Mockery with career of youth

Unemployment in our state like other states is growing every day as a result the youths are going from pillar to post to seek job in public or
private sector.
As a result the youths are disappointed, dejected and their disillusionment can be further aggravated if any organisation particularly associated with government assure the youth job, train them and complete all types of papers formality but later on decline to give them employment.
A case in point here is of career of 467 youths engaged by Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) under Solid Liquid Resource Management (SLRM).
But later on the officials of JMC declined to absorb them without citing any reasons.
These youths also underwent 15 days intensive training and went from door to door as per the instruction of JMC
What can be called but it is a sheer mockery with career of unemployed youths .
In this way, JMC has not only played with the career of youths but also made them fool, rubbing salt on their wounds.
The irate youths now decided to sat on protest/dharna under the banner of Swachh Jammu Mission Sangrash Committee at bridge of river Tawi near statue of Maharaja Hari Singh to register their protest and grab the attention of the government. This protest/dharna of these youths is justified and should be supported by all sensible citizens, political parties and civil society. The youths need support of all people including media fraternity to highlight grave injustice done to them.
The commissioner of Jammu Municipal Corporation is accountable and answerable to this mockery.
He has to reply under what circumstances he asked the applications from the youths for jobs but later on expressed his inability to recruit them.
JMC has to engage these youths otherwise the youths would lose faith in system of government organization.
The youths on the first day of protest received support from AAP party leaders and activists. But this is not enough, all other parties and right thinking people should support them.
We appeal all Jammu based political parties, religious organization and civil society to come forward in support of these hapless youths and pressurize JMC to give them employment.
In addition, present PDP-BJP coalition government led by Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti should also ask JMC reason for this blunder and issue directions for giving them job.
The youth are power of a nation. They are future of our country. If government or its local body continues to play with their career then there is fear of inviting volatile situation like Kashmir.
The youth have such a nature that they are easily agitated with a little bit issue and may prove destructive if their sentiments are hurt. Such type of action on the part of JMC can force them to take any extreme step. We hope that Jammu Municipal Corporation would not only give patient hearing to the problems of sulking youths engaged in SLRM scheme but also absorb them at the earliest possible.
