Pulwama, Jammu & Kashmir, Sep 21 (ANI): Despite of a boycott call by Hurriyat hardliner, Syed Ali Shah Geelani, thousands of Kashmiri youths have opted for the job of special police officer (SPO) after Union home minister Rajnath Singh’s announcement of an employment package for 10,000 youths in the J&K police. More than 5,000 youths filed applications and appeared for fitness tests for the post of SPO in various district deputy commissioners’ offices across the Valley. Geelani had said in August that the government’s decision to recruit SPOs was aimed at reviving the notorious ‘Ikhwan culture’ in the state and warned youths against taking up the job.
