Stop promising government jobs
Today, all the state governments are claiming to provide employment to maximum number of youth, while a strange statement of the Chief Minister of Goa has come out with grave concern.
Goa CM Pramod Sawant on Saturday said that even if God himself became the Chief Minister, he would not be able to provide government jobs to everyone.” It is not possible to give 100 per cent government jobs to everyone. If tomorrow morning, even if God himself becomes the Chief Minister, it is not possible,” Sawant said during a web conference with village Panchayat representatives of ‘Swayampurna Mitra’ outreach initiative launched in Panaji.
This acceptance shows the reality of the availability of government jobs in the country. Millions of youth aspirants try hard in the hope of a government job, but they do not get success. Many times the recruitment process is not completed for a long time. The situation is not good for the youths and also raises questions to politicians and governments.
The State Governments must stop promising employment and initiate steps to create new job opportunities by skill based training programs in various sectors. People need to focus on other employment alternatives by bringing down their dependence on government jobs. This is the need of the hour.
