The Opposition National Conference has asked Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti to explain how the son of PDP Vice-President as well as the nephew of PDP General Secretary figured in the list of selected Executive Officers for the J&K Khadi and Village Industries Board. 

In a statement, NC state spokesperson Junaid Azim Mattu said the government has taken the patience of unemployed youth for granted and should not try to portray this brazen nepotism as a miraculous coincidence. 

“PDP’s tall rhetoric has fallen flat on its face and this recent list of the J&K KVIB is another proof of PDP’s insidious and nepotistic style of politics. The list includes not only the son of PDP Vice President figures in the list with roll number 703982 issued by J&K KVIB and PDP General Secretary's nephew, figures at serial number 2 at the waiting list with roll number 101830. Most of the people figuring in the final list issued by J&K KVIB are either children of close associates of PDP leaders or have direct patronage from the powers that be," the NC state spokesperson said. 

Demanding an immediate independent probe into the list issued by the J&K KVIB, the NC state spokesperson said this was a cruel joke with the youth of the State who are reeling under unprecedented unemployment and hopelessness while children of PDP leaders are being adjusted in government departments and boards. 

“Is this why the State government has placed its leaders as V-Cs of these boards? So that they could adjust their children in these institutions? What is the message you are sending out to our youth? Our youth stands dejected, isolated and alienated not only due to the political sellout of the PDP to come to power but also due to this rampant patronage to nepotism. Rather than investing all her time in photo-ops and theatrics, the Chief Minister should introspect and realize she is pushing the youth against the wall and testing their patience”, Mattu said in the statement.
