Mission Rozgar: CM distributes appointment letters to 40 newly recruited district social welfare officers and minority welfare officers

Lucknow: Accusing the previous government of sabotaging the sanctity of the recruitment processes, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday urged the newly recruited social and minority welfare officers to work honestly in the interest of the public. 

 "As you have been selected through a fair and transparent process, without any ‘recommendation’ or ‘bribe’, you are expected to perform accordingly," the CM advised the young recruits. He said the basic premise of the administration should always be to provide the benefit of government schemes to public without discrimination.

“Before 2017 the Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission used to be a hotbed of controversy. There were controversies, allegations linked with the commission. Even CBI investigation was done. The court had to put a stay on every recruitment," the CM recalled  adding "had the same discrepancies taken place in the process of appointment, you would never have been selected."

   He said his government provided  4.5 lakh government jobs recruitment to which was stalled owing to Corrupt practices during the previous government.

In an event held at his official residence in Lucknow, CM Adityanath handed over the appointment letters to 40 newly recruited district social welfare officers and minority welfare officers selected through UPPSC. Minister of Social Welfare Ramapati Shastri, Minister of Minority Welfare Nand Gopal ‘Nandi’, State Minister Mohsin Raza were also present at the event.

The CM maintained that the department of Social welfare held an important place as it catered to  half of the population through various schemes like pensions, scholarships etc.

“The Department of Social Welfare is nodal department for Mukhyamantri Samuhik Vivah Yojana under which more than 1.52 lakh girls have been helped to get married. Even Abhyudaya Coaching is also being run by this department.

Hitting out at the opposition, the CM said that the intention of the previous governments was not pure. "After coming to the government, were moved those discrepancies and today youth are getting jobs," said the CM.

Highlighting the achievements of the government, the CM mentioned, “Uttar Pradesh is now moving forward as a new economy. The team of Lucknow was announced in IPL, this is the result of teamwork. Today, Uttar Pradesh is the second-largest economy in the country."

Broadsiding the opposition, the CM further asserted that ‘Pehle kanoon vyavastha badhaal thi, arajakta aur gundagardi thi har taraf. Today the state is progressing in every field, the state ranks number two in Ease of Doing Business. Many investors from abroad are attracted to invest in UP.

"All efforts were made in the Corona period too with teamwork, Now the state is number one in providing ease of living with the implementation of 44 central government schemes," he added.

The CM said “humne reform kiya aur shasan, prashasan ke saath janta janardan ne perform kiya toh aaj UP har kshetra me aage hai.” 

On this occasion, the newly recruited officers also expressed their views and termed it as a happy coincidence of life to get a job in this department after getting an education from the coaching of Social Welfare Department.
