LAKHIMPUR: The All Assam Unemployed Association (AAUA) has welcomed the Cabinet approval taken on Monday for reservation of 80 percent in managerial and supervisory and 90 per cent in non-managerial cadre in State PSUs and industries availing benefits from the State Government.
In a press communique, AAUA president-in-charge Dharmendra Deori and general secretary Jiban Rajkhowa stated that their organization had demanded the State Government to engage the 50 lakh unemployed youths of the State.
"As a part of this, we have demanded to engage the local youths in 80 percent posts of the central, semi-central public and private sector agencies and industries who are established in Assam. Under such circumstances, we welcome the cabinet decision taken for the reservation of 80 per cent in managerial and supervisory and 90 per cent in non-managerial cadre in State PSUs and industries availing benefits from the State Government," stated the press communique. The AAUA called upon the State government to issue instructions to the public and private sector industries and agencies in this regard, without completing its responsibility just by stamping the decision. The organization further welcomed the cabinet decision taken on the same day regarding the introduction of new syllabus for APSC examinations in line with that of the UPSC.
Notably, the general secretary of the organization has already filed a petition in the Gauhati High Court seeking reformation in the APSC. In this regard, the State government submitted an affidavit to the court favouring APSC reformation.
