ASSAM: Assam's Chief Minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma, has unveiled an ambitious plan to release job announcements for 22,000 positions within the next two months. This initiative is part of a larger effort to hire 100,000 individuals for various government roles under the current BJP-led administration.
In a recent official ceremony, Sarma personally handed out appointment letters to 514 successful candidates who had cleared the Assam Direct Recruitment Examination (ADRE). This examination aimed to fill vacancies in both Class-III and Class-IV positions across several government departments.
Sarma proudly shared, "Since assuming office, we have already offered a total of 87,402 government jobs. Within the next month or two, we will be publishing advertisements for another 22,000 vacancies. This will surpass the 1-lakh job promise we made earlier."
During the 2021 Assam assembly election campaign, the BJP pledged to create 100,000 government job opportunities, a commitment now being realized.
Sarma further explained that the state cabinet had officially approved the plan to provide these 100,000 job opportunities to unemployed youth in Assam during its inaugural meeting in 2021. However, due to the disruptions caused by the second and third waves of the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire process was delayed.
"The recruitment process gained momentum once the pandemic subsided. By the time we celebrated the second anniversary of our administration, we had successfully distributed appointment letters to nearly 86,000 job seekers," he added.
