Army Recruitment Rally Rush An Eye-Opener, Says Comrade Tarigami

KL Report


Terming the Army’s recruitment rally in which around 20,000 youth appeared for filling up of 55 posts an eye opener for the present dispensation in Jammu and Kashmir, CPI (M) State Secretary Mohammad Yousuf Tarigami on Friday observed that the unemployment in the state has assumed an alarming trend and youth are feeling distressed and disillusioned in absence of ample job opportunities.

In a statement issued here, Tarigami said that the present dispensation and the central government seem to have been focusing on political rhetoric and gimmickry rather than concentrating on solutions to the vexed issues confronting the people especially the youth of J&K.

The CPI (M) leader observed that the burning issues confronting people of J&K particularly the unemployed youth cannot be postponed till the political part of the Kashmir problem is addressed.
He said that one of the burning issues, which is adding to the atmosphere of uncertainty and alienation, is the alarming rate of unemployment in the state. “It is not a matter of serious concern only but we believe that any further delay in addressing this smoldering issue will make this problem worse to handle,” he said.

While maintaining that unemployment in the State has assumed an alarming trend, the CPI (M) leader deplored the government’s inaction and lack of vision for tackling the problem adding that schemes bereft of pro youth incentives for self-employment have failed to motivate the youth to set up their own ventures so far.

Urging upon both Union and State government to devise comprehensive youth oriented policies with long lasting employment schemes, Tarigami advocated for formation of a state youth commission which can frame a special and result oriented projects and schemes for the harmonious development of the youth in J&K.
