SILCHAR, February 8: All Cachar-Karimganj-Hailakandi Students’ Association (ACKHSA) central committee is peeved at the deprivation of jobs to the educated youth of the Barak Valley, a process continuing for the last two decades.

Sharing the ire and dissatisfaction of ACKHSA, Sushmita Dev, MP, sent a memorandum to the Chief Minister of Assam, Tarun Gogoi, a few days back, requesting him to look into the matter and initiate necessary remedial action. She urged upon him to ensure that this practice does not continue anymore. Rather, the youths of this valley should be treated at par with their counterparts of Brahmaputra Valley.

From time to time, ACKHSA has been highlighting the cases where the youths of this valley have been subjected to injustice in respect of jobs for Grade III and Grade IV. In their places, youths from outside the valley have been and are being taken in these grades in various state government departments. The protest and demonstration by ACKHSA are being ignored. Sushmita Dev points out that it is a matter of grave concern that despite their good performance in interview and examition, educated unemployed youths of this valley are ignored. There have been several instances of it.

Even, Oil and tural Gas Corporation’s Forward Base at Sriko near here has been at the centre of controversy and protest demonstration recently for denial of jobs to the local youths. A few days back, Teachers’ Training College here was the target of ACKHSA members who kept the principal under siege for hours. The principal confessed how the higher authorities concerned at Dispur connived in the willful deprivation of jobs. Sushmita Dev requests the Chief Minister to persolly intervene for needful action for the sake of justice.
