Over 50 youth organizations from various states joined 'Yuva Halla bol' movement under one umbrella on Tuesday and called for holding a historical youth summit in national capital on January 27, protesting against all selection commissions, depleting job opportunities in the country and expose corruption in recruitments making government accountable.
Addressing to media at Delhi Press Club here, representatives of 50 youth groups such as Berozgar Sena, Yuva Shakti Sangathan, Youth for Swaraj and others demanded that all the vacancies in the government and public sector be immediately filled.
"We demand that government must create more jobs in all sectors as per the ideal requirement. It should also implement a model exam code to ensure that every recruitment process is completed within 9 months," said Yuva Halla Bol leader, Anupam.
"The government must also ensure fair selection by ending the present regime of paper leaks, delays and corruption in recruitment process. Today youths want job not jumlas," he said.
"Today, the youth is uncertain and feels insecure regarding the future. The employment opportunities are continuously decreasing. While 24 lakh posts lie vacant, the youth is frantically looking for jobs.
Even if more avenues for employment get generated, exams aren't conducted and when they are conducted, the papers get leaked," Anupam added.
Originated in March 2018 during the spontaneous nationwide youth upsurge against SSC scam, the #YuvaHallaBol initiative has evolved as a powerful platform for India's job-aspiring youth, aggrieved and agitated by the incompetence and insensitivity shown by recruitment bodies, he added.
"Around the same time powerful movements of youths emerged in different parts of the country, notably Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and other states, demanding a fair deal for the job aspiring young India. Many such agitated individuals, campaigns and youth organisations cutting across ideologies have now joined hands to fight against the demon of unemployment," Anupam said.
