PATIALA: Unemployed youths protesting outside Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh’s residence in Patiala were brutally beaten by the police on Sunday. AAP MLA from Barnala and Youth Wing president Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer on Monday met the injured and said that after ‘annadatas’ of the country, the beating of the nation’s builder is highly reprehensible. Speaking on the occasion, Hayer said that Captain Amarinder Singh who had made big promises to the youth before the elections was now raining batons on the youth demanding their rights. He said that the youth were roaming unemployed, but Captain Amarinder Singh was sitting comfortably in his farmhouse and living a peaceful life.
Lashing out at the Captain government over the suicide attempt by an unemployed youth out of police brutality, Hayer said that in the last four and half years Captain Amarinder Singh had not fulfilled a single promise in the state and was always running away from his promises. He further said that the youth had enthusiastically handed over the state to Captain Amarinder Singh, hoping that he would take them by the arm and give them employment but now Captain Amarinder Singh was reneging on his promises.
Hayer said that the current state of unemployment in Punjab was that the government was failing to provide employment to the unemployed despite charging crores of rupees in the name of new recruitments. The AAP leader said that the posts in the government departments of Punjab were being abolished due to which the youth were facing more risk of unemployment. He said that in the 2022 elections, the youth of Punjab would take stock of the false promises made by Captain Amarinder Singh and will give him a befitting reply.
