While addressing the meeting, Vakil asserted that promises and claims made by the UT Government which included jobs for thousands of educated youth have not yielded any results so far and today the situation is such that the unemployment rate of J&K is at record high of 23 percent which proves the fact that promises made by Union Territory Government for the unemployed youth have proved to be a damp squib, thereby resulting in further pushing the youth to the wall.
Vakil also criticized the UT government for not taking serious measures to curb drug menace in J&K and it's unfortunate that a large percentage of youth is involved in drug addiction. Though, tall claims are made to throttle the menace it is all but white lies.  
Vakil also urged the people to be wary of these forces who have been exploiting the youth, by giving misleading slogans to gain power. He described youth empowerment as an important aspect of every democratic process and the main agenda and vision of our party is youth and their welfare. The meeting was addressed by PC Vice President, Syed Basharat Bukhari, and General Secretary, Mansoor Hussain Suharwadi. While addressing the meeting both the leaders stressed that corruption has reached at its peak in J&K which has been clear by the recruitment policy of the government which lacks both credibility and transparency.
The recent recruitment processes have come under scanner leaving the aspiring applicants hopeless. The meeting was presided by Sri Mohan Lal Radha, District President Jammu.(KNS)
