Srinagar, Nov 26 (UNI) Asking the youths to unitedly fight against the socio-economic policies of the successive government in Jammu and Kashmir, the CPI(M) today said the youths are feeling neglected during the past two decades of turmoil.
Neglect led the youths of the state to desperation, State Secretary of the CPI(M) Mohammad Yousuf Targami said at a party workers' convention here.
However, Mr Tarigami exhorted the youth to unitedly fight against the socio-economic policies, pursued by the powers that be, which had brought them to a position where their contribution towards the advancement of the society was being denied.
He urged the youth to channelise their energies towards a prosperous, enlightened, forward looking and an inculsive society and prepare themselves both physically and intellectually to play their role in the context of the modern globalising world, where distances were shortening.
Mr Tarigami said the number of lakhs of educated youths were unemployed, besides equal number of unskilled and semiskilled youth also wanted employment in the state.
He said there was no concrete policy in the state to address the uncertainties and agonies of unemployed youths.
The Secretary said massive investments in primary sectors like agriculture, horticulture and tourism could have created ample job avenues for youth but these sectors were ignored.
Mr Tarigami said private public partnership which was conceived to be launched in the state has not been given a serious view. Had it been encouraged more jobs would have been created for the educated youth.
He said macro and micro entrepreneurship could have been instrumental in containing the growing unemployment but due to non-seriousness of the government towards industrial promotion could not make it a success.
Mr Tarigami demanded regularisation of adhoc, contractual, daily rated and need based employees may also be brought into effect immediately.
