Scores of post graduate students possessing Masters in Social Work (MSW) Monday alleged that Jammu and Kashmir Yateem Foundation ignored them for their project despite the fact that they were eligible for the posts of Project Coordinator and Field Supervisor. These candidates alleged that Yateem Foundation selected blue-eyed persons as the nepotism runs high in the Foundation Board.

A group of postgraduate students told CNS that Jammu and Kashmir Yateem Foundation sought applications for the posts of Project Coordinator and Field Supervisor. They said that the advertisement notice published in a particular Daily read that preference would be given to students possessing Masters in Social Work and Masters in International Peace and Conflict Studies (IPCS). “But the candidates who have been short listed are completely from different subjects, and they have done PG in History, Sociology, Mass Communication, Business Administration, Management, Commerce, Library Science, Environmental Studies, Information Technology and the most interesting thing is that a candidate having Masters in Physical Education has also been short listed,” one of the candidates told CNS.

These male and female candidates cried foul in the short listing. The Candidates said that fail to understand on what basis they were rejected when they are eligible and have completed their post graduation with flying colours. “We want to know on what basis the candidates from other streams were selected when they have lesser percentage than us,” they said.

The candidates also said that they have lost all the trust on such voluntary organizations, as they have started to function like government departments and prefer only those candidates who are known to them.

When contacted one of the members of selection board of Yateem Foundation told CNS that for the project titled, ‘Save the Children’ they sought applications for different posts. “We had never mentioned that only MSW students will be preferred but had quoted that students possessing general degrees can too apply. The candidates were shortlisted by the Board after proper deliberations and scrutiny,” he said adding that ‘justice and fairness’ is the motto of Yateem Foundation.
