Drawing attention of the administration towards despondency among youth, especially educated unemployed, the Provincial President sought expeditious and time bound recruitment to large number of vacancies in various departments. In fact, the government should come out with a calendar on fast-track recruitment and make synergized efforts between designated authorities and departments concerned, he said, calling for out of box solution to address the burgeoning unemployment problem. Due attention is also needed to be paid to create openings for skilled and unskilled work force, he added.
