Bhopal: Indicative of the challenge faced by the Modi government on the employment front, as many as 34 PhD holders and 12,000 engineers are among applicants for a 4th grade government job advertised by the Madhya Pradesh government.
What is shocking is that the eligibility requirement for the said job is 10th pass.
Last week, graduates, post-graduates, and M Phil degree holders were found to be among the 2424 applicants vying for the job of 'Coolie' or 'Sahayak' in Maharashtra.
The minimum qualification for the railway porter job is class four pass!.
Last year, 23 lakh people had applied for 368 posts of peon at Uttar Pradesh secretariat.
Meanwhile, the Madhya Pradesh Congress has hit out at the Modi government over rising unemployment in the country.
“This shows the level of unemployment. Both Modi government and Madhya Pradesh government have failed,” the party said.
Expectedly, the state BJP leadership has rejected the charge. “Modi government is working for the welfare of the youth, gradually we will see the difference,” said party leader Alok Sanjar.
