Advocate Prashant Bhushan, who is backing the campaign, said the group has the “potential to become a movement bigger than the Lokpal”.

“There is a lot of discontent among the unemployed youngsters. The youth movement has the potential to convert this dejection into hope.” said retired IPS officer Yashovardhan Azad.

Addressing a press conference here, Sanyukt Yuva Morcha leader Anupam said Yuva Mahapanchayats will be organised across the country before a national convention to be held in the national capital in June.

“Unemployment has become a matter of life and death for the youth. Suicide cases are rising constantly. The youth of our country needs assurance from the government that their future is not gambled away. This assurance can come from ‘Bharat Rozgaar Sanhita (Bharosa)’. This requires a united fight,” Anupam said.
