What is the Congress party's Job Guarantee Registration Programme?
If registered with this Job Guarantee Registration Programme, the Congress government is guaranteeing it will get you a job on a priority basis. In a few weeks, Assam will have a Congress-led Mahajot government. Congress is guaranteeing that it will create 1 lakh government jobs every year, which comes to 5 lakh government jobs in 5 years. Furthermore, it is guaranteeing the creation of 25 lakh private-sector jobs in 5 years.
But how do we believe Congress can create 5 lakh government jobs?
The Congress government will first fill the vacant posts available. A huge chunk of posts in the Assam government are vacant. Apart from filling these up, Thereafter, we guarantee that 5 lakh new posts will be created to fill the governance gap. Assam is facing an acute shortage of teachers, doctors, medical staff, flood relief staff and others. These new posts won't be created just to create new jobs but to fill the governance gap and improve the lives of all the people of Assam. The 5 lakh govt. job promise is thus at the heart of the Congress plan to revive the state and its economy and take it to the next level.
There are at least 20 lakh unemployed educated youth in Assam. How is 5 lakh jobs enough for us?
It is not! That's why Congress is guaranteeing a minimum of 25 lakh private-sector jobs.
How will the incoming Congress government create 25 lakh private sector jobs?
The Congress party has studied the state's economic condition as of 2021 and come to the conclusion that there is huge untapped potential for private-sector job creation in the state. Currently, the private sector in Assam is majorly compromising of small Assamese companies which are unable to grow. Also, the companies are coming in from outside Assam to plunder our resources and create very few jobs in return. The incoming Congress government shall promote local start-ups, help Assamese start-ups scale up, make a policy that all companies working in Assam must hire 80% staff locally for their Assam projects. Furthermore, at least 50% value of government contracts will go to Assamese companies. We shall create a law for this. Guarantee!
Do I have to pay anything to register for the job guarantee?
No. You are confusing us with other parties.
What skills and qualifications do I need to apply for the job guarantee?
We shall attempt to get everyone a job, even those with no degrees, in the public or private sector.
If the incoming Congress government can't get me a job, who do I approach?
The Congress government will create a new ministry - The Ministry of Job Creation. If you are unable to get a job, catch the minister!
