Hyderabad: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will hold a ‘Million March’ on November 12 to protest against lakhs of youth who are jobless in the state, said BJP General Secretary, G. Premender Reddy.
Addressing a press conference in the city on Monday, he stated that the BJP will stand for the unemployed youth and ensure their problems are solved. “A Million March will be taken out in the city to bring pressure on the Government to provide jobs for youth,” Reddy added.
BJP MLA Raja Singh who also addressed the press conference said that the youth sacrificed their lives to achieve Telangana but after coming to power the TRS betrayed them by going back on their promises of providing job opportunities. “As a result, youth are attempting suicide,” he said.
