Govt provided jobs to 40,000 persons: Sakina
Bandipora, Feb 6: Social Welfare Minister, Sakina Itoo has said the coalition government had provided 40,000 jobs to the people adding the recruitment agencies had been asked to expedite the selection process.
Addressing a rally here, Sakina said the coalition led by Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah was keen for development of all the three regions of the State.
She said Rs 10 crore had been earmarked for providing loan to women for setting up their own income generating units to ensure their economic independence.
“The government has also streamlined the pension payment to the beneficiaries of the Social Welfare Department and the possibilities are being explored to set up separate counters in specific J&K Bank branches for the convenience of beneficiaries,” Sakina added.
Referring to People’s Democratic Party Sakina said, “Opposition is always looking for opportunities to disrupt the peace and development in the State.” “They instigated the people last year in peak season and damaged the economy of the State.”
Sakina said “Omar is the first Chief Minster who is keen to resolve the long pending Kashmir dispute by saying that Kashmir is a political issue and needs to be resolved politically.”
Slamming PDP Chief and former chief minister, Mufti Muhammad Sayeed, she said “Omar is not like Mufti Sayeed who changes his slogans.”
“Mufti had said that two members of every family will be give employment, but later denied of making such a promise while we provided employment and allowance to unemployed under SK Employment Scheme as promised by CM,” Sakina said.
She cautioned officers that anyone found indulging in malpractices in disbursement of financial assistance, scholarship and providing of nutrition, would be severely punishment.
Sakina asked the people to take benefits of various schemes launched by the government and asked the officials to apprise the people about the same.
