New Delhi, Nov 2 (IANS) Alleging massive corruption in the procedure for government jobs, Yuva-HallaBol on Friday organised ‘youth panchayats’ across the country on the rising unemployment in the country.
In the panchayats, the youth representatives deliberated on the way forward and decided to organise Yuva-HallaBol rallies in more cities.
The Yuva-Hallabol is a nationwide youth movement against corruption and lack of job opportunities.
“Yuva-Hallabol has in the past protested against SSC (Staff Selection Commission) scam and also organised a rally at Parliament Street. Noted activist and Supreme Court lawyer Prashant Bhushan is now handling the SSC case in the court,” said Yuva-HallaBol leader Anupam.
He said youth panchayats were organized in various cities today to discuss the roadmap for the nationwide movement against unemployment. The cities included Delhi, Kolkata, Patna, Jaipur, Bhopal, Allahabad, Rewari, Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune.
“Youngsters have a deep sense of insecurity for their future, which casts a shadow on the country’s future. The anger among the youth is beacuse of the failure of the government to even acknowledge the problem,” he said.
He said there are over 24 lakh sanctioned but vacant posts in various government departments. Instead of filling these positions, the government has ordered to scrap 4 lakh such posts, he added.
