A sinister competition
A sinister competition seems to be on between the Indian Railways and the State government on the issue of depriving youths of Assam in employment. The dust centering round the blackening of the APSC's reputation is yet to settle and new cases of cash-for-job are still coming to the fore. But one wonders whether our so-called popular government led by the dymic Sarbanda Sonowal allows or prefers candidates of other States (Northern) to those of his own for the APSC posts if reports published in media are to be believed. We are compelled to think whether it is being done by the APSC authority (State government?) at the behest of the Union government If it is so, where would our honest job seekers go? Indian Railways has already shown its attitude in employing our youth, for they couldn't find deserving candidates in Assam even for 4th grade posts. We take Rajen Gohain, the Minister of State (Railways) as perso-non-grata as far as his sincerity towards unemployed youth of Assam is concerned. But what about the other BJP leaders including the Chief Minister and the garrulous Health and Education Minister, why are they maintaining deafening silence on this vital issue?
Three contrasting ladies
Right at this moment in the political sphere of India, three ladies belonging two arch rival political parties deserve attention. The three ladies in reference are, Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Exterl Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj. The former lady occupying the prestigious president post of the century-old party due to her family background as Gandhi surme doesn't need any introduction within Congress party.
The other two ladies rose to the current position solely due to their merit. Sushma Swaraj's recent address in the United tion General Assembly (UNGM), where she exposed Pakistan's diabolical gameplan towards encouraging terrorism in the region, left even her Pakistani counterpart speechless. Likewise, Nirmala Sitharaman's decision to spend time with soldiers guarding our frontier in inhospitable places during Diwali, has definitely boosted the morale of our bravehearts. Her recent deeds speak volumes of her merit as the Defense Minister of the country.
