KOHIMA — The Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) on Wednesday reminded the five guarantees of the Congress party for the Indian youth if it comes to power in the upcoming Lok Sabha election.

Addressing a press conference at the Congress Bhavan Kohima, Meshenlo Kath, Co-Chairman of Public Grievance Department, NPCC, said the five guarantees will focus mainly on uplifting of the nation’s youth.

These included: Bharti bharosa (recruitment trust), pehli naukri pakki (first job assured), paper leak se mukti (freedom from paper leaks), social security in the GIG economy, and yuva roshni.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi sensed the unemployment problem faced by the Indian youth during his two yatras and had came up with the five guarantees, Kath said.

The party has guaranteed a ‘bharti bharosa’ to the youth of the nation by promising to fill 30 lakh vacant central government jobs.

Speaking from the context of Nagaland, Kath said that there are so many vacancies in the state government. As per the RTI reports in three state departments, there are around 100 vacancies. Taking into account the 70 plus government departments in the state, how many more vacancies will be there? he asked.

Under pehli naukri pakki, the educated youth, irrespective of any field or streams, are guaranteed apprenticeship, either with government or private sectors, for one year with a stipend of INR 1 lakh, he said, adding that the third guarantee ‘paper leak se mukti’ is to check the paper leaks across the country by implemented a strict law.

The fourth guarantee, social security in gig economy, is about enhancing the working conditions and social security for gig workers, as there are no special facility given by the government, while the fifth one — yuva roshni – promises to create an INR 5000 crore national fund for the youths who wish to take up entrepreneurship, to help them start their businesses, he elaborated.

Kath, who contested in the last state assembly election from Kohima Town AC on Congress ticket, said that the present government is not very concern about the country and nobody, including the mainstream media dares to ask question.

Claiming that the BJP government is trying to remove secularism from the preamble (of Indian constitution), he urged the people to think over it and act.

He added that people with money win election and that is the reason why Congress could not win a single seat (in Nagaland) for years.

The NPCC is cultivating honest politics instead of money power and if Naga youth are wise enough, now is the time to change otherwise it will be too late, he stated.
