RANCHI: The state cabinet that removed Hindi and Sanskrit from the list of mandatory languages that candidates taking examinations conducted by the Jharkhand Personnel Selection Commission (JSCC) for grade III and IV government positions have to delete, has sparked controversy in Jharkhand.
This measure by the State Government has witnessed a storm of protests over what the BJP called “discriminatory policy.” In particular, Soren’s Cabinet approved a new knowledge of policy-making naming of the mandatory regional and tribal languages for government positions in the state through the Jharkhand State Personnel Selection Commission.
Additionally, job seekers in the state must have knowledge of local culture, language, and tradition, as well as earn at least 30 percent grades in a regional and tribal language that will be added to qualifications as they prepare. the list of merits. The regional and tribal languages for which any candidate can take the state level exam are: Mundari, Kharia, Ho, Santhali, Khortha, Panchpargania, Bangla, Urdu, Kurmali, Nagpuri, Kurukh and Hate. Urdu has remained as one of the languages in 12 language documents, while Hindi and Sanskrit that were there before have been removed.
The BJP’s national vice president and former chief minister, Raghubar Das, raised strong opposition against the decision, calling it “unconstitutional and against the interests of the people of Jharkhand.” Das further added that the new hiring policy of the Hemant Soren government is not only unconstitutional, but also goes against the interests of Adivsai-Moolwasi who lives in the state, who will in fact be deprived of employment by this policy.
“Hindi has been left out of the basic languages even though Hindi is the medium of instruction and teaching in schools run by the state government. Hemant Soren’s government is trying to remove Hindi from the mandatory role with ulterior motives so that local state students face problems passing state exams, ”said Das.
According to Das, the state government had complicated the new service rules to face legal hurdles. Das also said that the new service rules are aimed at disrupting the state’s social harmony.
BJP state spokesman Pratul Shahdeo also claimed that the new policy approved by the state cabinet is discriminatory against Hindi and Sanskrit and is an attempt to appease Muslims, as Urdu has remained one of the languages. in 12 language newspapers, while the Hindi and Sanskrit that went there before have been dropped.
However, the JMM ruling stated that all people whose umbilical cord is attached to the soil of Jharkhand would benefit from this policy, which is historical. He also claimed that the new recruitment policy actually favors locals, including Adivasis – Moolvasis, Dalits, and minorities.
“Until now, there were too many shortcomings in the employment policy that it was challenged in court on several occasions,” said JMM spokesman Supriyo Bhattacharya.
Despite appeasing anyone, the new policy aims at assimilation, he added.
Interestingly, the domicile criteria for hiring for government jobs in Jharkhand have always generated controversy since the state was created in Bihar in 2000. The previous BJP government had set 1985 as the base year for determining domicile status when that the JMM and Congress strongly opposed it and promised that they would change the base year. But the JMM-led alliance government did not, however, notify any new base years after he came to power.
Incidentally, the BJP government had previously formulated a policy to reserve all Grade III and IV jobs in eleven tribal districts of the state only to locals hailing from those respective districts who were hailed by the Adivasi-Moolwasies, but the High Court Jharkhand rejected it, calling it discriminatory.
