Early Times Report

Jammu, Dec 1: With no let up in the alleged discrimination with Jammu region, in the latest New Delhi has allegedly blocked funds needed to complete construction of five polytechnic colleges in winter capital region -making the languishing projects get delayed for around five years.
Officials said in 2012, the then government had started establishment of as many as 18 polytechnic colleges in the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir.
The work on five of the colleges coming up in Jammu in the districts of Poonch, Doda, Kishtwar, Udhampur and Ramban has been pending for the non-availability of funds.
Officials said for the project completion each of the upcoming colleges were allocated Rs 8 crore while Rs 4.3 Cr were meant for procurement of equipments. And additional Rs 5 Cr were also allocated to each of the colleges.
Sources said the projects initially launched by the Ministry of Human Resource Development were subsequently to be implemented by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship. Official sources
Chronic discrimination!
n the Civil Secretariat said the MSDE has stopped the funding.
Officials said most of the work on these colleges has been completed but that an additional around Rs 15 crores were needed to complete the works.
"This is height of callousness towards the Jammu region that the concerned have not even bothered to release the funds such that technical education facilities could be started in the districts of this neglected region," said a senior official on the condition of anonymity.
He said despite repeated attempts the concerned have not released the pending funds. "On one hand the government wants to encourage the youth to join technical courses whereas the same government has been unable to release the pending funds for Jammu," the official added.
When contacted a senior official admitted that the work on the colleges was pending. He said the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir was hopeful to get funds released soon.
Meanwhile the people of Jammu region have appealed the Lieutenant Governor GC Murmu to personally look into the matter.
