Srinagar: Former chief minister Omar Abdullah Saturday said the youth of the state had been left in lurch by a nepotistic and anti-youth PDP-BJP coalition government.
Hard-working, meritorious and qualified youth of the state are being pushed against the wall because of open political patronage to nepotism and “an unprecedented chaos in recruitment, competitive examinations and at service commissions, Omar,” the working president of opposition National Conference (NC), said here.
Omar was addressing a one-day meet of youth NC provincial body at the party headquarters, Nawa-e-Subha, here.
Omar said the state has highly qualified and talented youth who have given their sweat and blood to be equipped with great academic credentials, “but this government seems hell-bent to alienate them after robbing them of their merit and rights,” he said. PTI
