Agartala: Tripura leaders of DYFI and TYF, youth wings of CPIM will stage a state-wide protest movement against the BJP-IPFT coalition government on unemployment issues in the last 40 months.
Castigating the BJP-led government’s mischievous role against youths in Tripura, DYFI state secretary Nabarun Deb in a press conference here in Agartala said that the youth wings of CPIM will stage meetings and conventions throughout the state highlighting the chaos over employment created by the ministers and ruling party leaders.
With the slogan ‘Where is my job?’ DYFI and TYF will hold massive protest movements on an eight-point charter of demands in different sub-divisions of Tripura from July 22 till August 11 next.
The demands include- vacancies to be filled immediately, stop the practice of outsourcing, immediate recruitment of a required number of doctors, nurses, health workers, to arrange permanent jobs for 10323 terminated teachers, introduce fast TET examination and recruiting the required number of teachers, to make the reservation system 100 percent effective in recruitment, to increase 200 days work and wages in MGNREGA project, fulfill the promise of 50 thousand government jobs a year as per vision document, employment of 7 lakh unemployed youths, and smartphones on the hands of all youths.
Speaking with reporters, the DYFI state secretary claimed “A total of 12,836 government employees retired in last 40 months. Only about 3000 were recruited in the Education department on a regular pay scale. Moreover, 10,323 teachers were terminated after the verdict of the Supreme Court. However, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb and Education minister Ratanlal Nath are misleading the youths of Tripura with fake facts and figures of employment”.
“Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) report from January to May of this year claimed that more than 2 crores lost their job throughout the country. The central government is selling government-owned establishments which is a major threat to the youths of the country”, said TYF general secretary Amalendu Debbarma.
