STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Former minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla on Sunday claimed that after formation of BJP Government, the unemployed Jammu youth continue to bear brunt of the most discriminatory agenda of their rule. The betrayal of BJP with Jammu people in general and youth in particular has pushed youth to the edge, he added. Addressing gathering of youth in Gandhi Nagar Constituency, Bhalla alleged that BJP leadership betrayed educated unemployed youth of Jammu region. He said that BJP has always exploited sentiments of youth by making false promises every time particularly during elections but practically did nothing on ground level. BJP’s real face stood exposed during past five years, he said. Criticising employment policy, Bhalla expressed deep concern over increasing unemployment rate under BJP Government, as it is totally against the interests of educated unemployed youth from across the nation. “This policy leads to harassment and ultimately exploitation of educated youth and serves no propose. As unemployed youth are already suffering a lot due to disturbance in J&K for more than two decades, it is a mockery with youth to engage them temporarily for seven years both in Gazetted and Non-Gazetted cadre,” he added. Congress leader further said the youth are feeling cheated as promises made to them were either broken or unapologetically abandoned. Bhalla said that it is very unfortunate that regularisation of daily-wagers/causal labours working in various departments is still pending despite a lot of hue and cry by employees associations and political parties. He also supported demands of teachers engaged on contractual basis, lecturers and daily wagers working in different departments. Bhalla said that youth of J&K has been left in lurch by a nepotistic and anti-youth BJP government. He urged the Lt Governor to take necessary measures to fill 50,000 posts in Jammu and Kashmir, as announced by the then Governor Satya Pal Malik, so that unemployment crisis can be resolved to some extent in J&K.
