KOHIMA, SEPTEMBER 29: Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) President, S Supongmeren Jamir stressed on the need for coordination among job providers and job seekers in the State following their statewide touring.
Witnessing the ground reality, he said the NPCC Public Grievances Department was marching ahead with the grievances and basic needs of the people in the State.
Addressing media persons at Congress Bhavan here today, Jamir sharing insights of their State-wide tour stressed that there were more than 78,000 unemployed youths registered under the Department of Employment and maintained that there would be even more unregistered.
He said the tour is ongoing since last month and the NPCC team has covered all districts except Peren and Zunheboto.
He suggested that the Employment Exchange Department should collaborate and link up with the Nagaland Public Service Commission (NPSC) and Nagaland Staff Selection Board (NSSB) and do networking and assess the category into which the educated unemployed can be provided jobs with proper groundwork study.
He informed that there was a gap between job seekers and the Employment Exchange Office. Apart from NSSB and NPSC exams, the Employment Exchange Office had not provided any sort of advertisements in regards to the offers from various companies for the youths to avail.
Claiming that between 2021-2022 there were nil opportunities when it came to availing such offers, Jamir suggested that the Employment Exchange Office could also come up with innovative opportunities and bridge the gap.
For the many aspirants who get qualified for NSSB and NPSC exams but are not selected during interviews, Jamir suggested that the Government should come with some incentives or avenues for the candidates as, it is difficult for the young ones to start afresh and stressed that if this trend continues without any avenues there would be a lot of frustrated unemployed youths and it will be difficult for society and the Government would also be not in a position to help them
Citing the example of Arunachal Pradesh, where Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Wednesday assured that the 3 Wushu players of the State, who could not participate in the Asian Games at Hangzhou in China, would be treated as participants of the Indian Wushu team and given Rs 20 lakh incentive as per the State’s sports policy, Jamir shared that such encouragements were also needed for the State representatives and stressed that the State Government should come forward and reformulate similar policies and with that the State will be in a position to compete with the other States.
Further, Jamir also acknowledged the contributions made by the 15th (IR) Mahila band who were brimming with immense talent at the worldwide ‘India’s Got Talent’, competition and encouraged them to bring laurels to the State of Nagaland.
