AGARTALA, Aug 13 (TIWN): “We still oppose to the claim (of High Court, Supreme Court) that Poverty should not be under recruitment eligibility criteria”, said Tripura’s former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar on Monday.

While addressing on the occasion of TYF’s meeting, Sarkar said that one former Congress leaders (most likely Sudip Roy Barman) gathered all the petitioners to file case in High Court against 10323 jobs and when the case was placed in the High Court the Chief Justice of that time (Deepak Gupta) terminated teachers on the basis of recruitment process for allocating poverty in the criteria of teachers’ recruitment.

“We opposed that and still we oppose that. Poverty should be in eligibility criteria as economic condition of a family matters a lot”, said Sarkar.

“When Supreme Court also did the same, then State Govt arranged 12000 non-teaching posts’ recruitment as we were not ready to destroy 10323 teachers lives. But again, a case was filed in Supreme Court to stop those recruitment when the appointments were almost ready. That recruitment process was also cancelled…..”, said Manik Sarkar.

Manik Sarkar further said that poverty must be a criteria for recruitment of Govt employees or how the people will get jobs who due to poverty could not gather marks ?
