Srinagar: The opposition National Conference today said the youth of Kashmir is getting alienated due to the atmosphere of “despondency” and “doom” in the absence of constructive and reconciliatory politics.
NC’s working president Omar Abdullah made the remarks at a meeting of party’s provincial committee here.
“The current atmosphere of despondency, doom and anxiety in the valley is alienating the youth in the absence of constructive and reconciliatory politics,”
Omar alleged that governance instability, policy inconsistency and the deteriorating law and order situation in the state were all reminders of how the slogan of change raised by the ruling PDP-BJP alliance had proven to be a hoax.
“The ensuing state of instability and chaos in Jammu and Kashmir is a matter of serious concern and should be taken seriously as the consequences of indifference and callousness would be disastrous,” he added.
Omar said the brazen patronage to nepotism, corruption and back door entries was an assault on the dignity of hardworking and educated youth who have been rendered hopeless and cynical as the kith and kin of leaders of the ruling dispensation were being given plump government jobs through the proverbial back door.
