‘Why No Jobs Despite Studying for Years?’ We, PAU Students, Ask Punjab Govt

‘Why No Jobs Despite Studying for Years?’ We, PAU Students, Ask Punjab Govt

The state government has failed to provide employment to educated youngsters like us.

We, the students of Punjab Agricultural University, have been staging protests for the last 15 days as the vacant posts in the state’s agriculture and horticulture departments have not been filled yet.

The state government has failed to provide employment to educated youngsters like us.

Our concern is genuine, and we are in dire need of jobs. This has caused a lot of frustration in our lives. We have done BSc and MSc, and many students are now doing their PhD. It’s as though we do not have any goals now. Our frustration has reached its peak.

To mark our protest, we sold vegetables and polished shoes outside our university to show how unemployment will affect us in the future and we will be forced to take up odd jobs.

According to an RTI filed by one of the students, a total of 501 posts of agriculture development officer and 372 posts of agriculture sub-inspectors are currently vacant.
