VISAKHAPATNAM:In a bid to win over the youth, YSR Congress president YS Jaganmohan Reddy Tuesday lambasted the Telugu Desam government for its failure in issuing job notifications for vacant government posts even 15 months after taking charge. He alleged that instead of providing jobs, the ruling party was ousting contract employees and workers from their postings during the corresponding period.
“The fate of DSC candidates who appeared for the exam in October last year is unknown. The Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) has not yet released the number of vacancies available in government departments. The fate of contract employees also hangs in the air. For instance, the government has cancelled over 5,000 contract jobs in Visakhapatnam district alone,” the opposition leader in the Assembly pointed. He said the State Government has failed to fill nearly 5,000 vacant posts in State universities.
Addressing the packed ‘Yuvabheri’ organised by YSRC at Port Kalavani auditorium, Jaganmohan vowed to fight for special category status for Andhra Pradesh for their bright future. “Special package is no match to special category status. Both the State and Central governments are clouding the issue of ‘Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh’ by making confusing statements,” he opined.
Jaganmohan Reddy gave a clarion call to the youngsters to join hands in the fight to achieve the goal.
The YSRC president interacted with students at the meeting and responded to their queries. He stated that he belongs to the Gen-X and said that with their support, he can wash off the dirt in politics. He blamed the delay in sanction of special category status for majority of the problems faced by youngsters.
