Apni Party organises one day district level convention for workers in Kathua 

Kathua, July 04, 2021: Apni Party Provincial President, Jammu, Manjit Singh has urged the Govt. to reserve skilled and unskilled jobs for locals in the industrial sector of Jammu and Kashmir jobs.

In his address one day district level convention of Apni Party workers in Kathua, near Shaheedi Chowk in Kathua, Manjit Singh, the Former Minister, said that they welcome the new industrial policy but there are apprehensions among the locals that outsiders will get the job share in the industrial sector.

“It is the responsibility of the Govt. to reserve jobs or give preference to the local youth in both skilled and unskilled works in the industrial sector,” he said.

He said that the industrial sector has a potential to generate jobs and the unemployed educated youth can be adjusted in the growing sector.

He also urged the party workers to prepare for assembly elections and work among the people to gain their confidence. “Apni Party will fulfill its promises made with the people once it comes to power in J&K. The Party is unlike others who mislead with false and hollow slogans for vote bank. We promise what is achievable without giving emotional slogans or deviating the people,” he said.

He said that under the leadership of Syed Mohammed Altaf Bukhari, the Party will contest the elections and fulfill the promises made with the people.

He said that the Party will never compromise with the basic issues of the people and struggle will continue until they are fulfilled. He reiterated demand for restoration of Statehood to J&K.

He further said that the assembly election should not be delayed further as it has already created anger among the people.

“People are not satisfied with the administration because of the irresponsible attitude of the officials while dealing with the public. As there is no elected Govt in J&K, the officials have failed to perform and hence, it has given rise to anger among the people and unemployed especially,” said Manjit Singh.

He said that the price of the essential commodities has touched sky and there is no relief to the people.

“The absence of an elected Govt. will further aggravate the situation. People are also against the Union Territory status of J&K. The Govt should understand the people of the erstwhile state want Statehood back. This time, both the regions are united to get back the Statehood which was taken away from J&K on August 5, 2021,” said Manjit Singh.

District President, Kathua, and Ex-MLA Prem Lal, who organised the one-day convention of workers in Kathua also spoke on the occasion and said that the tourism sector in J&K has been hit and Kathua has been neglected in this regard by the concerned department.

He said that the covid situation has affected business and other commercial activities in the district and the unemployment has increased.

“The scope of work in the industrial sector has reduced for the locals, and many of the units have employed non-local skilled and unskilled people in their factories,” he said.

He also highlighted various other local issues being faced by the people. The Former Minister, Manjit Singh who was accompanied by Provincial Secretary, Dr Rohit Gupta, Apni Trade Union, President, Ajaz Kazmi, SC State Coordinator Bodh Raj Bhagat, Ex-MLA Faqir Nath, also spoke on the occasion.
