National Conference on Wednesday said everything that Mehbooba Mufti had promised to the youth of the State so far had turned out to be a lie and that her recent promise of jobs to the youth in lieu of their support was yet another hollow statement aimed at misleading the youth of the State and exploiting them to reap political dividends. National Conference State Spokesperson Junaid Azim Mattu said on one hand Mehbooba Mufti’s Finance Minister says all government employees are liabilities and that he won’t create any further jobs and on the other hand she is herself offering jobs to exploit our youth.
