Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference on Thursday expressed dismay over the government’s non-serious attitude towards the grievances of students and JKSSB aspirants protesting against hiring tainted APTECH firm for conducting professional exams.

With the chorus for banning APTECH getting louder, YNC Provincial President Salman Ali Sagar, Provincial Vice President Ahsan Pardesi, Provincial Spokesperson Ifra Jan, and YNC functionaries joined the peaceful sit-in of the JKSSB aspirants at the press enclave Srinagar.

While expressing solidarity with the aggrieved aspirants, they said, “The unbending attitude of the government had pushed the aggrieved aspirants to take to the streets in protest. Nothing significant is being done to allay the apprehensions of the job aspirants, it seems that the government doesn’t give two hoots about what our educated youth are going through. Far from reaching out to aggrieved aspirants, the administration is resorting to highhandedness. In doing so the administration is letting slip its real face. Why is the future of hundreds of job aspirants being put into the hands of those who lack credibility?”

Demanding that the LG administration should rise to the occasion and take necessary measures for the larger benefit of the youth of Jammu and Kashmir, the functionaries said, “We are concerned about the future of our youth as they are crossing the age limit due to the failure of the administration to complete the recruitment process on time. How many times do they have to appear for the same exam repeatedly,” adding, “Our youth are submitting forms, paying money. Why should they pay hefty amounts for a blacklisted company? The decision of the government to continue with the blacklisted company reveals how deeply entrenched corruption is in Jammu and Kashmir and how alienated the government is from the issues concerning people, particularly unemployed and educated youth.”

They demanded that the JKSSB conduct the exams by utilizing the services of credible agencies.
