AGARTALA, Aug 14 (TIWN): Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb while addressing in Ekata Club of Agartala ahead of 73rd Independence Day hit the previous CPI-M Govt for party colour base job recruitments. Biplab Deb said due to people’s frustration against the previous Govt people have unseated them and now another Govt has been formed. Deb said, few are saying that poverty should be one of the criteria in recruitment but it should not be the only criteria on the basis of which the previous Govt did lots of scams and instances are there physics teachers are appointed in biology dept. There should be a pure process of recruitment with transparency. “Who asked not to give jobs to poor people ? I also support that but it should not violate the rules by not following minimum ethics of recruitment and to fill up posts with incapable persons”, said Deb. He also announced over 14000 Govt jobs have been given since BJP Govt in power and 2200 TSR will be appointed out of 50000 applicants. This comment from CM came after former CM Manik Sarkar said that poor people must get their poverty as an eligibility criteria and 10323 teachers were also given jobs on that basis.

Politburo Manik Sarkar on August 13 said that BJP Govt now has forgotten all promises and busy in termination of Govt employees. While talking about 10323 terminated teachers’ case, Sarkar said that poverty must be a recruitment criteria and CPI-M Govt was not wrong to provide jobs on that ground.

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 Supreme Court also did the same, but we still will argue that poverty should be enlisted in the recruitment criteria.

“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 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.

“Rich people can afford private tutors for their children but poor can not but that should not be cause of their deprivation in Govt jobs due to low marks”, said Manik Sarkar.
