50 percent reservation in government jobs for women in Assam: Congress

Guwahati: Political parties are leaving no stone unturned to announce some big “promises” ahead of the upcoming assembly elections. Days after promising to withdraw the contentious Citizenship Amendment Act, the Assam Congress has come up with yet another big “ticket announcement” – 50 percent reservation in government jobs for women.

“Congress is a solution-oriented party. The five major problems that Assam faces are the CAA, the burning issue of unemployment, inflation and the general stress among women that they are feeling left out in the Assam growth story. While we have already announced a promise of 5 lakh government jobs, it was the dream of former chief minister (late) Tarun Gogoi that 50 per cent jobs would be reserved for women,” Deputy leader of Congress in Lok Sabha, Gaurav Gogoi, told NDTV.
