Latest figures expose ‘champions’ of Jammu cause
Of 22 districts, Jammu tops list of jobless
4/21/2019 10:58:18 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Apr 21: Official figures reveal that the state still has more than 88 thousand registered jobless youth with Jammu topping the list in unemployment.
As pert the government data, out of the 22 districts of Jammu and Kashmir state, Jammu district has the highest number of jobless youth as out of 88 thousand unemployed people, more than 11 thousand are from Jammu district alone. Similarly, when two divisions of Jammu and Kashmir are compared, Jammu division has 45821 jobless people while as the number in Kashmir division is 42219.
The details have once again proved how the claims of Jammu's betterment have fallen flat and those who beat the trumpet of representing Jammu's aspirations have miserably failed to make any mark. The documents in possession of the Early Times newspaper have also pricked the balloon of equitable growth and development as against Srinagar's 5985 jobless youth, the number is double in Jammu district- 11072.
Pertinently, during 2014 canvassing, the political groups in Jammu promised massive employment in the region if voted to power. Now, when five years have completed and latest details of unemployment have come to fore, there is ample proof that the previous regime has failed to address the menace with people at the receiving end and Jammu continues to become victim discrimination. "The figures have revealed that not much has changed in the past regime and the unemployment is drastically going up. These facts are mocking at the helmsmen who have to answer to people of Jammu about why they failed so miserably in the past five years," says an official.
Meanwhile, Early Times had last year reported that there no less than 11,807 doctors, engineers and post- graduates from Jammu region without a job while as the number of jobless youth with similar degrees is much less in Srinagar. The figures at that time too had bellied the claims of equitable development and equal opportunities to the youth of the state.
Data had revealed that , there are 60 doctors with MBBS degrees jobless in Jammu while the number of unemployed engineers is 466. There are more than 100 diploma holders jobless in Jammu while the number of post graduates who were denied the employment opportunities is 610. Furthermore, at present, there are 1642 graduates in Jammu region without any job while as those in category of 'others' are 7916 in number.
The figures till 2014 were even more dreadful as compared to present. Till December 2014, there were 756 MBBS doctors in Jammu without any job. The number of engineers was 647. Diploma holders were 3024 in number while as those jobless youth in Jammu having post graduation were 1853. The number of graduates was 6383 and those in the category of others were '13448'.
