GUWAHATI: Assam's Minister of Information and Public Relations and other portfolios and spokesperson of the State Government Pijush Hazarika on Thursday appealed to various organizations not to create an environment of unrest by staging protests over any issue during the ensuing process of recruitment to Grade-III and Grade-IV posts under the State Government.

Addressing a press conference at the Janata Bhawan here, Hazarika said that 14,30,337 candidates are expected to appear for the examinations for recruitment to nearly 30,000 Grade-III and Grade-IV posts for different departments. He added that Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had already held a virtual meeting with the Deputy Commissioners and other stakeholders on Wednesday and issued all necessary instructions for the examinations, which will be held on August 21, August 28 and September 11.

Referring to certain organizations staging protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA) during this period when the government is all set to conduct recruitment examinations for almost 30,000 posts, the Minister said, "We may have differences in terms of our ideology, but one should not create a restless environment during one of the largest recruitment drives of the State Government, keeping the job aspirants as hostages". Hazarika added that during the 2019 protests against CAA, some leaders and organizations had misled the common people with wrong facts and statements. Some miscreants had even damaged many properties in Guwahati, including the Srimanta Sankadev Kalaskhetra, in the name of protests at that time. However, the people understood the reality and gave a mandate to the present Government, the Minister pointed out.

On the other hand, asked about applicants from other States appearing for State Government jobs, the Minister said that Governments are always run as per the Constitution and under the rules and regulations of the country. "If they are eligible to apply for a few posts, we should not stop them", he said, adding that following the same rules, people from Assam are also working in other states.
