GUWAHATI: The Asom Songrami Mancha, a regional political party of the state on Wednesday said that the state government of Assam has no concrete policy for employing the youths of the state.
Mancha executive president Adip Kumar Phukan said, “More than 15.7 lakh to 27.1 lakh youths of the state have been undergoing anxiety for they are going to lose their jobs. Even after knowing this critical situation, the Government of Assam could create a concrete road map to employ these youths.”
Phukan argued, “At a time when lakhs of youths of the state have been crying for employment, why the state government is not filling up the posts lying vacant in various departments?”
Referring to the government of Assam’s data as furnished to the state assembly on March 2, Mancha said that the number of posts lying vacant in various departments of the state government are – water resource – 3347, department of transport – 3014, animal husbandry and veterinary department – 1502, home department – 14,172, public works department – 1793, higher education department – 1983, elimentary education department – 17,192, general administration department – 1360, Directorate of Welfare of Plain Tribes and Backward Classes Assam – 6874.
Expressing concern over the large numbers of vacant posts, Phukan said, “Either the government of Assam has adopted a non-recruitment policy or it is planning to recruit right before the election on political interest.”
The working president also slammed Dispur for not declaring the result of the Assam Public Service Commission’s main examinations held in 2018.
