JAMMU: J&K National Panthers Party (JKNPP) on Saturday staged protest against the government for not showing its serious concern towards the poor and unemployed youths.
Led by Neeraj Gupta, Zonal President JKNPP, the party activists and members of Rehri and Khokha Workers Union took out a protest rally which started from Transport Nagar and culminated at the office complex of Divisional Commissioner, Jammu.
Gupta said that in the name of beautification and removal of encroachments, JDA has demolished Rehris and temporary Kokhas in Transport Nagar and its adjoining areas. Owners of Rehris and temporary Khokhas are mostly unemployed youths and totally dependent on these Rehri’s and Khokhas, he added.
Gupta asserted that if government can have rehabilitation policy for terrorists and stone pelters then why not these people can be rehabilitated?
“Due to his busy schedule, the Divisional Commissioner was not available for meeting. The next meeting with the Divisional Commissioner will be scheduled to be held on September 22, 2018,” Gupta said.
Gupta requested the Governor and Divisional Commissioner to give directions to JDA to allot these people a place for Rehari Zone or allot them kiosks at the Transport Nagar Yard Narwal, so that they can earn their bread and butter peacefully.
Among those who joined the protest include Sonu, Paramjit Singh, Balbir Kumar, Madan Lal, Vijay Kumar, Raj Kumar, Sohan Lal, Harvinder Singh, Dass Kumar, Sunil Kumar, Ramesh Kumar, Amar Chand, Puran Singh, Gopal Dass, Kuldeep Singh, Tarsem Hukam Chand, Sanju Kumar and Kewel Krishan.
