Shimla: Irritated over the ignorant attitude of successive state governments, the unemployed youth of the state have decided to strengthen their unity in order to pressurize the governments to solve their grievances. One such group, Srijit-Berozgar Union (HP), has decided not tot cast their votes in the Lok Sabha elections in order to show their resentment against political parties.
“If the employees can form a powerful pressure group, why can’t the jobless get together to lend voice to their demands,” said president of the Union, BC Sharma. He said that the SBU has specifically been floated at the time of the elections so that politicians can be pressurized to pay attention towards their joblessness. According to information unemployment allowance, and reducing the retirement age from 58 to 54 years are the main demands of the Union.
