JK Police recruitment sees unexpected response from youths

The state police has advertised for 400 posts of constables, for which recruitments rallies are being held across the state but with the ongoing resentment of people during last few week the officials had little hope of any recruitment from this district in particular, a senior officer involved in the recruitment process said.

But the response of locals on Sunday morning left them surprised. Right from early morning, people had lined up at the recruitment venue to get themselves registered for the rally, which will continue during the week.

For the 400 posts, 8,762 youths from Baramulla alone had registered for the rally, which comes to over 20 youths for one post.
Even more surprising was that some of them who were involved in stone pelting incidents were also spotted for recruitment into the very same force which they were targeting during last few week, the official claimed.

"The recurring protests in the Valley has had an adverse effect on the business opportunities of the locals. The youths are now looking at whatever jobs are being offered in government services. The job in police is a lucrative one for them and they do not mind shunning their hatred towards police when it comes to getting a job," the official said.
