(Asian News Hub) – Self Help Group of Engineers Wednesday said that there scrapping of scheme has left hundreds of families towards starvation.

The SHG demanded restoration of the scheme which was scrapped on 10-08-2020 by the Government.

The scheme was launched way back in 2003 in the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir by then State Government for the un-employed technocrats of all streams and was given as alternative to the Government Job.

According to News Agency – KNO President SHG Syed Parvez while addressing the media said, ” Scrapping of the Scheme has lead thousands of Engineers heart broken, we were not burden on state ex-chequer, we were ‘Aatmi Nirbar’ and were generating the avenues of revenue of others who were working with Self Help Groups.”

In a statement issued to media the SHG said, ” We fail to understand why the Government wants to push the whole Un-employed youth of J&K to beg on the roads, what is our fault why the state Administration snatched this self employment (ATMNIRBAR) scheme to we people.”

Pertinently the SHG has protested many times in the past for revocation of the order of scrapping the scheme.

“We have also raised our issues with the Parliamentarian Standing Committee who recently visited the Kashmir valley, they also have assured us that we will take your genuine issue with the Hon’ble Lieutenant Governor”, read the statement.

The SHG while addressing the media said, disbanding of the scheme has lead their families on the verge of starvation and there are no other means of to earn their livelihood as most of the technocrats have crossed their age limit to get any other job.

The Self Help Group of Engineers during their presser appealed the LG Manoj Sinha to restore this innovative ATMNIRBAR scheme as early as possible.
