Lathi charge on unemployed youth in Murshidabad


It is 8:30 pm now. Just an hour ago, on the 4th of December, a major incident took place. The incident occurred in the Murshidabad district of West Bengal among the youth and the police.

In this country, India, the youth are receiving education at a minimal level. There is a mere passing mark so that everyone passes the tests. On top of that, there are quotas reserved for various groups like Scheduled Castes (SCs), Scheduled Tribes (STs), and Other Backward Classes (OBCs).

Children nowadays do not even have to study properly to pass an exam. They can attain the passing mark in the blink of an eye. This is the quality of education till the higher secondary level. After that, there are a lot of options.

Passing the higher secondary level means that one has the basic qualification to get a job, even a government one. So, the youth of our country either opt for higher studies like graduation, masters, or sit for various government exams.

But the government of our country is rigid. Its hands and feet are bound. After this pandemic of Covid- 19, the government has stopped declaring any exams. So, the youth of our country are sitting in their homes unemployed.

They are suffering from depression. The number of unemployed youths is increasing day by day everywhere. They are causing various riots and rallies in the country.

Even the police cannot stop them. One such incident happened in the Murshidabad district of West Bengal. The shameful sight of how the unemployment situation is becoming explosive in the country was seen here.

Thousands of youths had gathered at the Baharampur Stadium here. These youths were called to submit job application forms, but the crowd was such that even the police lost their senses.

To control such a large number of people, the police also resorted to mild lathi-charge, but the police lost their sweat in controlling them. This video was released on ANI.

In the video, it is clearly visible how the youths were collapsing one after the other. This is because they were eager to submit the form first. During this, many youths also fell due to pushing and lathi charges.

Many youths said that it is natural for the crowd to gather in this system of submitting the application form because there is no number nor any token for this. Everyone had been asked to wait for hours by standing in the bus line.

All the youths were forced to stand in line hungry and thirsty since morning because hours of time were wasted in submitting the form. If they left the line, it would be very difficult to join it again.
