The burning issue however remains to be that of unemployment. Unfortunately the remuneration which was given to unemployed youth was also discontinued by the former BJP-PDP government. Today the number of unemployed youth in our state is at all time high. The younger generations are feeling disenchanted and dejected; the absence of a popular elected government is taking its toll on the administration of the state. The need of the hour calls for an elected government which could further the cause of development and peace building in the state,” she said adding, “The new government under the leadership of Omar Sahib will make earnest efforts towards ensuring safe spaces for youth to pursue their vocations. The agenda of party is explicitly clear on giving women their due share at every strata of administrative level. We will ensure women’s reservation, and dole out other gender neutral policies for the greater women emancipation.” (KNS)
