"Hence, the chances of favoritism and nepotism by the ministers and MLAs and party functionaries of the ruling party government are very high which was prevalent on every recruitment. The government has made this policy very casually without considering financial aspects, necessary training programme, engagements and job output of these employees. The State unit of BJP has therefore, viewed it as a political stunt targeting 2019 election only," said the State BJP.

The SDF government is implementing the 'One Family One Job' scheme for those families who do not have a single member in government service. One member from such family would be recruited in casual government service. The SDF legislature party meeting yesterday decided that 15,000 such persons would be appointed in casual government service by December.
