CPI (M) leader and MLA Kulgam Mohammad YousufTarigami Thursday expressed dismay over the ‘tardy’ implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in Jammu and Kashmir saying contrary to the claims of the government these schemes are going on at snail’s pace.

There are central schemes and programmes which are focused on wage employment, self-employment and poverty alleviation. But the implementation of these schemes is going on at snail’s pace. The inadequate response to the ground situation of livelihood concerns, have made these schemes ineffective. There should have been more allocations for proper implementation of these schemes. However, instead subsidies are being either withdrawn or reduced in central sponsored schemes. Due to less involvement of people in these schemes, the idea with which they were launched is marred, he said while addressing NRLM workers in Kulgam.

There is need to strengthen Self Help Groups (SHGs) under as a pre-requisite for poverty reduction under National Rural Livelihood Mission.
