Guwahati: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Friday said that his government will ensure a fair and transparent recruitment process in the state.
Sarma was speaking at an appointment letter distribution ceremony for 11,236 posts in 24 government departments here.
The Assam government’s decision to suspend mobile internet services for four hours on examination days during written examinations for recruitment to Grade 3 and Grade 4 posts last month had drawn flak from several quarters.
“We are committed to fulfilling our pre-poll promise of providing 1 lakh government jobs. and today we are increasing the tally further,” he said.
“We will continue to organise such appointment letter distribution ceremonies till we reach the 1-lakh figure,” Sarma added.
Referring to the criticism over the suspension of internet services, Sarma said the state will not come to a standstill if that is implemented for two hours.
