He said that there is frustration among the unemployed youth in J&K which needs to be addressed by the Govt without further delay.
"Delaying assembly elections in J&K will further add to the feeling of alienation especially among the unemployed youth," said the Provincial President, Jammu, Manjit Singh.
He said that "The industrial sector is one of the main sources of providing employment to the youth. It is therefore important to engage local youth and reserve jobs for them in the industrial sector in both skilled and unskilled."

He said that the issue of aspirants of BSF should also be looked into on humanitarian grounds by the authorities.
"The issue of youth engaged in the Sports Department should be resolved at the earliest and similarly, the unpaid VDCs should be paid for their work adequately by the Government," he said.
