Gov advises unemployed engrs to prepare for APPSC exam

ITANAGAR, 30 May: Governor BD Mishra on Monday advised unemployed engineers of the state to prepare themselves for the forthcoming examinations for the posts of assistant and junior engineers, to be advertised by the APPSC shortly.

He said this while interacting with five unemployed engineers at the Raj Bhavan here.

The governor, who has been pushing hard for expediting the APPSC exam for filling up vacancies in various departments, said that “it is in the best interest of the youths and the state to fill up the vacancies through official procedures, based on merit.”

Mishra said that, once the engineers are appointed, “the engineers working as officiating and who are on dual charges will automatically relinquish their multiple charges.”

He said that the state government is “seriously working on appointing qualified engineers for the vacant posts.”

He also advised the unemployed engineers to form SHGs and “take up startup projects for their sustenance while preparing for the examination.”

He suggested to them to “go for entrepreneurship, cooperative farming, plantation, etc, which have great scope for livelihood in our state.” (Raj Bhavan)
