Chief Minister Promise 10 Lakh Jobs: 4 Lakh in Already Government Budget. The decision by the Bihar Cabinet to fill 7,823 openings in the land and revenue division has brought attention back to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s pledge to create up to 20 lakh new employment. The BJP is continuing to be sceptical about the government’s plans for an employment generation push early in the following year because of the size of the challenge and the state’s financial predicament.
Nitish pledged in his Independence Day speech that his administration will create 10 lakh new government jobs and an additional 10 lakh employment possibilities.The pledge was made a few days after his Janata Dal (United), or JD(U), joined forces with the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), which had made a campaign promise of 10 lakh jobs for the 2020 Assembly elections and won the most seats. Tejashwi Yadav, the head of the RJD and currently serving as deputy chief minister, benefited from this policy, which also nearly caused the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) to lose ground in the polls.
The proposal to fill the vacancies in the land and revenue department was approved by the government on Tuesday, but the CM explained how his administration intended to go about attaining its goal. Nitish added, “I have requested all the departments to create lists of vacancies so that the government can fill them up in a gradual manner,” as he gave appointment letters to nearly 450 doctors hired by the animal husbandry and fisheries departments.
Prashant Kishor, a political strategist and former associate of Nitish, expressed concerns about the CM’s capacity to fulfill the goal earlier this month. On October 2, Kishor, who will start his statewide padayatra from west Champaran, declared that the 17 years that the current Bihar government had in power had not been able to produce 10 lakh employment. I will end my campaign, recognize him as my leader once more, and work for him if he can create 10 lakh jobs in the next 11 months.
RJD national spokesperson Subodh Kumar dismissed the worries, saying, “There are 3.75 lakh open positions. In addition, jobs might be produced in the health and education sectors to meet the doctor-patient and student-teacher ratios, respectively. Funds can also be raised from society if employment creation is connected to societal goals.
Given that Bihar’s yearly revenue is less than Rs.45,000 crore and its annual budget, which includes the cost of all centrally financed projects, is more than Rs.2.5 lakh crore, Nitish’s goal is still a hefty order. Even if the majority of the employment the government ultimately creates in its departments are of a contractual kind, achieving this goal will be challenging.
