JAMMU: Accusing the BJP govt. of having betrayed the trust of the people of J&K, Chairman-JKNPP & former Minister Harsh Dev Singh today described the newly enacted Domicile Law as an obnoxious piece of super-imposed legislation. By throwing open the J&K employment avenues, except part of Class-IV jobs, to the outside States, the BJP led govt. had caused the greatest disappointment to the educated unemployed, said Singh. This is the greatest dis-service to the youth of J&K, In fact, it is a dacoity of the rights of the J&K youth said Singh adding that the govt. move would be opposed tooth and nail. He was addressing the media persons today during the course of a protest Dharna lodged by him in Jammu today seeking revocation of Domicile Law.
Reminding the BJP of the tall promises made by its leaders post Article 370 abrogation of protecting the rights of educated unemployed youth of J&K, Singh regretted that the actual delivery had been in inverse proportion to the articulation of the said promises. New appointment had been altogether stopped after August 5, 2019. And now, the youth of J&K had been robbed of their existing share in employment by throwing open the jobs in the new UT to outsiders, lamented Singh. “If the govt. had to issue such an obnoxious order, then why did it wait for around eight months? And why did it suspend the entire recruitment process in the new UT for so long?” questioned Singh.
Harsh Dev said that he sat on protest Dharna alone as he did not want any assembly of persons due to the Corona pandemic.
