DHARMANAGAR / AGARTALA, Jan 16 (TIWN): Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb while addressing in a programme at Dharmanagar said that he would not stand in Election, if he can not fulfill Vision Document’s promises, However, by JUMLA means even though 7th Pay Commission like cheating was claimed as fulfilling of Vision Document, there is no hope for filling up of 50,000 vacant posts in next one and half months and no JUMLA-trick will work to claim it as success. To prove Vision Document was not a JUMLA, now Biplab Deb Govt has to fill up 50,000 vacant posts under State Govt Depts within next one and half months (i.e. within March 9, 2019) as in the Vision Document of the party released before Assembly Election with poll memorandum by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley it has been said, "There are 50,000 vacancies in the State Govt. We will fill up all the vacancies within a year with transparent recruitment policy". But even though the so called transparent policy was adapted, there is no hurry to fill up the vacancies. Ten and half months are already gone and now Biplab Deb has only one and half months in hands to provide 50,000 jobs under Govt Dept to the unemployed youths. 7 lakhs unemployed youths had voted for BJP to get in Govt job but instead of decreasing, unemployment toll has taken a sharp rise in the state with 29% in the December month.

BJP before the election had promised to recruit 50,000 unemployed youths in 50,000 vacant posts, but after the election, the Govt is going just in the opposite direction. 

Tripura’s unemployment percentage is now 28.8%, highest in whole country which was in March-2018 only 15%. Before election, through written form, laid in Vision Document, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley promised that 50,000 vacant posts will be filled up in the first year of BJP’s Vision Document. Not only this, the Vision Document itself was BJP’s -year target as Vision Document was titled as “Tripura Vision Document 2018”, whereas 2019 has been started.

After cancelling 11 recruitments before a month, now Tripura Public Service Commission (TPSC) has cancelled more 18 recruitments on yesterday.  The cancellation was done in a notification on January 2nd, which were earlier in postponing status.Among the cancelled recruitments important recruitments are : Veterinary Office (18/ 2017), Industry & Commerce (21/ 2017), Speech Educator in Education Dept (03/ 2018), Health & Social Welfare (23/ 2017), Computer examination (8/ 2017). Earlier more 11 recruitments were cancelled as :  1) Assistant Professor in Law, Tripura Govt. Law College under Education (Higher) Department, Govt. of Tripura, 2) Statistical Inspector, under Labour Department, Govt. of Tripura, 3) Inspector of Factories in the Factories & Boilers Organization under Labour Department, Govt. of Tripura, 4) Scientific Officer under PWD (DWS), Govt. of Tripura, 5) Inspector of Boilers in the Factories & Boilers Organization under Labour Department, Govt. of Tripura, 6) Principal, Technical (Engineering) Degree College (i.e. TIT) Tripura under Education (Higher) Department, Govt. of Tripura,7) Curator, Tripura State Museum under the Education (Higher) Department, Govt. of Tripura, 8) Principal, College of Teacher Education (CTE) under the Education (Higher) Department, Govt. of Tripura, 9) Lecturer, Diploma Level Technical Institutions in Tripura Under Education (Higher) Department, Govt. of Tripura, 10) Sub-Inspector of Excise under Excise organization, Finance Department, Govt. of Tripura, 11) Agriculture Officer TAFS under the Department of Agriculture, Govt. of Tripura. 

Instead of recruiting, BJP Govt has cancelled all existing recruitments. Most surprisingly Tripura Public Service Commission (TPSC) which is autonomous body, has cancelled many recruitments, which were going since two years.

Finance Dept in notification No.F 9 (2) FIN (G)/ 2017/ 711 dated December 17, 2018 said that Tripura having the “highest numbers of Govt employees” and there is no need of any more Govt employee unless the posts are vacated by surrender or retirement. The order said, “Tripura has the highest level of Govt employment in the country. The level of employment is double in Tripura in compare to the states like Meghalaya. Needless to say, there is need to be extremely prudent in the matter of further recruitments”. 

The notification further says, “Creation of posts will be strictly depend of availability with budgetary resources with Department concerned. Each dept has a number of posts created in the past, which are vacant and no longer required. Hence whenever a department submits a proposal of post creation it should be accompanied with surrender/ abolition of posts with equivalent financial  implications”. In the order it was also mentioned if rules are not followed, then dire consequences will be seen and already Education Dept was issued with a fresh notice for show-cause.

When unemployment problems are in up, recruitment of BJP workers as IT persons have erupted huge resentments. Reports said that those recruitments were done under ICAT Dept without interview and also violating SC/ST reservation rules. Another local TV channel has claimed that those people were actually recruited as “news readers” and to collect information which newspaper is criticizing the ruling party and the Govt. Her it disclosed, why Biplab Deb Govt has announced war against the media houses, indirectly causing own destruction. 10 youths were recruited in Secretariat under RSS activist, BJP State President cum Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb’s recommendation. The 10 persons who were recruited as IT persons are : 1) Sonali Acharjee, 2) Anupam Paul, 3) Satyabrata Sharma, 4) Ashim Kumar Das, 5) Rakesh Dey, 6) Bulti Das, 7) Saptadip Majumder, 8) Chandan Debnath, 9) Sanat Debnath, 10) Tanmoy Dey. All of them worked for BJP in the Assembly Election and allegedly Biplab Deb is using the IT persons for political gains and fraud-activities.
