2,300 persons have got government jobs during 20 months of his tenure in the BJP-IPFT government.
Tripura chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb said this at an event in Agartala on Monday evening.
“Out of them, 1,903 got an appointment on a regular scale in Tripura since his government was formed around two years back,” Deb said.
Deb said ‘rumours’ were being spread about joblessness in his tenure to defame the state government.
“A section of people is spreading rumours but the fact remains that during the tenure of the new government, over 2300 government jobs were given, out of which 1903 are regular jobs,” he said.
He said now people don’t have to walk in political rallies, meet leaders of MLAs in party offices, nor they have house on wait for 10 years after applying for a job.
“Deserving candidates get their jobs through a transparent recruitment policy,” Deb claimed.
He alleged a section of people are continuously trying to mislead the people of the state but have failed because only truth prevails.
“If anyone tries to mislead you by saying what you personally received from the new government then ask that person if he can assure a government job, house, loan or any other government facility. If not, they should not play with the innocence of people,” said the chief minister.
He said that people who are sensible are able to realise ‘positive change’ in Tripura.
Deb said within three years of his government, Tripura will be transformed into a model state.
