In a press statement, President PAF exhibits his concern over the distorted and selective process of Rehbar-e-Khel (ReK) scheme in District Kishtwar few days ago, that too issued on the retirement of District youth service sports officer on 31-1-2019 added that irregularities in the process have sparked a row, with candidates alleging “favouritism” and “nepotism” in the selection list. The selection list was circulated via WhatsApp group, by the Youth Services and Sports Department. Following public outcry, the same list was later made public after a gap of two days. The list revealed that several highly qualified candidates were left out of the Rehbar-e-Khel scheme selection while simple degree holders, that too whose degrees are questionable were picked instead.
