Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s statement during a recent private function at Lucknow didn’t go down too well with the unemployed youths of the nation. The statement from CM Yogi reads that there are ample government jobs available in the state but there is a lack of educated and suitable candidates to qualify for those high-profile jobs.
According to a senior Congress leader, the statement is an excuse. “The statement is an excuse for his government’s failure to create jobs for the youth in UP. Unemployed youth feel insulted and cheated,” said Capt SJS Makker, a senior Congress leader.
Recently for the post of telecom messenger with the UP Police, there were around 3700 PhD holders, 28,000 postgraduates and 58,000 graduates who had applied. The educational qualification for this required post is ‘primary education’.
SP spokesperson, identified as Suni Sajan has said that the CM is making himself a subject of mockery. “Let him come out with the figures of how many government jobs his government created. His government is unable to fill existing vacancies due to repeated paper leaks and has miserably failed to accommodate over a lakh Shiksha Mitras appointed during the SP government,” said Sajan.
