Jammu: Alleging delay in implementation
of the Prime Ministers Employment package, a group of Kashmiri
Pandit youths on Sunday left for Kashmir to stage
demonstration in front of Chief Minister Omar Abdullah`s
residence in Srinagar.

"We will hold protest rally in front of CM`s residence
and gherao it in protest against failure and delay tactics in
implementation of PM`s Employment package for Kashmiri Pandit
youths", Youth All India Kashmiri Samaj (YAIKS) President R K
Bhat told a news agency.

The aim of rally is to lay stress on the CM to decide
the future of Kashmiri youths, he said.

"Formal orders vis-a-vis implementation of PM`s
special package has been kept in abeyance without any
potential reason and logic," he alleged.

Bhat alleged that in the current Assembly session, no
elected representative in the state legislature raised a
question or voice in their favour because they gave no
priority to anyone.

YAIKS has decided to directly approach the Chief
Minister to seek answer to why they have been ignored and not
give their due rights, Bhat added.

YAIKS demanded that keeping in view present situation
in Kashmir valley, the government should utilize their
services in the remaining parts of the state till normalcy may
be restored.

He further demanded that the remaining 3000 jobs out
of the total 6000 jobs under the PM`s package should be
provided to them either with seven years of age relaxation or
one-time compensation of Rs 25 lakh per youth.
