SSC-CGL to RRB-NTPC~ how voices of crores of silent unemployed Indians shook the system
Staff Selection Commission (SSC) conducts a variety of examinations to recruit new candidates against the yearly vacancies. But just as any other government work, this recruiting process takes "time". Like some candidates who were selected in the final scrutiny of SSC-CGL 2017 are yet to receive their joining letters! The result of the third stage of the 'infamous' CGL-2018 is still due. Day by day commissions movements slowed down to complete stall.
Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) released a massive vacancy of 1 lakh 40 thousand in April 2019. A staggering 2 crores and 50 lakh aspirants have filled up the form to join their dream jobs. But its more than a year. India's largest employer didn't speak up a single word addressing this. No dates Silent moans of crores of berozgar never reached the ears of the higher level of society.
In this age of technology, social media can be weaponized to protest against the system.
After a massive twitter campaign on 1st September, SSC has now notified that all the pending results will be declared on a specified date, within 2020.
On the evening of the Teacher's day, 5th September, lakhs of unemployed youths started to ring bells on their rooftops, protesting against the failure of the government. Twitter trend named "#5baje5minute" (means, 5 minutes at 5 pm) echoed through the online world. The bells of this silent protest shook up the top tier. Within hours of this incident, the Railway Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted addressing this matter. Starting from 15th December, Railways will conduct CBT-1 against the released vacancies.
Open protestors are being beaten by the police. Top Indian media houses are so busy to trend a homicide/murder case, they won't lay their eyes on the misery of these students. So the students have found their own way to protest. The twitter-way!
Twitter has become the place of the modern revolution. The modern age has come at last. You don't need to go down the streets to protest against something.
The bluebird on our palms has now taken flight to shake all the wrongs in the world!
