Jammu: Several Kashmiri Pandit youths on Thursday held demonstration against the state government for "delay" in implementation of Prime Minister's employment package for youths of the displaced community.

"The employment package was announced long back in April, 2008 by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, but still it has not been fully implemented in the state," Youth All India Kashmiri Samaj (YAIKS) president R K Bhat told reporters here.

He said that of the 6,000 jobs announced under the package, only 1,438 posts have been filled so far.

"It clearly shows discrimination against the KP youths at the hands of State administration...since the last two decades after KPs displacement, we have not been given our employment share in the state and central governments," Bhat said.
