Omar said he was hopeful that private sector will come out of the ‘economic crisis’ very soon. “Strengthening of private business and economical sector will definitely help the youth to contribute their experience back in the sector they were working,” he said.
Omar heard the grievances of individuals who had problems with regard to release of salaries, seniority and compassionate appointments in different government departments. Omar directed the heads of departments to redress the genuine grievances of the complainants.
The deputations and individuals put forth their demands and problems which mainly were connected with departments like PHE, R&B, Power, ERA, employment, compassionate appointments, relief for handicapped and relief for crop failure due to hailstorm.
Various individuals with health problems also met Omar and requested for medical aid.
Regarding employment opportunities, Omar said that his government has already announced that all the vacant posts in various departments are being filled up in a transparent manner.
He said the Sher-I-Kashmir Employment package was further strengthened recently so that maximum educated youth could be accommodated under it. He advised the youth to come forward to avail the benefits of this “historic scheme.”
Omar advised people to take full benefit of various self help group schemes, social welfare schemes, skill development schemes and industrial schemes which have been mainly tailored to address their unemployment problem.
“Some delegations and individuals and hundreds of persons who were recently retrenched from the private services by private businessmen and other private institutions who suffered colossal loss in recent turmoil met the Chief Minister and apprised him of their problems,” the official spokesman said.
Omar advised them to take benefit of various schemes of the government and hoped that private sector which has suffered during recent past will not only survive but will also work with enthusiasm to fill up all the losses.
Talking to a deputation of Rehbar-e-Zirat, Omar said that the government is actively considering their demands and action in that regard will be taken in due course of time after taking various things into consideration.
