Young IAS aspirants set to come face to face with stone pelting brigade
JAMMU: For almost a month now, thousands of youth are converging on the streets of Kashmir, pelting stones, indulging in acts of violence by way of torching public property, damaging government installations and targeting security camps.
On the other hand, though not equal but a significant number of young aspirants, keenly waiting to join Indian Administrative services, are studying with great difficulty in the wake of ongoing unrest across the valley.
In the absence of free movement these students have suffered badly. Due to complete suspension of internet services, a sizeable population is deprived of current affairs and other teaching aids.
But on Sunday, both the groups will come face to face with each other for the first time.
Though young aspirants taking the prestigious exam will be escorted safely to their centres by the State Government agencies and in contrast to this the stone pelting brigade would be chased away by the security forces and, if required, put behind the bars to restore normalcy in the area of their jurisdiction.
Success achieved by young Kashmiri students in the UPSC Civil Services Examinations in the recent years had ignited the hopes of many other hard working students and also motivated their parents to support them to realise their dreams.
As their club started mushrooming and more and more bright students became passionate to serve the mother country the separatist camp grew nervous and launched a propaganda war to brain wash their fertile minds.
The trigger movement came their way with the killing of Burhan Wani and since then the movement against the Indian state is gathering momentum in different parts of Kashmir valley.
For the first time, the Valley erupted in this way in the aftermath of killing a terrorist. And If this trend continued to flourish and remained unchecked it will create more trouble for the state in the coming days.
