Port Blair, Aug 24 (UNI) The Island Protection Forum's (IPF) plan to protest, demanding job security for the unemployed youths of Andaman and Nicobar today suffered a set back when few allied organizations showed some reservation on the issue.

'' We were demanding compulsory re-introduction of domicile condition for recruitment in Andaman and Nicobar to prevent outsiders in the local administration, IPF president Mr Mustafa told UNI.

IPF had called a crucial joint meeting at Port Blair, inviting all the prominent organsations of these islands for supporting August 30 protest.

But some organizations reportedly sought for more time to consult their members and expressed reservation to organise protest on such a short notice.

The forum had also been demanding to fill up the vacant seats for various departments, as the prime minister has assured during his visit to Andaman in 2005.

During the meeting, IPF also demanded to continue the present pattern of seat allotment by the local administration for Andaman students.
