Uttar Pradesh, Mar 24: The ruling Samajwadi Party's plans to dole out jobs to jobless in the state have gone kaput after more than 3,000 forms submitted at the Amroha district employment office were found to be in the garbage bins on Wednesday.

It is believed that the applications were deposited over the last three days, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The dumped papers were first spotted by 28-year-old Nazakat Ali, who was shocked to find the forms in a garbage heap.

"To my utter shock, I found at least 30 forms in the garbage heap and immediately intimated the other applicants whose documents had also been consigned to the trash bin," said Nazakat Ali.

"The idea was to involve as many aspirants as possible to forcefully raise the matter," he said.

"The SP should have straightaway declared after winning the assembly elections that it wouldn't fulfil the promises dangled to the state's electorate."

"By throwing our registration forms in the trash can, the party has heaped ignominy on the already suffering jobless," he said.

"We were shocked to see our forms lying in a garbage dump. It took me six days to submit the form," said Guddi Devi, a post graduate student.

"On Sunday, I had stood in the queue from 6 am to 4 pm to deposit it. Unfortunately, all my efforts have come to naught," she said.

"There are broken windows in our office and no guard to keep a watch," said Usha Arya, Amroha's district employment officer.

"Furthermore, there are no shelves to facilitate maintenance of records," she said.

"The matter will, however, be investigated and the guilty brought to book. I have reported it to the police," she said.
