Jaipur: The Rajasthan government will hire 10,453 computer instructors on a permanent basis for the first time. The education department made the announcement in a tweet on Saturday. The recruitments have got a financial nod from the finance department.
The government was earlier planning to recruit computer instructors on a contractual basis. The organizations of unemployed youths started protesting against the decision. Protests were even held in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh. Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi then assured a delegation of protestors from Rajasthan that the computer instructors would be recruited on a permanent basis. The Rajasthan cabinet then cleared a proposal in this regard. Education minister Govind Singh Dotasara tweeted that the recruitments have got financial approval from the finance department and the government will recruit 10,453 computer instructors.
An office-bearer of an organization of unemployed youths said that it was a big victory for those who have completed computer courses, but didn’t get any job security. “We have been demanding this for a long time. The government has finally accepted our demand. It’s a huge victory for us. We had protested several times. Police even lathi-charged protestors from time to time,” he said.
