AGARTALA, March 15 (TIWN): Tripura is reeling under acute job crisis as Govt jobs were paused since 2018-January due to the Assembly Season. Once again due to election job recruitments are in pause, would not be restored before May. Thus, around 1 and half year, state Tripura is undergoing massive unemployment problems even though BJP Govt has promised a model state within 3 years. With various excused, even teachers recruitment is in pause. 791 TET qualified unemployed youths are striving to get jobs, when Tripura Govt is crying over teachers’ crisis and managed “Special Relaxation” for teachers recruitment with false claim of teachers crisis. Recently being asked by media, what about BJP’s pre-poll promise on ‘50000 Govt jobswhich 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”.

When before the election BJP 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. 

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.

BJP’s pre-poll promises turned JUMLA, now under media rage and social media rage. 8882271955 number was given to unemployed youths by BJP saying, it will give them job once they give one missed-call in it, but after 1 year of passage this 8882271955 number is saying switched off.

From Govt dept to TPSC all sectors have cancelled the ongoing recruitment erupted massive resentment among the job aspirants, affecting over ten thousand families.
