Union home minister Amit Shah, accompanied by Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, presented appointment letters to 44,703 successful candidates selected for various Class-III and Class-IV positions in the state government.
This ceremony marked the completion of the appointment process for these candidates, bringing the total number of job seekers employed by the BJP-led government to 86,782 over the past two years.
Addressing the gathering at the Veterinary College Playground in Khanapara, Guwahati, chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma described the appointment letter distribution as a significant milestone for both the selected candidates and himself. He expressed gratitude to the people of Assam for their faith in the current government, which had motivated him to work towards fulfilling his promise of providing government jobs to 1 lakh employment seekers in the state.
While acknowledging the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, chief minister Sarma affirmed his confidence in reaching the target of 1 lakh recruitments soon. The government is in the process of issuing advertisements to fill an additional 22,000 vacant positions, ensuring further employment opportunities for the youth.
The CM emphasized the transparent and merit-based nature of the recruitment process under the current regime, leaving nepotism and corruption in the past. He urged the newly appointed candidates to remain motivated and dedicated in their service, envisioning a transformed and progressive Assam in the next two to three decades.
Furthermore, Himanta Biswa Sarma called upon the successful candidates to play a pivotal role in realizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of establishing India as a world leader by its 100th year of Independence. He highlighted the collective responsibility of nation-building and encouraged the recruits to make the best use of their period in service.
In addition, the chief minister appealed to the youth of Assam to embrace entrepreneurship, stating that relying solely on government jobs would hinder the state’s progress. By fostering an entrepreneurial spirit, Assam can further advance on all fronts and contribute to the nation’s development.
The distribution of appointment letters to thousands of candidates symbolizes the government’s commitment to generating employment opportunities and driving economic growth in Assam. As the state continues its journey towards prosperity, the new recruits hold the key to realizing its potential and making significant contributions to Assam’s development.
