Agartala, July 20, 2022: Newly elected Congress MLA Sudip Roy Barman on Wednesday slammed the state government for turning deaf ears towards the youth suffering from the shrinking employment opportunities in the state.
“Today our youth is frustrated. Job aspirants with all the necessary qualifications are sitting idle in their homes. Once we heard the education minister making tall claims. He publicly said that his departments is capable of recruiting 14,000 people at on go but he is not finding eligible candidates. And, today TET I & TET II qualified candidates are jobless. No one is there to answer their questions”, said Barman.
Lashing out at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, Barman said, in the vision document the BJP promised to lay emphasis on sectors like health and education. “The reality is in stark opposite. The youth Congress has started its series of protests raising the burning problems being faced by the youth. The Congress party is with the youth and it wants that government to create ample opportunities for the young ignited minds”, said Barman.
He urged the government to resolve the plight of 10,323 teachers. “10,323 teachers have been betrayed by the government. Earlier, there were provisions for regularizing contractual employees after serving for ten years. After coming to power, the present state government scrapped the rules but it did not frame any fresh rule instead of that. The fixed pay employees are in distress as they are waiting for regular pay-scale after completion of the five years fixed term”, said Barman.
The Congress MLA was speaking at the 72-hour long sit-in-demonstration on 11-point charter of demands organized by the Tripura Pradesh Youth Congress in front of City Centre here is scheduled to end on Wednesday. Several leaders of the Pradesh Congress including veteran politician and former Chief Minister Samir Ranjan Barman and AICC secretary Szarita Laitphlang participated in this programme of the Youth Congress since July 18 last.
