Opposition PDP revealed that government engaged around eight thousand youth as NYC volunteers to protect them from stone pelting but once the normalcy returned these youth were left high and dry even they had left their education midway at the time of engagement.

“During 2010 summer unrest, the government tactfully engaged around eight thousand youth as NYC volunteers to prevent them from taking part in stone pelting but once there were signs of normalcy the NYC volunteers were left high and dry,” said Mehbooba Mufti, PDP president ahead of the question hour in legislative assembly on Wednesday.

Opposition Peoples Democratic Party staged protest and raised slogans on the alleged backdoor appointment of 43000 casual labourers /daily wagers in various departments.

Referring the two government replies on the same question pertaining to engagement of casual labourers in different government departments, Mehbooba Mufti the party president, asked the government to come clean on the issue.

Ahead of Question Hour, while refereeing to written replies to questions posed by Peerzada Mansoor Hussain and Choudhry Zulfikar Ali, Mehbooba said, “the government’s backdoor appointment policy stands exposed as the figures show that 33000 people out of 43000 already have been appointed as daily wagers and causal labourers in different departments”.

“If government reply to Mansoor Hussain’s question says no engagements have been made so far and the necessary operational modalities are being worked out, then how it has already appointed 33000 causal labourers and daily wagers in seven different departments as has been explained in government reply,” asked Mehbooba.

“The youth of the state were forced to take guns and resort to violence when in 1987, the elections were rigged. The same way youth are being pushed to wall by subverting the process of recruitment and the present government led by national Conference has once again reverted to backdoor and corrupt practices,” Mehbooba added.
