Panaji, Mar 15 (PTI) Pritam Asgaonkar, a young woman in her early twenties in Goa, was preparing to join the job of a conductor on state-run buses, after the assembly elections. Although the job was a bit odd, Asgaonkar had decided to take it up because it was a secured government employment under the Indira Bal Rath Yojna, aimed at providing transport facilities to school-going children. Little before the election code of conduct was announced in the last week of December, she received an offer letter. The only formality that was left was her medical examination test, which is mandatory to get through the vacancy. But recent poll results in Goa seems to have changed her fate. Newly-elected Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar has announced that government jobs given by the previous government in violation of model code of conduct have been kept on hold, and will be duly reviewed. "Do you know what it means ? It means, we will have to go back to the ministers again and plead for a job. I managed to get the offer letter after much trouble, waiting outside ministers' chambers," she grumbled refusing to divulge whether she bribed officers or any minister to secure the job. Asgaonkar's tale is no different from 1800 other Goan youths, who were expecting to join government jobs post polls. The Congress-led government had created these vacancies and posts were filled hurriedly violating the code of conduct. Now, youths are regularly seen roaming in premises of various departments in the capital, to check out the fate of their jobs following huge vacancies created in departments like Health, Mining, Animal Husbandry, Public Works Department, Urban development and others.
