Dashmita, who lives in Orissa, says that my father used to work as a laborer and from that the entire house was spent, since he became ill, the mother started working. My two younger sisters and one brother are studying. I worked very hard for this exam and also passed. It was a dream that I would be able to take care of the whole family. But my dream has been shattered due to non-filling of all the posts. She says that when the girl leaves the house for a week, the villagers talk about all kinds of things, asking if the girl has run away. Even after listening to many things of the villagers, the family members are supporting me in my fight. They know that we are fighting for our rights.
what is the whole matter
In July 2018, the notification for the recruitment of Constable (GD) in CAPF, NIA, SSF and Rifleman (GD) in Assam Rifles was out. On March 31, 2020, this notification was modified and told that the vacant posts are 60,210. That is, recruitment has to be done for so many posts. For this, a total of 30,41,284 youths participated in which girls were also included. A total of 1,09552 candidates were found qualified after all the written, physical, medical examinations. Then on January 2021 the final result of the exam was declared. But instead of 60,210, only 55,913 candidates were selected.
battle to fill
Then from February 2021, the youth started fighting with the demand to fill the remaining 4297 posts. The youth told that we first staged a dharna at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar for about a year. Submitted memorandum to all MPs. Three MPs also raised their voice in Parliament but got no response. Then went on a fast unto death for 72 days in Nagpur. After which minister Ramdas Athawale in the central government assured us that we would get a meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah. We were also given time. When we 10 youth reached Delhi, it was told that the meeting could not take place.
‘As we go to meet God’
The youth who reached Delhi on foot told that then we decided that as we go to meet God, in the same way we will come from Nagpur on foot to meet the Home Minister. About 160 youths started their journey on foot from Nagpur, including 35 girls. The youth told that we were stopped from place to place. During the fast unto death, even the pregnancy test of the girls was done to break the morale. Pressure is being put on our family members. On the way too, the hoteliers were told not to help us. The youth said that we will not break because we are demanding our rights.
