Says present dispensation provided 30,000 jobs in last three years

Kupwara: Chief Secretary Dr. Arun Kumar Mehta on Thursday said that over 2.50 lakh jobs were given to “undeserved through backdoor channels by past regimes” in the Union Territory of J&K.

“I feel ashamed to say that over 2.50 lakh undeserved candidates had been given government jobs in J&K through illegal and backdoor means,” Chief Secretary Dr Arun Kumar Mehta said while speaking at an event held in north Kashmir’s Kupwara as per local news agency KNS.

He said the present dispensation led by Lieutenant Governor is committed to provide dignified livelihood means to educated youth and is firm to put an end to illegal and backdoor appointments.

“No job will be provided through backdoor means. Poor children who were deprived in the past will be given due rights and jobs now,” Mehta said.

He added some elements are spreading lies about the government that it has stopped recruitment processes “but I want to put forth facts that 30,000 jobs were given to J&K youth in the last three years”.

He also added that gone are those days when government jobs were given on nepotism and corruption and rights of the poor were being snatched. “Those deserving government jobs will be given due rights whereas those who don’t deserve such jobs should opt for other means of livelihood. It is better to go with some business instead of holding a daily wage post,” Mehta said. (With inputs from KNS)
