Bhubaneswar: Jeypore MLA Tara Prasad Bahinipati today threatened that he along with a large number of unemployed youths will join the Maoists if the Government fails to provide jobs to the youths of Koraput district.
Earlier, the Congress MLA had demanded district level selection of candidates in Government jobs in Koraput.
“I want jobs for unemployed youths in Koraput district. I have also raised the issue in several forums. But nothing tangible has happened as yet. I, along with the unemployed youths will join the Maoists if no concrete measure in providing jobs is taken by the Government,” threatened Bahinipati.
He said that a large number of educated youths are deprived of employment opportunities even as ruling BJD has been highlighting its achievements.
He also said that massive agitation and Koraput bandh will be held in near future to press the demand.
