Patna, November 2 (Language) Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Prasad Yadav, accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led central government of spreading communal hatred across the country to divert people’s attention from real issues, on Thursday said that the grand alliance government of the state She is distributing pens among the youth, while BJP leaders are giving swords to job seekers.
Speaking at a function organized to distribute appointment letters to 120,336 newly appointed teachers in Bihar’s capital Patna, Yadav said, “Today is a historic day… Nowhere in the country have government jobs been given on such a large scale at one time.” Those who have received appointment letters today will celebrate Diwali with new enthusiasm this year.
Unemployment and poverty are issues that need immediate attention, he said, adding, “We are distributing pens among the youth, BJP leaders are giving swords to job seekers.”
Yadav alleged, “The Narendra Modi government had promised 2 crore jobs every year. Ten years passed, but nothing happened. After the formation of the Grand Alliance government in Bihar, under the leadership of Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, we fulfilled the promise and gave jobs to 120336 teachers. This campaign will continue in the state.
Rejecting the opposition’s allegation of a scam in teacher recruitment in the state, Deputy Chief Minister Yadav said, “Let them say whatever they want… Basically, the BJP is very uncomfortable with the recruitment drive of the Bihar government. I want to ask BJP leaders how many jobs they gave when they were in power in Bihar. They don’t have any answers.”
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and several other ministers of his cabinet were present at the ceremony. At the function, Kumar and Yadav distributed appointment letters to many newly appointed teachers.
Earlier in the day, Yadav told reporters, “Since we (Bihar government) are providing jobs to the youth…. Now the Central Investigation Agency will start our search.
1.20 lakh candidates qualified in the examination conducted by Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC) for 1.70 lakh posts of teachers in the state. Apart from every district of the state, appointment letter distribution programs were organized in Patna Gandhi Maidan.
BPSC had conducted the Bihar Teacher Recruitment Examination 2023 on 24, 25 and 26 August. The examination was conducted at designated examination centers across the state.
