Professor Mohindru said that some of the mechanical engineering students turned to him because they felt cheated by the Rozgar plans and government promises that the companies had not yet given them employment.
He said that some students have even been exploited by companies under the name of free education under the pretext of the job, but the companies have not yet given them a job.
Professor Mohindru said, “I am the head of the technical department at the main campus of Punjabi University, and some students have reached out to me with complaints that their so-called employers seem to have cheated on them. Our many students who have been selected at these job fairs in the past are frustrated after they were later not allowed to be accepted into their jobs by the recruitment companies. Students Harshdeep Singh and Shivam Kamboj, both students of the Mechanical Engineering Department of Punjabi University in Patiala, got jobs at Cheema Boilers Limited at a state job fair at the Indian School of Business in Mohali, organized by Punjab Ghar Ghar Rozgar & Karobar Mission, the Government of Punjab under the Department of Job Creation and Training on September 18, 2019. Later the company is not allowed to join these students. These students also contacted Punjabi University Vice Chancellor Patiala for help with their case. The unemployed youth of Punjab are running from pillar to pillar to find suitable employment in the state in the context of the Covid19 disaster, ”said Pankaj Mohindru, chairman of the Punjab Human Rights Cell of the Punjab Congress.
He added that the youth were being forced to flee abroad and Congress came to power in Punjab with this manifesto that one member from each family would get a job and otherwise Rs / 2500 unemployment benefit for 36 months could be granted.
“Unemployed youth, especially students studying at various educational institutions, feel that they are being offered below-standard jobs by companies at job fairs that have been organized over the past three years. As a result, Punjab youth are forced to flee to developed countries for superior job opportunities or become addicted to drugs, ”he added.
