Baramulla: Ruling alliance partner in Jammu and Kashmir Saturday admitted “faulty implementation” of Government of India-sponsored schemes and widespread corruption in public institutes in the state.
Addressing a youth convention in this north Kashmir district, J&K Congress chief Professor Saifuddin Soz said the Congress needed to take “note of the fact that the implementation of Centrally-sponsored schemes including NAREGA, UMEED, UDAAN etc in J&K was faulty and the benefits did not reach the common man.”
Congress should also take note of the fact that corruption had become a “practice in all public institutions which had caused great frustration in the minds of the youth,” Soz said.
Soz said the government should offer an employment package for educated youth.
Besides, the J&K govt should approach the Central government for proper implementation of the Prime Minister’s Special Scholar Scheme for J&K state. “In the absence of the scholarship many students are returning home with frustration,” he said.
Salman Anees Soz, spokes Person All India Congress Committee also addressed the convention while former MLA and General Secretary Shoiab Nabi Lone, and senior youth leaders Sheikh Amir, Mohammad Iqbal Mir, Junaid Ahmad and others were also present on the occasion
