Showing concerns on uncertain situation in the country, chairman said that dozens of industrial units have been closed due to which un-employment has been increased.
“The opportunities for young and educated people have been dried up in the country and it is impossible for them to find new jobs due to prevailing uncertain situation,” he added.
