Tiruchi MP condemns recruitment of north Indian candidates

Tiruchi Lok Sabha MP Su.Thirunavukkarasar on Wednesday condemned the selection of north Indian candidates mostly from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh for various posts especially in Southern Railway.

In a statement, Mr. Thirunavukkarasar said there were nearly one crore youth in Tamil Nadu registered with employment offices. Besides, there was a large number of temporary staff awaiting permanent employment. The selection of a majority of candidates from various north Indian States for the Golden Rock Railway Workshop in Tiruchi was shocking and a matter of concern.

It was surprising as to how more than 300 candidates came to Tiruchi with e-pass for verification of certificates during the pandemic.

Priority should be accorded to native candidates when employment opportunities were created in the States and the government could bring in legal amendments.
