Lambasting Omar Abdullah led coalition for ‘betraying’ every sections of the society in its five year tenure Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) patron Sunday observed that educated youth are the worst victims of the wrong policies being propagated by the youth Chief Minister.
Addressing a meeting of the prominent leaders of the youth and student wings of the party here, Mufti Mohammad Sayeed said that all promises made by the National Conference during the last Assembly elections remained only on papers. “Instead of fulfilling the commitment which the NC had made with the people during assembly elections, this government has been deceiving the people by making false statements”, he said and dubbed the much touted employment and welfare policy as “cruel joke” with the educated unemployed youth of the State to befool the youth.
Mufti said that the youth of the State deserved better than the faulty employment and welfare policy of the Government but during the last five years nothing concrete has been done. He said that employment policy of the state government has failed to yield any result. Assailing the government for betraying unemployed educated youth, Mufti regretted that during the last five years government has brazenly auctioned government jobs to deprive meritorious and deserving candidates and to adjust only undeserving candidates in lieu of money.
“Only noticeable achievement of Omar Abdullah government is auctioning government jobs in open market”, he said and pointed out that from MLCs to Class –IV employees everything is on sale under National Conference led coalition regime. While pointing towards recent exposure of scam in Board for Professional Entrance Examination (BOPEE), Mufti ruled that during the last five years sanctity of every institution from Assembly to BOPEE, has been systematically eroded by corrupt and illegal means. He said that it was result of the misdeeds of Omar Abdullah government that people have lost faith on institutions.
He availed this opportunity to remind the youth leader that during PDP led government recruitment process was institutionalized to ensure accountability and transparency. He mentioned that more than 80,000 Rehbar-e-Talim (ReT) teachers were appointed. Similarly more than 40000 Anganwari workers were also appointed but not even a single case of favourtism and nepotism was highlighted. “We institutionalized the recruitment process to ensure that only deserving and meritorious candidate should be recruited”, he said. Veteran leader and former Minister Sardar Rangil Singh while speaking on the occasion, said that this regime has ditched educated unemployed youth by encouraging backdoor appointments.
He exhorted the youth to oppose wrong policies of this regime. Waheed-ur-Rehman Para, in charge of the party’s state youth wing, in his address, said that educated youth in the State have become victims of the rampant corruption in the state. He pointed out that educated youth have been agitating in every corner of the state for employment but the government doesn’t have any policy for them. Youth Leader Jammu Sandeep Singh Wazir, Rajinder Manhas Vikramman Singh, Mahesh and other representatives of youth and PDSU also spoke on the occasion.
