Farooq Abdullah shares harrowing ordeal of IIOJK youth

Srinagar, February 28 (KMS): National Conference President Farooq Abdullah has said that the youth bulge of Jammu and Kashmir is staring at shrinking employability, brewing insecurity and lost opportunities.

While addressing a public meeting in Srinagar, he said, “The incumbent administration is sitting on its hands and doing nothing to address the scathing and widespread unemployment in Jammu and Kashmir.”

He said that the people of J&K have suffered from a far deeper setback from pandemic than the people of Indian states; primarily because of the absence of any popular and representative government and secondarily because of the political and economic instability induced by the ill-conceived decisions of New Delhi from time to time.

On the Ukraine-Russia standoff, Farooq said that both the countries should return to the path of negotiations and predicted that India might face a far more difficult situation in the months ahead, given global uncertainty, than it might have expected after the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic begins to wane.

“Since the world today is far more globalised, the impact will apparently be more acute.
