Kashmir has become a byword for unemployment, administrative inertia: Nasir
Srinagar : Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Tuesday said J&K is in deep throes of crises and the party has to live up to the expectations of people by walking shoulder to shoulder with them during the prevailing situation.
Party’s Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani addressed a meeting of block Amirakadal functionaries at Nawa-e-Subha Srinagar, a party spokesman said.
He said that in his address, Wani said the prevailing COVID-19 crises and the previous lock-down has affected every vital sector of J&K’s economy. He said the much touted development is not perceptible on ground and the local youth in particular are at the receiving end looking in the deep chasm of uncertainty. “Thousands of educated young women and men in Kashmir are bearing the brunt of unemployment and are struggling to find jobs. Prevailing economic crises and administrative inertia has compounded the scenario. The measures taken by GOI, and the subsequent fall out of the global pandemic has only increased the trepidation of the people. There is no accountability on ground and people have been left to fend for themselves,” spokesman quoted Wani as saying.
Wani further said that the valley of Kashmir has become a byword of widespread and inescapable poverty, unemployment, development deficit and administrative inertia, and the airdropped bureaucracy has failed to redress the issues of people.
Among others Party’s YNC president Salman Ali Sagar, women’s wing president Er. Sabiya Qadri, YNC VP Ahsan Pardesi,YNC President district Srinagar Khalid Rathore , Block President Rafiq Ellahi and other functionaries also spoke on the occasion.
