The agitation by unemployed youth in Uttarakhand

Unemployed youth in Uttarakhand in India are nowadays agitating over leakage of the lekhpal exam paper, and are demanding a CBI enquiry, and release of those arrested in the agitation…/breaking-news-dehradun-news

There has been a police lathi charge on the agitating students

But even if there had been no leak, how many candidates would have been selected and appointed ? Hardly 1 in 1000, since there are very few jobs compared to the applicants.

There is always a huge rush of youth whenever and wherever an army recruitment takes place.…/story…/arti…/30036369.cms

So it is evident that youth prefer a dangerous job, like that in the army, to the hell of unemployment.

Hence while I sympathise with the agitators, I also want to say that our people, particularly our youth, must now seriously start thinking of how to launch a mighty, united people’s struggle, which will culminate in a revolution, and creating a political and social order under which there is rapid industrialisation and modernisation, so that everyone gets a job with good income, nutritious food, proper healthcare and good education, etc, and destruction of our big curses like unemployment, caste and communalism.

Jobs are created on a large scale when there is rapid industrialisation, but presently the Indian economy is stagnant, or even in recession..

So to provide jobs for our youth we have to create a political and social order in which there is rapid industrialisation and modernisation. That must be our national goal.
