Guwahati: Assam government to start the process of recruiting for around 33,000 government jobs within July end, announced chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Saturday during the ceremonial distribution of appointment letters to 22,958 new recruits in 11 departments of state government at Khanapara field here.

Sarma during the election campaigning ahead of 2021 state polls promised of providing one lakh government jobs within a year of his tenure. However, with Saturday’s appointment, around 28,000 recruitments were done so far.

He said, “Though we had promised to provide one lakh jobs but at the time when we took charge of the government, Covid19 pandemic was creating havoc. It took almost five months for the government from then to contain Covid19 situation in the state and during that period nothing else was in priority for the government than to ensure safety of human lives.”

Sarma said that the recruitment for the 22,958 posts was done in utmost transparent manner and no one had to pay a single penny as bribe for their selection.

“We will recruit another 7000-8000 with July 15 next and will start the selection process for another 26,000 post within July end,” the CM announced.

Amongst those given appointment on Saturday, at least 11,063 were recruited in education department while some 8867 were recruited in home department. Besides, recruitment were done for agriculture, mine and minerals, labour welfare, water resource, social welfare, forest, public health engineering, PWD and health departments too.

“A momentous occasion for all of us as we are on course to redeem our pledge to provide 1 lakh jobs to youth of Assam. By handing over appointment letters to 22,958 recruits in 11 departments, we have tried to set a new precedence in transparent appointments to government jobs,” he added.
