Locals only be engaged in IIT, IIM, AIIMS; other central projects: Rana


NAGROTA Jan 10: National Conference Provincial President Mr Devender Singh Rana today sought absorption of locals in the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Indian Institute of Management (IIM), All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) besides engagement of the local work-force in the central projects currently under execution in J&K, keeping in view growing job crunch.
"Institutions like IIT, IIM, AIIMS and banks have immense potential to accommodate local unemployed youth and, therefore earnest steps are needed to be taken to ensure optimum absorption of cent percent local youth in these establishments for skilled and semi skilled categories and atleast fifty percent in other categories", the Provincial President said while addressing several roadside meetings with the residents of Panjgrian, Kattalbatal, Ban and Khalati in Nadore Panchayats.
Mrs Shameem Begum, who was felicitated over registering an impressive victory in the just concluded DDC elections from Dansal, also addressed the public meetings along with BDC Chairman Nagrota Ch Rehmat Ali.
Mr Rana said that unemployment has taken alarming proportions with educated unemployed besides skilled and unskilled workforce nurturing the feeling of let down in recent years. The situation has further worsened due to retrenchment in the private sector in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, adding to the joblessness. There has to be some mechanism in tackling this scenario, moreso because of the limited avenues of jobs due to lack of industries and corporate sectors. He said the government and public sector are major sources of employment and therefore some rationale has to be adopted.
Prominent among those present on the occasion included Sarpanch Thoru Ram, Sarpanch Kattalbatal Rekha Jamwal, Ex-Sarpanch Kulbhushan Singh, Ex-Sarpanch Joginder Lal, Hans Raj, Noor Mohd, Ashok Kumar, Rupali, Sadiq, Shoki, Satish and others.
