Unemployed Youth Should Have Patience, We’ll Fulfill Our Promises: Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann

Providing employment to the youth of Punjab, was one of the major poll promises of the AAP during the assembly elections. The AAP leaders including Delhi CM Kejriwal and Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann have been continuously slamming the erstwhile Congress and Akali govts for the unemployment in the state. Now as the AAP govt is formed in Punjab, the hope and expectations of the youth is very high. Recently, the youth has been seen protesting for jobs. 

Amidst this, Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann on Wednesday asked protesting youth to bear with the state government as it is working to complete the modalities to ensure that the entire recruitment process may not be stalled due to legal technicalities. While handing over the appointment letters to 2,373 aspirants, Mann said that the protesting youth should have patience and wait for some time to enable the government to complete the requisite formalities for issuing appointment letters.

Appointment letters were handed over for the posts of SDEs and pump operators in the water resources department besides community health officers, staff nurses, ward attendants in the health and family welfare and medical education.

Any action taken in haste for handing over appointment letters to the job aspirants protesting now could land the process in a tight spot in case somebody challenges it in the court, he said.

He, however, asked the youth not to hesitate from joining even at far off places of posting as the great personalities like former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and top film stars Amitabh Bachchan and Shahrukh Khan had left their homes to realise their dreams.

“What these governments had been doing in the last two months of their tenure is being done by our government in the initial two months, which makes clear our intentions to provide jobs to the eligible candidates purely on the basis of merit and their educational qualifications,” said CM Mann. Congratulating all those for getting job letters, Mann asked the concerned ministers to post them near their place of residence so that they could conveniently focus on the new assignment with utmost dedication and sincerity.
