Madhya Pradesh: Over 1,100 unemployed youth appear for walk-in interview for Congress media, social media team
Over 1,100 unemployed youths from different parts of Madhya Pradesh have responded to the Congress' call for walk-in interviews for spokespersons and social media activists.
The interviews would be held for two days at the state party office in Bhopal starting Thursday.
Among those who have applied for the posts of district and state spokespersons include post graduates many of whom claim have cracked prestigious competitive exams. Two such aspirants claimed they had cracked the mains exam of the Union Public Service commission.
Many of those who have applied are those who are associated with the National Students Union of India and the Youth Congress.
The interviews will be taken by a special team that has been sent by the party's national media cell. The entire process is being monitored by AICC general secretary in charge of Madhya Pradesh Deepak Bawaria and state Congress president Arun Yadav.
According to Madhya Pradesh chief Congress spokesman KK Mishra, the excitement among the youth to be part of the media and social media team of the state Congress is indicative of the change in the mood of the people.
"People in Madhya Pradesh are fed up with the present government. Change is in the air and the large number of youths who have responded to the Congress call shows that people now look up to the party to provide the much needed change," Mishra while talking to India Today said.
An aspirant for the post of district spokesman from the Agar Malwa district while taking to India Today said he was excited about joining the Congress team as the youth are now shifting towards the Congress.
"The BJP had promised jobs but is now offering pakoras. The sons of their leaders are making billions and they are asking us to make pakoras. The Congress is the only option left now," he said.
