State unit of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) has criticized the government for its failure to address the problems being faced by the youth in Jammu and Kashmir.
Addressing the state working committee meeting in Jammu on Sunday, which was chaired by Bharatiya janata party (BJP) leader and former IGP (retd) Farooq Khan, BJYM state President Ravinder Raina said the Congress and the National Conference government had thoroughly ignored the youth who are considered the future of the country and the youth were being forcefully pushed towards darkness.
He said that lack of youth oriented policies and subsequent lack of attention towards them had led to a feeling of disenchantment among the youth. Criticizing the government over its failure to address to the woes of the youth, Raina said that rising unemployment had led to a feeling of disillusionment among the youth, which was driving them on the brink of breakdown as no step had been taken by the government in promoting either government related jobs or self employment.
Addressing the meeting Khan said spirit of the youth needed to be utilised in a proper way so that their energy was channelised but unfortunately the state government had no time for the betterment of youth. He said on one hand the state government was patronising the anti-nationals by adopting surrender and rehabilitation policy and on the other hand nationalist youth of the state was ignored deliberately. Khan said the time had come for them to gear themselves up and bring in change, a change for the welfare and promotion of youth and youth policies.
