Admin’s decision to withdraw posts dashed hopes of job aspirants: CPI(M)
Srinagar: CPI(M) leader Mohamad Yousuf Tarigami on Saturday said that the Jammu and Kashmir government’s decision to withdraw all the posts advertised by prime recruiting agencies JKSSB and JKPSC before October, 2019 is rather unfortunate as the move has dashed the hopes of hundreds of job aspirants.
In a statement issued here, Tarigami said: “The government’s decision came at a time when the unemployment graph in the region has significantly shot up. The Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE) recently pegged the unemployment rate in Jammu and Kashmir at 22.2 percent, which is highest in the country.”
“The decision will turn hundreds of applicants ineligible for the government jobs who crossed the upper age limit in the same year. The move reeks of the government’s plot of making non-permanent residents eligible for the government jobs in the region, which lost its special constitutional position on August 5, 2019,” he said.
“In its order, the administration stated that it had also withdrawn the posts in which cases were pending before the Honorable High Court. Rather than putting paid to the entire recruitment process, the government should have allowed the recruiting agencies to pursue the matter and make recruitment process in line with the decision of Honorable High Court. The government should roll back its decision forthwith and stop riding roughshod over the wishes of unemployed youth,” he added.
