Unemployed youth and government job seekers in India gave a thumping majority to Prime Minister Narendra Modi twice in 2014 and 2019 general elections with a hope that Modi will give them lakhs of central government jobs by speeding up recruitment process in Staff Selection Commission (SSC), Indian Railways, UPSC and other Group recruitments.
But after six years, crores of job seekers in India feel cheated by Modi.
While job seekers were expecting Modi to issue new job notifications every year and fill lakhs of vacancies by strictly adhering to recruitment calendar every year as promised during elections, the ground reality now is that job seekers are forced to wait for years to know results even after writing recruitment exams.
Years are wasted after issuing job notifications for conducting tests, announcing results, conducting interviews, release merit lists, finalise selection list, get appointment letters and join duties.
Take for instance various recruitment notifications issued by SSC, RRB (Railway Recruitment Board) etc.
Unable to bear the inordinate delay in conducting these exams and announcing results and in completing the recruitment process, lakhs of job seekers have launched social media campaign against Modi.
These hashtags are trending at top slots on "India Trends" for the past few days with millions of posts against Modi indicating the anger and angst at the failure of Modi government in meeting recruitment deadlines.
These hashtags should be or eye-opener for Modi. Modi should at least initiate concrete measures on a war footing to speed up recruitments else he has to face the consequences from unemployed youth and job seekers in India.
