Baramulla employment exchange headless
Srinagar: Seven months after the retirement of the Deputy Director, the employment exchange in North Kashmir’s Baramulla district remains headless.
According to PBI, Deputy Director, employment exchange, Ghulam Rasool Zargar retired on March 31, this year. However, over seven months have passed, but the government has failed to fill the vacancy. The non-availability of the senior official has put brakes on the various schemes.
“From last six months, we have been making rounds of the office to clear our documents about self employment scheme. However, the clerks express helplessness due to the absence of Deputy Director,” Irshad Ahmad Bhat, an applicant said.
“The department is in mess. No one is concerned about the plight of the educated, unemployed youth who want to start business of their own. We’re fed up now with daily excuses of the officials,” Irshad said.
Mushtaq Ahmad Wani, another applicant said many candidates who had applied for financial assistance under self employment scheme brought the issue into the notice of Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah by registering complaint with CM’s grievance cell. However, months past, he said things remained unchanged.
“It seems government is taking the unemployment youth for a ride. The fact is that government is not serious in solving the problem of unemployment,” Wani added.
Despite repeated attempts, senior civil officials could not be contacted.
