Udaan Trainees Left Unemployed, Stranded In Chennai

Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir unemployed graduates, who left valley for Kanathur in Chennai under UDAAN employment scheme alleged that they were not offered any placement as promised even after completing the three months training program.

The trainees said that they were promised job under the very scheme adding, “we have not been given the same.” They said that they pursued UDAAN placement scheme and attended three months training.

They left valley after they were told that they are being placed in Construction Company called Jain Housing and Construction (JHC) in Chennai.  “But we were left high and dry here with no jobs,” the job aspirants said.

“During the training of three months in the class, main discussions were held over steps taken by Modi led government and the image was created among J&K students that BJP is a communal party,” they said.

One of the job aspirants, Suhail of  Jammu province said, “we were 18 students. Only seven aspirants stayed put and others left for their respective homes back due to the unhygienic and ill treatment of UDAAN with us here.”

He said that out of 18 students, 9 are still awaiting placement.  The Human Resource department of the Jain Housing has reportedly told them that they “can’t issue offer letters”.
