Jammu: The VHP will form village-level committees for the empowerment of the weaker sections among the Hindus, especially those living in slums across Jammu and Kashmir, an organisation official said on Monday.

The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) is engaged in various social awareness campaigns to ensure justice and respect to the weaker sections among the Hindu community, the official further said.

“Committees will be formed in each village to supervise various programmes such as skill development training for the uplift of SC and ST Hindus living in slums and forests,” Devji Bhai Rawat, the VHP’s national secretary, told reporters.

“The skill development training is being conducted for uneducated youngsters to enable them to earn a living for their families,” he added after chairing a meeting with organisation officebearers to finalise the programme.
