JAIPUR: Unemployed youth from across Rajasthan are set to host a protest rally on Wednesday in the Triveni Nagar area of Jaipur, to discuss pressing issues like unemployment, paper leaks, and employment opportunities in the state.

Politicians from both the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress are expected to attend this event, to show solidarity with unemployed youths.

Upen Yadav, the State President of the Rajasthan Unemployed Integrated Federation, stated that the conference will address both current and future recruitment examinations.

The attendees will call upon the central and state leaders to prioritise Rajasthan’s youth in state recruitment exams to ensure their rights are not violated. The meeting will also serve as a platform for devising strategies to address youth issues.

  6. Immediate fulfilment of budget announcement demands and movement agreements.
  7. Reversal of cases registered against unemployed youth and establishment of a youth unemployment board.
  8. Fixing of a minimum percentage in CET and addition of 4500 posts to REET Level-2.
  9. Accountability for those who set incorrect recruitment exam questions, with stern legal and financial penalties.
  10. Implementation of a law by the state and central government for life imprisonment in cases of recruitment exam paper leaks, and immediate enforcement of the Rajpasa or Rasuka law.
