‘Mahabharat’ characters indulged in extortion in job recruitments earlier: CM
Lucknow: Training guns at the previous governments for corruption, discrimination and nepotism, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday said that all characters of ‘Mahabharat’ — chacha, mama, bhatija — fanned out to do extortion in job recruitments, however, now all the job processes are transparent, ensuring selection solely on basis of ‘merit’.
Distributing appointment letters to about 1395 newly-recruited assistant teachers and lectures in Lucknow, Yogi Adityanath said, “transparency and corruption-free atmosphere in UP has reduced the unemployment rate from 19 percent to about 2 percent. In the last five and a half years, the government has ensured every eligible gets employment.”
Under Mission Rozgar, about 123 assistant teachers and 1272 lecturers were given their appointment letters. The Chief Minister on the occasion congratulated the team of the UP Public Service Commission for making the recruitment process transparent and fair.
The CM went on to say, “Today no one can complain about nepotism, casteism and corruption in recruitments. Every process of recruitment was extended under mission rozgar in UP since 2017. Resultantly, where appointments could not be made for years, success was achieved in providing more than 5 lakh government jobs in 5 and a half years.
He said that under leadership of PM Modi, more than 10 lakh Agniveers are being selected. Action is being taken to connect more than 10 lakh youth with jobs and employment in various departments of the Centre. Through Mission Rojgar, work is being done to increase the limitless possibilities of jobs and employment for the youth of the country and the state in their own state and country.
The CM said that a person often becomes careless after getting a government job and that there is a need to overcome it. “Just as you become responsible towards the family, in the same way you have to become responsible towards the school, college, class, yourself and the children,” he said.
He also urged everyone to maintain cleanliness and hygiene in the schools and educational institutions.
The CM said that educational institutions will have to be prepared for local requirements as well. “We have made 1.26 lakh fair appointments in Basic Education Council, more than 40,000 fair appointments in government and non-government aided colleges in secondary education. The transparent process in recruitment inspires you to be honest in life and work,” he said.
