Employment for All or 20,000 PKR as Unemployment Allowance
Speakers addressed in conference that It is the primary responsibility of the State to provide reasonable employment to the youth, but this parished economic system and government is unable to provide employment to millions of Pakistani youth, even other basic needs i.e. health, pure water, and free education are out of the reach of majority masses. Inflation is rising with the capital’s deepening crisis. Like previous government, the current government is following the same reactionary practices by implementing the policies of privatization, that further increases the unemployment and deprives the masses from the basic necessities.
The present fraud government has betrayed the youth and masses, they promised one crore jobs and 50 million houses in the election campaign but on the contrary, the houses were smashed and millions of the jobs have been lost. These are the mere symptoms of capitalist crisis which has left no capacity to be reformed. On this occasion, the youth demanded employment or at least twenty thousand rupees as unemployment allowance, similarly demanded free education and restoration of students’ union. Speakers urged to revolutionize and mobilize youth to fight for their rights.
After the conference, a protest rally was carried from Dadu Press Club to Cinema Chowk, the slogans against unemployment, inflation and privatization were rised.
