Biplab Deb's rejection of 50000 Govt Job promise before election erupts resentment among unemployed youths

AGARTALA, March 10 (TIWN): Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb’s unpredictable answers also shocked media persons at Agartala Press Club today. Being asked by media, what about BJP’s pre-poll promise on ‘50000 Govt jobs which will be given in the first one year of the Govt formation’, Biplab Deb replied, “BJP never ever promised that. What we promised, I can clearly memorize. BJP said that house-to-house job opportunities will be given to youths, but I think due to oppositions’ fake propaganda it is happening”. Deb further clarified, not jobs but giving ‘Rojgar’ is BJP Govt’s target. But how is it possible the major promise in the Vision Document Biplab Deb does not know ??? BJP’s Vision Document unfurled by Arun Jaitley, it says in page 6 Point No-7, “There are about 50,000 vacancies in the state government. We will fill up all these vacancies within a year through a transparent process”. Earlier even though in CPI-M Govt’s time, BJP day-night lamented crocodiles tears for unemployed youths and fooled with JUMLA promises, today in an order Finance Dept 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.In a notification No.F 9 (2) FIN (G)/ 2017/ 711 dated December 17, 2018 Chief Secretary L K Gupta 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”. 

BJP Govt on Saturday is going to complete one-year of its oath taking. Even though tall claims and long lectures on Narendra Modi’s praising have been done in last 1 year by the Chief Minister, but his Govt has failed to fulfil the major point of the Vision Document which was about fulfilling of 50000 vacant posts in first one year. CPI-M’s youth wing DYFI protested against BJP’s JUMLA promise to unemployed youths and the present crisis condition of the state. DYFI Secretary Nabarun Deb said, “Job crisis has hit the unemployed youths in the past 1 year. Neither the Govt could give 50,000 Govt jobs nor 7 lakhs unemployed youths livelihood, rather from police to TSR all ongoing recruitments were cancelled by the present Govt. TET recruitment almost has been stopped. Pump workers, Angawadi workers are terminated. Instead of giving jobs now they are lecturing to rear cows, which is not Tripura’s culture. It’s insult to the unemployed youths, educated youths. Thus, on 1 year completion of we have organized the protest to protest against the Black Terror of BJP-IPFT Govt”.

Moreover, Chief Minister Biplab Deb recently while addressing in  programme, dedicated for distribution of 2000 ducks to Neermahal locals said that the previous CPI-M Govt insulted graduate and masters by giving them fixed paid jobs for long 5 years, whereas by rearing ducks now people can earn 11,000 rupees per month.

Earlier also Biplab Deb advised unemployed youths to rear cows and open paan-shops.

On Sunday in a party programme, Biplab deb had insulted opposition leaders by calling them as “Beggars with katoras” after they sought jobs for unemployed youths in the Assembly.

Tripura’s unemployment rate has been doubled in last 1 year of BJP Govt and 50000 govt jobs in the first year proven as a jumla promise.
