Dhanbad, April 11: JVM chief Babulal Marandi today vowed to fill up all vacancies in state departments, luring the youth with a job promise, as he sought to prepare the ground for the next Assembly elections in Jharkhand.
“If JVM comes to power in the state after the next Assembly polls, all vacancies in various departments will be filled up within six months,” Marandi said in Nirsa, Dhanbad.
The former chief minister was addressing around 500 people at Benagoria ground, campaigning for JVM’s Dhanbad candidate Samresh Singh.
The JVM supremo further said, “A large number of posts are lying vacant in various departments due to a lackadaisical attitude of the state government.” But, instead of targeting chief minister Hemant Soren, he trained his guns on the BJP and the Congress.
“All governments, including the present one, in the state were formed with support from either Congress or BJP. As such, some leaders sitting in Delhi have been calling the shots. None of these central leaders understand the aspirations of local citizens. Only JVM can put the state on the right track,” he argued.
