Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee chief Partap Singh Bajwa on Sunday met a deputation of the Punjab Unemployed Veterinary Pharmacists' Association and expressed shock over suicide committed by an unemployed veterinary pharmacist, who was on the forefront to fight for justice for all of his colleagues.
Bajwa, while extending full support to the cause of unemployed veterinary pharmacists, said the sacrifice made by Jaswinder Singh, a resident of Bathinda, would not go waste. He said he was shocked to know the plight of unemployed pharmacists. There are many other qualified professionals in Punjab who were facing unemployment.
"The SAD-BJP government had ruined the life of educated youth. There are plenty of colleges but fewer jobs. It was ironical that neither chief minister Parkash Singh Badal nor Bathinda MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal took notice of the suicide by an unemployed youth and none of them visited the family of deceased," Bajwa added.
Unemployed veterinary pharmacists have been agitating for long but the SAD-BJP government has not listened to their demands. PPCC president demanded to compensate family of Jaswinder Singh on the pattern of Sarabjit Singh the Indian prisoner killed in Pakistan and Punjab Police ASI's killed by miscreants in the recent past. He demanded a compensation of Rs 25 lakh and a job for the wife of deceased pharmacist.
