He said that the Assam government has been giving false hopes to the unemployed youth. “The government has been issuing advertisements for jobs and then after the exams and sometimes even after the deadlines, there are no updates or development,” he said.

He also alleged that the government has been issuing advertisements only to collect revenue and not to provide jobs to the youth.

“In recent advertisements for third and fourth-grade jobs, the application fee has been reported to be as high as Rs 1400. This seems to be an injustice to those youth who are willing to apply,” he added.
