The Jadikhe Naisho Hoshom (JNH), the Dimasa Apex Body, Central Committee, Haflong Dima Hasao District, and the Waimijing (NGO), Haflong, condemned in the strongest of terms the Grenade blast which occurred at the residence of Shri. Subrata Hojai, Executive Member, Dima Hasao Autonomous Council and the subsequent recovery of anther Grenade at the official quarter premises of Shri. Mayanon Kemprai, Executive Member, Dima Hasao Autonomous Council on 02nd March 2011 just one day after the discovery of a Grenade at a Petrol Pump in the heart of Haflong town on 01st March'2011, staed a press release signed by Shri Dethang Naiding and Shri Sarbojit Thaosen, presidents of Jadikhe Naisho Hoshom the Waimijing (NGO), respectively
The release maintained that the JNH and Waimijing (NGO), were of the opinion that the government machinery, (law and order, security forces) was not doing enough to nab the culprits and the anti-social elements involved in such destructive activities. In the past few months, they have seen that there have been more than 15 bomb blasts in various places around Dima Hasao District including sabotage of railway track, but so far not a single person has been arrested in this connection. If such activity continues at the time when the State Assembly Elections has just been declared, it was quite doubtful whether the elections can ever be held in a free and fair manner.
It is therefore high time that the Government should act with a strong hand without considering any person, community or group to which the anti-social elements belong. Henceforth, the JNH and Waimijing (NGO), will not and shall not allow the peace and tranquility of the district to be disrupted by unscrupulous people in any manner, the release added.
Unity Education Foundation (UEF) met Labor & Employment Minister Prithibi Majhi recently to press for the modernization of Employment Exchanges in both the rural and urban reaches of Assam. In a memorandum to Majhi, UEF drew his attention to the burgeoning problem of unemployment in the state which it held responsible for anti-social behaviour, increasing insurgency and terrorism in India's NorthEast; Assam in particular.
The proposal seeked online registration facilities for the issuance of employment registration, renewal, transfer and user-friendly digitized platforms in Employment Exchanges. It suggested networking with dedicated government and private websites to work as credible clearing houses between job seekers and employers coupled with an understanding of vocational training. Introduction of sms and email alerts for sharing job-seeker's databases with employers for the extention of employment services through Public-Private-Partnerships and offer facilities for screening and short listing of prospective employees.
This organisation felt would play a pro-active role in redefining objectives of private sector placements and convert Employment Exchanges into centres of excellence for the employment of the youth. Demographic dividends may become demographic disaster if education, employability and employment are poorly managed. While the rectification of Universities and schools will take a long time, the reformation of our skill-system and Employment Exchanges are achievable, urgent and in the hands of the State Governments the memorandum stated an wished for technological developments in the interest of the youth population.
