The All Assam Students’ Union, which has been advocating jobs for locals, on Friday said its stand has been vindicated after the Madhya Pradesh government announced that government jobs would only be given to “the children of the state”, reports The telegraph.

AASU chief adviser Samujjal Bhattacharjya on Friday told The Telegraph that jobs for locals has been one of their key demands in view of unemployment in the state. Assam last year had around 17 lakh educated unemployed people. The effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy is likely to add around 4 lakh more to the list, sources said.
“The move by the Madhya Pradesh government shows our demand is justified. We have to see when the BJP-led Assam government and the Centre realise that we need to secure the future of our people first,” Bhattacharjya said.
