The BJP government has been quite liberal in giving jobs under the conventional ‘die-in-harness’ scheme .
During the last twenty months between March 2018 and 12th November 2019 ,total 994 eligible candidates have been given jobs under the ‘die-in-harness’ scheme.
Addressing a Press conference minister for agriculture Pranjit Singha Roy said that after the BJP government had come to power the opposition CPIM had unleashed a ‘mischievous propaganda’ that giving jobs under ‘die-in-harness’ would be stopped . ‘But we have continued with the scheme on humanitarian ground there is no question of changing this system’ said Minister Pranjit Singha Roy
He also gave details of the posts to which the appointments have been given.
