Save career of 4500 highly qualified youth

Saakshar Bharat Mission (adult skill development programme) was launched by the Prime Minister in 2009 following which applications were invited for the recruitment of preraks, block coordinators, district coordinators purely based on merit at Panchayat levels, block levels and district levels. The employees who were appointed have been performing their duties with dedication and devotion in respective schools from past 6 to 7 years under the supervision of concerned DIET principals, zonal education officers and headmasters. The main objective of the scheme is to provide basic and continued education with the special focus on female folk. The motive of the said scheme is to make our country and state a literate society as illiteracy continues to be a big concern. In addition our own legitimate duty and our services have been utilised for various purposes such as academic support in schools, booth level officers, CAPD, NAFSA and election duty.

After completion of 6 years service by getting various extensions from MHRD, J&K government started a process to frame a job policy in favour of SBM employees for which communications were sent to several quarters and directors of both divisions and joint director SBM were requested to submit necessary inputs for further appropriate action.

All chief education officers have furnished their reports to the concerned directors and both the directors also have submitted same files in the office of Secretary School Education but the file is lying in the planning department of school education since long. It is evident that Saakshar Bharat Mission has not been granted further extension from 31-03-2018. It has put a question mark in our careers.

We are waiting to get absorbed in the education department from the past 6-7 years.  We request the concerned authorities to step in and save the future of 4500 highly qualified youth.

Save natural springs in Ganderbal

Nature has bestowed Batwina Ganderbal with ample fresh water resources in the form of springs. For decades, water of these springs was used for drinking and domestic purposes. There were hundreds of natural springs in the area but now the story is quite different as we have lost most of them. Now the remaining springs are in shambles. These springs have been surrounded by the heaps of garbage and stench. Need of the hour is to preserve these water bodies. If we don’t wake up the day is not far  when these natural springs will be seen nowhere in Kashmir. The authorities should also come up with some plans to conserve these water bodies.

PHE in deep slumber

Pure drinking water is recklessly flowing from the water pipe at the roadside of Wanabal near Railway Bridge, Nowgam. The PHE department seems to have turned a blind eye towards this issue. It’s an irony that PHE keeps on telling the people that they should save the drinking water. Before giving sermons PHE should plug these pipes and prevent drinking water from getting wasted. One hopes that PHE wakes up from deep slumber.


Provide transport facility

We the residents of Haba Kadal  request the authorities to provide public transport facility from Lal chowk to Zaina Kadal/ Bohri Kadal via Chinkral Mohalla  as we don’t have any transport facility through this route.

Overloading in mini buses

We the residents of Hamdaniya Colony Bemina are facing immense problems due to overloading in minibuses especially during the evening hours.

Conductors carry more and more passengers and people even climb on roofs and hang on the doors of these bused with high risk of injuries as well as chance of accidents.

We request the concerned department to increases mini buses or launch sumo services to mitigate the sufferings of the people.
