The recent post recruitment at Allahabad Municipal Cooperation worked as a great exposure since over 1.7 lakh students applied for the 116 posts of sweepers.
Yes, you heard it right. These included several highly qualified degree holders, from B. Tech students to MBA graduates which is a bit shocking keeping in mind the qualification for this post.
Amidst the attempts of the government to constrain the ‘brain drain’ from the country, a colossal failure has been brought to limelight by this turnout.
Under practical administration, the applicants were asked to work rigorously for two hours. The work included cleaning sewages and drains. “We are okay with cleaning drains. But we should get some job at least” an MBA graduate said.
The plight of the educated minds, only makes us question the government’s requests to the youth to not to work abroad. When it cannot ensure enough employment to the available qualified chunk of the population, how will it prove justice to those brains who have drained themselves abroad, in case they agree to come back.
This step taken by the government is similar to the recent scenario of demonetization which indicates inadequate formulation and failure to comprehend the future consequences of a particular policy.
