Haryana Assembly Opposition Leader Bhupinder Singh Hooda has accused the BJP-JJP government of working to ruin the state’s education system.

“The aim of this government is for the youth of Haryana to be deprived of education and employment. To achieve this, teachers are not given to schools and grants are not given to universities,” he alleged.

Mr. Hooda said the state government is targeting universities after bankrupting schools in Haryana and that is why he has decided to give loans to universities instead of grants. “It looks like the government is preparing to auction off universities and hand them over to private hands. First the universities will be in debt and then orders will be given to sell them. With this decision (loans to universities) by the government, education in the state will become more expensive, due to which poor and middle class children will be deprived of college and university level education. Congress will therefore oppose this decision on all platforms,” he said.

The Congress leader said there are around 40,000 vacancies in the education department and the government is not taking action on recruitments. “This is the reason why Haryana has the highest unemployment rate in the country. The youths of Haryana are agitating against unemployment and instead of creating permanent jobs, the government is encouraging the practice of outsourcing through a skills company,” he said.

“During the term of Congress, he had made a policy to curb this contractual practice, but now the government itself is exploiting young talents by becoming an entrepreneur by doing low-wage temporary recruitments. There is a lot of corruption even in temporary recruitment,” said the former chief minister.
