National Conference Provincial President Devender Singh Rana on Sunday said that keeping in view the burgeoning unemployment problem in the State, the state subject of Jammu and Kashmir should get adequate opening in the central government departments.
Addressing a gathering of workers he said that state subjects of Jammu and Kashmir should get adequate openings in the central government departments, banks, railways, para-military and defence forces and a specified quota needs to be allocated for educated unemployed besides skilled and unskilled work-force.
Rana said this is imperative in view of limited opportunities in the State government departments and almost zero corporate sector due to lack of industries and big business houses.
The unemployment, he said, has sapped the morale and confidence of the youth, who are unable to support their families and contribute in nation building.
“As a special dispensation, the Centre should take a policy decision with regard to reservation in central jobs together with relaxation in age in respect of the candidates of Jammu and Kashmir”, he said, adding that the measure will go a long way in offsetting the unemployment problem in the State.
He said that all religions of the world taught peace, love, tolerance and respect for humanity.
