Leader of Opposition and National Conference leader, Omar Abdullah on Saturday informed the lower house of J&K Legislature that some candidates under training through Udaan “are facing some problem”.

Speaking during Question Hour, Omar said, “I’m receiving calls since last mid-night that some candidates who are registered under Udaan project are facing some problem.”

He said that these candidates are being trained by “some MBD group”. “They are facing problem in their hostels and the police of the state (where they are residing) have not been helping them,” Omar said, however, he did not disclose the location of the candidates. He sent their addresses and cell numbers to Speaker.

Omar sought immediate action and redressal of their problems.

Responding to the concern showed by Opposition, Dy CM Dr Nirmal Singh said that the government will “soon look into the matter”.

“I met Union Home Minister and our government has prepared a plan under which our ministers will all states where J&K students are studying,” Dr Singh told the house.

The step, he said, is being taken “to restore the confidence of students”.

Earlier, Omar Abdullah also took up the issue of Narbal Water Supple Scheme.

He said that he was assured in 2015 Budgam DDB meet that the scheme “would be commissioned in two months”. “Yesterday, there was severe traffic jam as Narbal residents are facing water shortage and government could not commission the scheme,” Omar said.

Dy CM Dr Singh assured Omar that immediate “action will be taken and the scheme would be commissioned”.
