Rahul takes Omar to Amethi
Amethi, Dec 18: Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi along with Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Monday met members of women self-help groups here and asked them to make use of several schemes run by the Centre for improving their lot.
Impressed with activities of the women groups, Omar said he would implement such programmes in Jammu and Kashmir and if required take some people from here to train them.
In a brief interaction with mediapersons, Gandhi said when he went to Jammu and Kashmir, Omar told him he wanted to see for himself what work the self-help groups were doing here.
"He has come here to see how the self-help groups work so that he can implement this programme in his state," the Congress general secretary said.
Jammu and Kashmir Congress president Saifuddin Soz and the party in-charge in the state Mohan Prakash accompanied the two leaders on the visit to Amethi.
At the meeting in Jais, Omar told the participants that whatever he found here was more than his expectations. “This is the result of Rahulji's thinking and your hard work that such good results can be seen,” he said.
