While the 70th birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is being celebrated in the country as public service week, the opposition parties SP and Congress are demonstrating their own way on the issue of unemployment in many districts of Uttar Pradesh. Students and youth also took to the streets in protest against the proposal to work as a contract worker for the first 5 years in a government job in Prayagraj. After the skirmish during the protest, the police chased the protesters with sticks and threw stones at the police on behalf of the protesters, while several vehicles were vandalized.
Police used mild force on competitive students opposing the proposal for contractual appointment in government jobs at Balasan intersection in Prayagraj. After this there was a clash between the police and the protesting students. The protesters pelted stones at police vehicles. When the police lathi-charged, the Congressmen threw stones. Many vehicles were vandalized during this period.
What is the proposal of the Yogi government
The new proposal that the Yogi government is considering has a provision for appointing employees on contract for the first five years of a government job. The state government says that the first five years the newly appointed employees will work on contract basis and their assessment will be done every 6 months. An examination can also be conducted in this assessment, in which it will be necessary to get a minimum of 60 percent marks. Those scoring less than 60 percent will be excluded from services.
Will not get any extra benefit
According to the new proposal, employees will not get any kind of service benefit during the five-year appointment of the contract. The government argues that due to the new system, the government will reduce the salary burden and increase the efficiency of the employees. Apart from this, the governance will be stronger, which will benefit the common people.
Priyanka said attack
At the same time, the Congress has also opposed this proposal of the Yogi government. Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi shared the video and tweeted that ‘5 years contract law is a black law. It is unjust to lock in the recruitments of youth. If the youth are taking to the streets to demand their rights against this injustice, then they should be heard. Your sticks cannot suppress this young challenge. ‘
Akhilesh said – the remaining four days of power
On Thursday, SP Supremo Akhilesh Yadav targeted the Yogi government through a tweet. Akhilesh wrote, ‘When against the soldiers, against the farmers. Then understand that the days of power are now four. Earlier, Akhilesh Yadav held a press conference last Wednesday and said that if he returns to power, he will first withdraw the contract proposal.
Demonstrations taking place
In many areas of Prayagraj, youth workers of different party are celebrating Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday as unemployed day. The protesters said that they have not come down to oppose the government, but have gathered to protest the policies of the government. The government is already playing on the issue of employment and is now trying to impose a black law like contract, on which young activists in Prayagraj demonstrated in place on the birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
