Railways has released the vacancy for Assistant Loco Pilot recruitment after many years, due to anger among the youth of Bihar. On Saturday, a campaign was launched to increase the number of vacancies in Lakhs of Youth Posts.
RRC ALP Bharti 2024: After six years, vacancies for Assistant Loco Pilot were released by the Railways. Angered by the low number of vacancies, 22 lakh candidates nationwide organized a protest campaign on Saturday. The candidates have started the campaign by tweeting the hashtag IncreaseRailwayALVPacancy. This hashtag remained among the top ones trending for the whole day. Candidates said that the Railways which has given a maximum number of vacancies has released the least number of vacancies.
At the same time, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also came out in support of the unemployed candidates. He has written that when every third youth of the country is a victim of unemployment, the Prime Minister has once again betrayed them. This time the fraud is on those students who come from ordinary families and work hard for 18-18 hours, who live in small rented rooms and dream big. Where is the promise of 2 crore jobs?
