Day 1: Around 5000 people marched along with RS Bali in the Kangra & Chamba districts
More than 4000 people demonstrated against unemployment today by flooding the streets of the Kangra district in Nagrota, Dharamshala, Kangra, Shahpur, and Kotla.
Shree RS Bali Ji, the secretary of the AICC and the organiser of the Rozgar Sangharsh Yatra, spoke out against the growing unemployment rate.
He claimed that Himachal Pradesh is one of the top 3 states with the highest unemployment rate. The unemployment rate in the state is likewise significantly higher than the 8.1% national average. During the first wave of Covid, the unemployment rate was 26% in Himachal. In our state, 8.82 lakh young people are without jobs, but this number is likely considerably higher because the rural population is undercounted. By the end of this government’s term, the state will owe Rs. 85,000 crores. rising rates of unemployment, soaring gasoline and commodity costs. The average man’s life has become wretched.
RS Baliji said that the BJP government has been avoiding the two primary problems—unemployment and inflation—while speaking to the media in Dharamshala. He added that the BJP government had lied to the people of Himachal and had misled them. He said that local residents no longer have a voice in decision-making. The only thing the BJP is doing is jumlas.
Congress, according to HPYC President Nigam Bhandari, has always supported the nation’s young. Even in 2012, late Shree G.S. Baliji, the transport minister at the time, organised a sizable rozgar sangharsh yatra.
Day 2: 4-day yatra led by AICC Secretary received massive support in Kangra & Chamba districts
On the second day of the Rozgar Sangharsh Yatra, protesters marched through the streets of the district’s Nurpur, Indora, and Jawali constituencies.
Demonstrators urged the present BJP government to avoid tampering with the next generation’s future.
If Congress wins the state of Himachal, according to RS Bali, the AICC Secretary and organiser of the Rozgar Sangharsh Yatra, they would create 5 lakh employment. He also slammed the BJP government, accusing it of betraying the people and of crushing the aspirations and ambitions of millions of students by enacting anti-student laws like Agniveer. Deplorable describes the educational system. This administration simply cares about raising revenue; by demonetisation and now taxing vasooli, they have already robbed the nation.
RS Bali and Nurpur ex-MLA Ajay Mahajan, Indora ex-MLA Karan Singh Pathania, ex-Minister Sudheer Sharma, and young leaders like Amit Pathania, Nigam Bhandari, Vineet Kamboj, Shibi Chauhan, and Ajaz Chaudhary are among the leaders marching beside them.
