Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi today said one lakh government jobs would be created in the next one year.
Of the one lakh jobs, 12,000 posts would be of police constables, 2,250 sub-inspectors, 3,000 jail wardens, 5,000 doctors, 4,200 agricultural coordinators and 3,100 panchayat secretary among others, an official release said.
At a meeting held here, Manjhi instructed the officials to expedite the recruitment process.
Earlier, the chief minister hit out at the Centre over its purported move to implement the Uniform Civil Code and repeal Article 370 of the Constitution.
"If the central government implements the Uniform Civil Code and repeals Article 370 providing special status to Jammu and Kashmir, national integrity would be in danger," he said at a function in Ara in Bhojpur district today.
Manjhi also cautioned the people not to fall in the trap of communalism and maintain communal harmony for the development of the state and the nation.
"The central policies have neglected Bihar. The Centre did not give anything to Bihar in its general budget. It has not taken any welfare measures for the poor, labourers working in the unorganised sector and farmers during its first 100 days," said Manjhi.
He alleged that the condition of National Highways in Bihar was very bad and the Union government has not reimbursed Rs 1,000 crore spent for their repair during the period when Nitish Kumar was the Chief Minister.
"Bihar should get Rs 40,000 to 50,000 crore from the central taxes. It is not being given. Even the target of completing 6 lakh Indira Awas Yojna during this financial year was reduced to 2.8 lakh by the Centre," added Manjhi.
He said the state government has formed a committee to make a Commissionerate for Ara and efforts were on to establish a medical college and an indoor stadium there.
Manjhi also extended his good wishes to teachers of the state on the occasion of Teachers' Day tomorrow.
