‘Fixed salary’ mode will alienate youth: BJP
Jammu: The state unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Monday said the ‘fixed salary’ mode of recruitment in non-gazetted categories was a cruel joke on educated youth which would further alienate the youth of the state.
“It is irony that the National Conference-led government which began its term three years ago with the promise to provide stipend to unemployed youth has ended up further alienating the youth by denying even the basic salary to the educated youth whom it employees under the ‘fixed salary mode’ of new recruitment rules,” said BJP state chief spokesperson Jitendra Singh in a statement here.
He lashed out at the government for new recruitment rules according to which a fresh recruit would get only 50 percent of basic pay for first two years and 75 percent for next three years without any allowances.
Singh said that a government which talks of rehabilitating and giving jobs to surrendered militants and ex-militants returning from PaK has “no moral authority to play such a cruel joke on the educated unemployed youth who come forward to serve the government with unblemished credentials”.
