AGARTALA, Jan 26 (TIWN): Chief Minister Biplab Deb on Friday while addressing at Vivekanada Bayamagar said that “Giving everyone job is not possible, but Govt’s work is to keep the hope alive and make positive attitude among youths”. When Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb continues to claim on making Tripura as “model state” in 3 years, but the reality after 10 months shows Govt’s direction is at the opposite of such promises. When already when Tripura was suffering from massive unemployment, with the BJP-IPFT Govt came in power recruitments’ doors were almost shutdown and unemployed youths were arrested, threatened to keep restrain from any type of protest. Also under Biplab Deb Govt for the first time in Tripura’s history unemployed youths were arrested, legal notices were sent against them after protest. In this condition unemployment rate has reached at 28.8% whereas in a brutal move, all ongoing recruitments were cancelled, regardless, Govt sectors and TPSC led interviews. Almost a year has been crossed amid nil-recruitment. Even though few teachers were recruited but less in number in compare to other years, but permanently the hopes of recruitment has been banished through an official press release by the Finance Dept.Education dept was showcaused by Finance Dept why recruitments were done.

Over 8000 half done recruitments were cancelled after BJP Govt assumed in power and those posts were never reinitiated for fulfilling. 

In BJP’s Vision Document published by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, it was clearly said that once BJP will be in power, it will recruit 50,000 unemployed youths in various Govt Depts in the first year but almost 10 months have been gone, so far no recruitment was proceeded, rather 2018 left as a  year for Tripura’s 7 lakhs unemployed youths almost without recruitment.

Tripura’s unemployment toll which was 15% under the previous Govt and people voted BJP to power to decrease it but now the trend of unemployment has spiked up at 28%. Since around April month, 2018 Tripura has been in national media for wrong reasons. 

With the increasing unemployment problem in Tripura, resentment, frustration have been spiked up among the jobless youths and resentment brewed among Govt job aspirants whose jobs were not only cancelled half-done but the future job opportunities were also snatched by Govt notification. The unemployed youths thus left with only options as rearing cows and opening paan shops, which was also Chief Minister Biplab Deb's suggestion for 7 lakh unemployed youths. 

 On the other side, Chief Minister Biplab Deb has started gradually telling people outside that industry has been brought in Tripura  by BJP Govt, whereas the reality is harsh. In 2019 due to election first 3 months almost Govt depts left without recruitment but after the election since March to now December no recruitment except few in Tripura schools were done and for that reason, Education dept was showcaused by Finance Dept why recruitments were done. Over 8000 half done recruitments were cancelled after BJP Govt assumed in power and those posts were never reinitiated for fulfilling, whereas in BJP’s Vision Document published by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, it was clearly said that once BJP will be in power, it will recruit 50,000 unemployed youths in various Govt Depts in the first year but almost 10 months have been gone, so far no recruitment was proceeded, rather 2018 left as a  year for Tripura’s 7 lakhs unemployed youths almost without recruitment.
