Scores of youth, who have received training for becoming tourist facilitators in 2016, held a protest demonstration at press enclave here demanding jobs.

“We had done our training under a centre government scheme for tourist facilitators in 2016. At that time, we were promised that we will be provided jobs. Infact a top official of the state announced fast track recruitment for us. But unfortunately it is 2019, and our issue is still pending,” said Younis wani, who was leading the delegation of the tourist facilitators trainees.

Another member of the delegation said that 1207 aspirants were trained under the tourist facilitators’ scheme at IHM, Rajbagh. “We were promised that instant jobs will be provided after the completion of the training. Our files are complete with all the requirements but despite that nothings is being done,” he said.

They appealed the Governor and his advisors to look into the matter to “save the future” of these trained facilitators.
