SAAKSHAR BHARAT MISSION TURNS MESSY IN BARAMULLA
Norms violated in appointment of block coordinators, motivators
Baramulla, Nov 2: In blatant violation of norms many block coordinators and motivators have been engaged under the central sponsored flagship programme Sakshar Bharat Mission (SBM) without following the laid procedure in Baramulla district.
According to the SBM in each panchayat halqa, two motivators, a male and a female are to be engaged so that the basic education is extended to the adult illiterates in the age group of 15 and above.
In Baramulla district out of 365 panchayat halqas, 298 have been covered by the concerned authority. Officials said 596 males and females have been engaged for the SBM while 67 panchayat halqas are yet to be covered.
However, sources said all these engagement have been made in blatant violation of norms. The posts were filled up without publicizing them in newspapers.
“In Kulgam, Islamabad and Kupwara district the posts under the SBM were advertised in leading newspapers. However, in Baramulla district all norms were flouted,” said an aspirant Asif Hussain of Wagoora Baramulla.
The candidates minced no words to accuse the officials of Zilla Lokh Shiksha Smitti Baramulla of engaging blue-eyed candidates for block coordinators and the motivators.
"The concerned officials have taken hefty amount as bribe to engage the blue-eyed candidates,” alleged a female candidate.
“Despite topping the merit list and possessing experience of working as a volunteer I was dropped from the final list. Instead a girl with less qualification and experience than me was appointed as motivator,” alleged another aspirant Khalida Bano.
When contacted the Deputy Commissioner Baramulla Khawaja Ghulam Ahmad, who is also the chairman of the Zilla Lokh Shiksha Smitti feigned ignorance about the matter.
“I have no knowledge of such appointments as I recently taken over the charges. However, I will definitely look into the matter," the DC said.
