Alarming rate of unemployment in JK: NC
Srinagar February: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Wednesday stated the claim of the incumbent government to provide 80 percent jobs in next 5 years was farfetched in wake of the ‘sluggish’ recruitment process, and absence of any effective job policy.
In a press release issued here, NC said that government must see the plight of skilled, and well educated unemployed and added that the educated youth of Kashmir see an uncertain future in wake of absence of any effective job policy, absence of private sector and failure of the government on its promise of accelerating the recruitment process in JKSSB and JKPSC. “Jammu and Kashmir is undergoing a youth bump, where nearly 70% of the population constitutes of youth. However, the majority of the youth are unemployed. The scenario has aggravated due to the absence of any policy intervention from the government since 2015. The appalling policy of August 5 has further compounded the woes of our youth upon whom the other avenues of employment were also closed post august 5, 2019,” Party’s Additional Spokesperson Sarah Hayat Shah said in the press release.
