Spirit of Back to Village
The Back to Village program has been started again by the J & K administration so that people at the ground level get the benefits being provided to them by different schemes.
Recently LG Manoj Sinha addressed a gathering at a Back to Village program in Sheikhpora Budgam.
He said the spirit of Back to Village should be nurtured and further strengthened in our culture to make Jammu Kashmir a living example of equal rights, equal opportunities.
He said that the action-oriented deliverables of Back to Village-IV with the realistic assessment of the ground realities are aimed at connecting youth with self-employment & skill development programs, strengthening the foundation of Panchayati Raj institutions, making every panchayat drug-free and ensuring that the last man in the queue reaps the benefit of government schemes.
The UT government has brought a new revolution in youth empowerment in the last two years. From job seekers, today our youth have become job providers.
He assured support and financial assistance for every youth who aspires to be an entrepreneur and wants to start his or her own business enterprise.
Under the ongoing Back to Village programme, we have set a target to identify 15 youth from every panchayat for self employment assistance and 20 youth from every panchayat for skill training, he informed.
