BSP supremo Mayawati suspicious if PM Modi's job promise is "election hoax"


The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Tuesday grew suspicious on 10 lakh job announcement made by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked if this is another “election hoax”. The BSP leader also pointed out that PM Modi had earlier promised to deliver jobs before the Lok Sabha General Elections. 

Mayawati took to Twitter to write: “Due to the wrong policies and working style of the Centre, poverty, inflation, unemployment and devaluation of rupee are at their peak due to which all are suffering and restless, then the center has now announced 10 lakh recruitment in the next one and a half year i.e. before the Lok Sabha general elections. Is this not a new election hoax somewhere?” 

The BSP leader said that there were many government posts for reserved categories that have not been filled yet. She said, “At the same time, many times more government posts of SC, ST and OBC categories are lying vacant for years, which the BSP has been demanding to fill by running a special campaign, both inside and outside the Parliament. The government is silent about them whereas this society is most sad and suffering from poverty and unemployment etc.”

Recruitment of 10 lakh people be done by the Government of India in a mission mode in the next 1.5 years, announced the Prime Minister’s Office on Tuesday.

A tweet from the official Twitter handle of the Prime Minister’s office said, “PM Narendra Modi reviewed the status of Human Resources in all departments and ministries and instructed that recruitment of 10 lakh people be done by the Government in a mission mode in next 1.5 years.” 

With this, the Centre has set a deadline for filling up 10 lakh vacancies by December 2023 for which all the recruitments shall take place within 18 months

The Ministry of Labour and Employment on March 24 this year said, “The data on Employment and Unemployment is collected through Periodic Labour Force Survey (PLFS) conducted by National Statistical Office (NSO), Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MoSPI) since 2017-18.”
