State Times NewsSRINAGAR: More than a year after the special status of Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 was revoked, the government is yet to create even a single job. Instead it has withdrawn more than 1000 posts that were advertised under SRO 202 during the past two years. This was stated by Mohammad Younis Tarigami, communist party of India (Marxist) in a statement issued on Wednesday.The government’s decision, he said, is unfortunate as instead of providing employment, it is even snatching the limited opportunities. The government should revoke its decision as soon as possible, he demanded.On 28 August 2019, when Kashmir was under lockdown after the abrogation of Article 370, then governor Satya Pal Malik announced that 50,000 jobs would be made available for the youth in next three months.Similarly, in March, the government in the Parliament announced that it proposes to fill up 50,000 vacant posts in J&K.And when the government decided to issue domicile certificates in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic, it claimed that the haste was because it was planning to hold a massive recruitment drive, Tarigami said.However, he said, all these promises have proved a hoax and the unemployed youth in Jammu and Kashmir continue to suffer immensely. They feel betrayed and annoyed by the repeated false promises, he added.Those who were already earning their livelihood were deprived of it, he said adding that thousands of casual labourers, need-based daily-wagers, scheme workers and others were without wages for the last more than a year.
