In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference has said that the 18.3 percent unemployment rate in the territory shows the Narendra Modi-led Indian fascist government’s failure in providing jobs to the skilled and educated Kashmiri youth.
According to Kashmir Media Service, the NC spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar in a statement in Srinagar said yet again the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) has put the unemployment rate in IIOJK at staggering 18.3 percent.
He maintained that the figures have laid bare the hoax of much touted job extravaganza promised by the Modi regime after the unconstitutional abrogation of Article 370 on August 5, 2019.
The NC spokesperson said, our educated youth see no light at the end of the tunnel and the authorities are doing nothing to help them. Lack of substantial policy intervention to give a flip to entrepreneurship, fast-tracking of recruitment, and protecting the employment interests of our youth is a far cry and not in the to-do list of the authorities, he added.
On the other hand, Indian Congress party’s working president in IIOJK, Raman Bhalla, addressing party workers and other functionaries in Kathua area of Jammu region said the youth have been facing massive brunt of unemployment during the last eight years rule by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).—INP
