Amaravati (Andhra Pradesh) [India], June 22 (ANI): Communist Party of India's (CPI) Andhra Pradesh State secretary K Ramakrishna on Tuesday urged the state government to release a new job calendar and fill all vacancies in the government departments.
While speaking to ANI, Ramakrishna said, "I request the government to amend the recent job calendar released. It is full of lies. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy promised in its annual calendar to fill 2.3 lakhs of posts, but the job calendar recently released has only 10,000 jobs."
"Further, it is merely a job calendar. No official notification has been issued in this regard. I condemn the state government for suppressing the unemployed youth who tried to protest against the shallow job calender. Our CPI will soon hold an all-party meeting on the matter of jobs", he said.
Yesterday, the student unions of Andhra Pradesh held a protest at the office of the Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission to express their disappointment with the recently released job calendar of the state government. The police had said that students tried to protest without permission.
The representatives of the Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI), Students' Federation of India (SFI) and Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) participated in the protest.
"The job calendar recently issued by the state government is not in accordance with the vacancies. Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had promised before elections that he would fill up all vacancies in government jobs. But now he changed his words. Home Minister Sucharita said that 6500 constables and SI jobs will be recruited every year. But in the job calendar, only 450 posts are notified. Like that many thousands of posts are vacant in group 1, group 2, etc. posts. But only 10,000 posts are to be filled up," student union leaders had said. (ANI)
