Uddhot Thackeray’s Shiv Sena has questioned BJP’s illegal employment fairs, demanded a ban and probe from the Election Commission

MUMBAI: The Shiv Sena (Udhu Bala Sahib Thackeray) has filed a petition in the Election Commission, demanding an immediate ban and scrutiny of job fairs, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to issue appointment letters to around 75,000 youth. There is objection to starting a nationwide “employment fair”. Shiv Sena (UDHA) national spokesperson Kishore Tiwari, in a petition filed with the Election Commission, said that these are illegal and unethical, as they violate the All India Service (Conduct) Rules and other rules.
The petition said that the Rozgar Mela is a program organized by the ruling BJP at the Center at the expense of the government for political gain. It is against all civil services, army rules, rules of banks and other public sector institutions. These are sponsored by government funds.
In Maharashtra, job fairs were organized on 22 October under the leadership of Union Ministers Piyush Goyal (Mumbai), Narayan Rane (Pune) and Ramdas Athawale (Nagpur) in the presence of various party leaders. During this time, 800 youths were given appointment letters. On this occasion, opposition Maha Vikas Aghadi leaders like Atul Londhe of Congress, Mahesh Taapsee of NCP and Tiwari of Sena (UDHA) criticized Modi for providing only 75,000 jobs against Modi’s promise of creating 2 crore jobs every year in 2014. Attacked JP.
Tiwari said that the service rules of all these organizations do not recognize or allow such events for political gain, that too only for the ruling BJP, as there was no representative of any other political party. Service rules and regulations prohibit distribution of such appointment letter in the hands of a member of a political party. He said that this is also unethical, as the Election Commission has started the election process for Himachal Pradesh and soon other states will follow suit.
Tiwari said, any such incident to politically benefit the ruling party is not only illegal but also against several judgments of the Supreme Court and the guidelines and code of conduct of the Election Commission. His submission cited Article 32 as a binding duty to comply with Supreme Court judgments, ECI orders and all Central/State Government departments and other public sector initiatives.
Tiwari said that all government organizations have been forced to spend public money and conduct employment fairs in violation of all rules, regulations, norms and orders of the Supreme Court. In the petition, Tiwari urged the Election Commission to immediately ban all future job fairs and investigate whether job fairs are politically motivated with the intention of giving the BJP an edge. Who authorized such programs at public expense?
The Shiv Sena (Udhav) leader said that the manner in which the job fairs were conducted to provide jobs, it gave the impression that candidates were getting government jobs not on the basis of their merit, but because of the BJP’s favour. Meeting with Tiwari said it is absurd, illegal and unethical. What kind of loyalty will these future civil servants show to their official duties or to the common people? They will only follow the orders of BJP leaders who have favored them by giving them government jobs.
Demanding a priority hearing on his petition by the Election Commission, he said that at the rate of 75,000 jobs, it would take more than a century for the BJP to achieve its promise of 2 crore jobs every year in the last nearly 9 years. . Along with this, he termed the pre-poll job fairs for 2024 Lok Sabha as a hoax.
