JAMMU, Oct 17: ‘Kshatriya Sansad’-a social organization for the welfare of Rajputs was launched here today.
Members of the organization told reporters that there was no road map for the welfare of the community and there was a dire need of an organization which can take care of overall development of the community, especially its economically weaker section and members living in far flung areas.
“Therefore after detailed deliberations we resolved to constitute an organization ‘Kshatriya Sansad’ to hand hold the community especially in the remote areas where they are being deprived of basic education, medical care and unemployment,” they said.
“The Kshatriya Sansad will provide free skill education to deserving students, will organize medical camps in villages and far flung areas and will also apprise the general public especially the Rajputs about glorious history of Dogra Rajputs to boost morale of the community,” they maintained.
They said that to start with, the Kshatriya Sansad will provide 50 seats to community students in different streams like MBA, BE, B.Sc Nursing, B.Ed, paramedical courses etc totally free of cost and shall provide 200 such seats every year to community students.
“Free medical camps and free legal help is also on cards and will be rolled out shortly while other services like matrimonial and welfare of senior citizens would be considered with other essential services for the mobilization of the community members,” they said.
A handout stated that initially, the responsibility of the organization is given to M.S Katoch along with Brigadier Uttam Singh (Retd), Vidhi Saran Singh (educationist), Vinay Jamwal (Chartered Accountant), Advocate G.S Thakur, Pawan Chib (social entrepreneur) and others.
