The state government has also launched a campaign to encourage students in secondary schools to opt for vocational courses while continuing with the regular curriculum.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, while distributing appointment letters to about 1,395 newly-recruited assistant teachers and lectures here said that “transparency and corruption-free atmosphere in the state has reduced the unemployment rate from 19 per cent to about 2 per cent. In the last five and a half years, the government has ensured every eligible person gets employment.”
Under the Mission Rozgar, about 123 assistant teachers and 1272 lecturers were given their appointment letters. The Chief Minister on the occasion also congratulated the team of the UP Public Service Commission for making the recruitment process transparent and fair.
“Today no one can complain about nepotism, casteism and corruption in recruitments. Every process of recruitment was extended under Mission Rozgar in UP from 2017. Resultantly, where appointments could not be made for years, success was achieved in providing more than five lakh government jobs in five and a half years,” he said.
The CM said that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, more than 10 lakh Agniveers are being selected. Action is being taken to connect more than 10 lakh youth with jobs and employment in various departments of the Centre. Through Mission Rojgar, the work is being done to increase the limitless possibilities of jobs and employment for the youth of the country and the state in their own state and country, he said.
The Chief Minister said that a person often becomes careless after getting a government job and that there is a need to overcome it. “Just as you become responsible towards the family, in the same way you have to become responsible towards the school, college, class, yourself and children,” he said.
Chief Minister Yogi said that educational institutions will have to be prepared for local requirements as well. “We have made 1.26 lakh fair appointments in the Basic Education Council. More than 40,000 fair appointments in government and non-government aided colleges in secondary education. The transparent process in recruitment inspires you to be honest in life and work,” he said.
The CM also warned the newly-recruited candidates not to fall into the trap of transfer-posting. He also said that the perception about Uttar Pradesh has changed entirely and the state is being looked up to all over the world.
