Jammu, Oct 15 In a move of its own kind, the Panthers Party activists led by Harsh Dev Singh, Chairman-JKNPP and Yashpaul Kundal State President Young Panthers today set ablaze the ‘monster’ of raging inflation and soaring unemployment on the eve of Dusshera at press Club Jammu. The activists chanted ‘ Jai Sree Ram, Jai Sree Ram’, ‘Mehangaai ka daanav bhasam ho’, ‘Berozgaari ka rakshas bhasam ho’, ‘Daman aur Atank ke daanav ka ant ho’ to invoke deities to rescue people from the sky rocketing prices of fuel and essential commodities besides menace of unemployment prevalent in the country and J&K in particular. They also prayed for the victory of good over evil. Speaking on the occasion, Singh divulged that the monster of inflation has made the life of common man miserable. “The public is feeling the heat and burden of unprecedented price rise of petrol crossing over Rs.100/- per litre and diesel nearly touching Rs.100/- per litre mark. The skyrocketing prices of staple vegetables, pulses, edible oil and other essential commodities had posed the most menacing threat to the pockets of the common man. LPG price with Rs.1000/- per cylinder has adversely impacted the kitchen chores in every household. Overall, the poor and marginalized sections have been most prejudicially affected due to ever declining purchasing power of their meager stagnant earnings. The govt. has failed to control inflationary tendencies and was raking up controversial issues only to divert the attention of the people” said Singh adding that in such circumstances, the divine intervention was the only way out. Expressing concern over the deprivation and humiliation of youth in J&K, Singh said the monster of unemployment soared and continued to multiply many fold in past seven years of Saffron rule. “The current report of CMIE figuring unemployment rate of 21.6 % in J&K as worst among all States/UTs in India is heart wrenching. The J&K govt has been treating the youth like ‘expendables’ with thousands of Daily Wagers, Need based workers and Casual labourers working in various departments including PDD, PWD, PHE, R&B, I&FC, Health & Medical Education.
