GUWAHATI: Assam government launches scheme for former militants.

Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Monday took part in a programme organised by Home Department and Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Department at Chamuapara in Darrang district to distribute subsidies to former militants and pro talk members of militant outfits under Swabalamban project.

The CM said that the Swabalamban scheme was conceived by the state government to provide means of livelihood to the members of militant outfits who decided to come back to the mainstream society so that they could live a life of dignity.

State government was putting a lot of emphasis on creating self employment opportunities for the youth of the state and young generation must take up agriculture with a renewed vigour to contribute to the economic progress of the state, he asserted.

A total of 1800 beneficiaries have been selected under Swabalamban scheme in the state and Chief Minister ceremoniously distributed subsidies to 30 such beneficiaries under the scheme. 28 pro talk ULFA members and their families would be benefited by the goat farm inaugurated.
