Senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala, MLA and Media Incharge, All India Congress Committee charged that a “sense of betrayal and treachery has marked the three years of BJP rule for India’s and Haryana’s youth, yearning for a job and place in the society to contribute.”
Interacting with the media here, he further asserted that the BJP Governments at Centre and in Haryana “usurped power by misleading the youth with false promises of a bright future.”
“Modi ji promised two crore new jobs every year. And the Khattar Government in Haryana promised employment to every youth of Haryana and a monthly unemployment allowance of Rs.6,000/Rs.9,000 to those who would not get a job.”
Mr.Surjewala pointed out that after three years, Haryana’s youth find themselves at a crossroad with no hope of livelihood or employment and with the future looking bleak in Khattar regime’s rule. “Malfeasance, fraud, and corruption in jobs have reached a nadir. In this entire web of deception and treachery, the Khattar Government projects itself to be sometimes helpless (when it is incapable and incompetent) and at other times, there appears to be a complicity of the ruling dispensation.”
Mere 7,886 recruitments made by Khattar Government in three years as 20,000 terminated
In three years, the Haryana Government could recruit a pittance of 7,886 jobs through Haryana Public Service Commission (HPSC) and Haryana Staff Selection Commission (HSSC) (1,160 jobs through HPSC and 6,726 jobs through HSSC), which is a glaring example of grave injustice done to Haryana’s youth.
As against this, nearly 20,000 youth have either been sacked or given a notice of termination of services, he added. Services of 3,581 Guest TGT teachers were terminated, but Supreme Court granted stay to them. 3,500 Guest JBT teachers have been put on notice to be sacked, out of which 100 teachers from Panipat and Yamuna Nagar Districts have already been terminated. 2,300 Computer Teachers and 2,622 Computer Lab Assistants, whose services were terminated twice, have been taken back in July, 2017 after a prolonged agitation. Services of about 1,500 employees working in NHM and NRHM were also terminated. In addition, 5,000 daily wage/temporary employees working in PWD, Public Health Engineering, Irrigation, Forests and Food & Supplies departments have also been terminated.
“Truth is that Khattar Government is attacking the livelihood and employment of the youth,” he alleged.
Khattar Sarkar has become “Paper Leak Sarkar”
Corruption and scams, both in education and employment, is an everyday affair. Future of youth has been put under a dark cloud of uncertainty on account of the multiple Paper Leak Scams committed in HPSC, HSSC, Police Recruitments, HBSE, HTET, AIPMT, NEET and so on.
Mr.Surjewala claimed that as many as 13 paper leak scams have been exposed. These include – (1) All India PMT Paper Leak Scam (May 2015) involving an embezzlement of Rs.100 crore; (2) HBSE Plus 2 English Paper Leak Scam (March 2015); (3) HTET Paper Leak Scam (November 2015); (4) Kendriya Vidyalaya Primary Teacher Paper Leak Scam (October, 2015 – Rewari); (5) Clerk Recruitment Paper Leak Scam (December 2016) in which name of a Panipat-based School belonging to a BJP leader has been found to be involved; (6) Excise Inspector Recruitment Scam (December 2016); (7) HBSE 9th Class Hindi Paper Leak Scam (March 2017); (8) NEET Paper Leak Scam (May 2017); (9) B. Pharmacy Paper Leak Scam (July 2017); (10) HCS (Judicial) Paper Leak Scam (July 2017); (11) Agriculture Inspector Recruitment Scam (July 2017); (12) Conductor Recruitments Paper Leak Scam (September 2017) and (13) Assistant Professor, College Cadre Paper Leak Scam (February 2017).
“Thus, the credibility of the entire Khattar Government is under a cloud. Malfeasance, frauds, and corruption reached the highest level of administration with the kingpins of paper leak scams roaming scot-free. The BJP regime, which came to power with the promise of transparency, has betrayed Haryana’s youth.”
