KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Expressing concerns about the mass migrationinfo-icon of Afghan youth, the New Line Organisation (NLO) on Thursday accused the government of negligence to create job opportunities for them.

Fahim Sediqi, NLO director, told journalists here that illegal migration of youth to foreign countries had increased alarmingly what he said was a major concern for civil societyinfo-icon organisations in the country.

Seddiqi accused the government of indifference in this regard, saying his organisation was working on a plan to prevent the problem and would submit it to the government. He said they would also incorporate views from civil society activists, political and media elites in their plan.

He said their suggestions included reporting the consequences of illegal migrations and the creation of a committee comprising representatives from three relevant ministries in coordination with civil society organistaions and the UN to find ways.

NLO also suggested that the government should limit the number of foreign employees in companies and other organisations and provide more employment opportunities for the Afghan youth.

The organisation also warned the government of demonstrations if no step was taken.

Kamal Sadaat, information and culture deputy minister, said: “Some people are just enthusiastic to migrate out of the country.”

He said people’s cooperation with the government was needed to tackle the issue.
