THE INDIAN Apprentice Federation of Unemployed Youth took out a procession and staged dharna at the district magistrate’s office demanding to accommodate around 15,000 unemployed apprentices at 36,000 posts lying vacant in different departments. They organised a meeting and handed over a memorandum to the district magistrate in this regard.

Expressing his views on this occasion, State president of the federation Brijendra Pratap Singh and secretary Shachindra Mani Pandey accused the State government of ignoring them and hatching a conspiracy to surrender the posts to benefit the corporate sector.

Singh said in 1995 the Supreme Court has given its verdict in favour of the unemployed apprentices and directed the State government to accommodate them but successive governments did not take any initiative in this direction. He said the federation had decided to organise a demonstration on January 30 in Lucknow.

Responding to a question, he said the State government was using force to disperse the youths gathered to demand the job. He demanded that the district magistrate should take the initiative to ensure the appointment of apprentices at daily wages in different corporations and sugar mills.
