A raft of Promises of performance brings fresh impetus to the campaign for three-phase Assembly election.
Here is the statement of Bihar’s hope Tejashwi Yadav
With the formation of our government, the very first cabinet meeting will give permanent jobs to 10 lakh youths of Bihar.
On the “बेरोज़गारी हटाओ” portal launched by RJD on the 5th of September, so far 9,47,324 unemployed youths have registered themselves. Similarly, 13,11,626 people have registered themselves by giving a missed call on the toll-free number. In all, the registration number has reached 22, 58, 950.
Presently, there are 4.50 lakh vacancies in Bihar. According to the national average and prescribed standards, Bihar is in dire need to fill 5,50,000 vacancies in education, health and home departments.
We are ranked last in the country on the basis of Health Ministry standards.
As per WHO, recommended doctor to population ratio is 1:1000. However in Bihar, there is only one doctor for every 17000 citizens. One can understand the pitiful situation as the population of Bihar is around 12.50 crores.
Based on this calculation, Bihar has a requirement of 1,25,000 doctors. On similar lines, there are requirements of support staff such as nurses, technicians, pharmacists etc. In all, the health sector itself has at least 2.50 lakh vacancies.
There are 50,000 vacant posts in the police force even when the police-public ratio in Bihar is 77 policemen per 1,00,000 citizens. This is the plight of Bihar when the national average is 144:1,00,000. Even in a small state like Manipur, there are more than 1000 policemen for every 1 lakh of its population.
With a total strength of only 1.26 lakh policemen, the state of Bihar that is already ranked high on the crime graph is heading for a disaster if effective steps are not taken on time.
Based on the national average, Bihar requires 1.72 lakh additional policemen. However, the state government has turned a blind eye and no recruitment process has taken place.
One can understand the distressing condition of present Bihar where there are more than 35000 schools without a single teacher.
We require 3 lakh teachers for our students. More than 2.5 lakhs positions are vacant at the primary and secondary levels. 50 thousand professors are required for the colleges and universities.
66% of junior engineer positions are vacant in the state. About 75 thousand engineers are needed in departments like road construction, water resources, building construction, power sector etc.
Apart from this, about 2 lakh posts of clerks, assistants, peons and others need to be filled so that the work can be carried out smoothly with efficiency and quality.
*The first and foremost priority of our government will be to fill the existing vacancies and to create new jobs. We are committed to our promises.
In our very first cabinet meeting, the process to fill these posts will be started. Advertisements will be placed and appointments will be made within a fixed time frame.*
