Jammu and Kashmir’s Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Sunday said that exams conducted by the Public Service Commission that were cancelled will be held afresh in November and that the selection will purely be based on merit.
Addressing a function at SKICC here, Sinha said those days are gone when jobs were sold on roads and streets of Kashmir and Jammu. “We cancelled the exams conducted by the PSC after allegations of irregularities and ordered a CBI inquiry. Some arrests were made and more are likely to be made,” he said., as per news agency KNO. “All the cancelled exams will now be held afresh in November.” He said that all three exams cancelled will be held in November.
Now only merit will speak,” the LG Sinha said, adding that in the past three years, 30,000 youth got jobs.
He said, there is no denying the fact that every one can’t get a government job and that’s why the administration started self-employment schemes. “In the past three years, over 5 lakh youth were provided a chance of self-employment,” he said.
He said that the government is conducting the B2V programs under mission youth and providing a chance to 20 youth in every program to learn the skill development. The LG said that J&K is witnessing a change and every individual has to play a part. He said that some people who ruined the lives of thousands of people in J&K in the past 30 years never saw their own children suffer in any way.
