The Opposition Congress has flayed the Left Front government in Tripura over its recruitment policy while demanding to set up School Service Commission to appoint teachers to upgrade the standard of education. Talking to mediapersons here on Wednesday, Leader of the Opposition Ratan Lal Nath alleged that more than 44,000 posts had been abolished and about 92,000 eligible youths had crossed the upper age limit for government jobs due to faulty policy, stated a UNI report. “Still about 47,000 posts are vacant but the government is reluctant to fill it up and is delaying the process,’’ Nath said, adding the authority had been harassing the candidates in the name of providing employment to 10,000 teachers on fixed pay at various levels in altogether 3,909 schools in the state. “Quality of education in Tripura has been gradually declining because of nepotism and only party cadres are being recruited in schools since there is no School Service Commission,’’ he argued. About 92,000 youths have crossed the age of 37 years, the upper limit for government jobs, who had applied in 2002 and 2007 in response to the advertisements. Last month the government again issued advertisements for the posts of 10,000 teachers, directing youths who had applied for the same jobs twice in 2002 and 2007 not to file fresh applications. “The applicants on the two earlier occasions have not been given jobs and now fresh applications are being invited,’’ Nath said and accused the state government of initiating a process by which workers and supporters of the ruling party would be rewarded with jobs.
