The volatile situation of India due to unemployment was unattained by successive government, both in centre and the states alike. Every general election, almost all the political parties include in their manifestoes, assuring to provide employment, but none had ever rolled out any blue-print of generating employment. For a change, the Indian National Congress, during its 84th plenary session, its President Rahul Gandhi, while accepting that last few years of the than United Progressive Alliance (UPA) II, they failed to deliver have put them out of the government, but, the Ruling government have failed badly to create jobs.
It may be reminded the during the 2014 Lok Sabha General Election, the Star Campaigners of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Narendra Damodardas Modi have promised every state that if they are voted to power will generate jobs for all the youth. In spite of have a huge mandates, Modi ambitious Skilled Development Programme and Make in India have failed terribly to bridged the gap of unemployment.

The Meghalaya Legislative Assembly for the first time witnessed an uproar, as the Leader of Opposition (LO) Dr Mukul M Sangma, prevented the Speaker from putting up the Confidence Motion brought to the August House by the ruling Meghalaya Democratic Alliance (MDA) to vote, as he wanted to know which party is leading the government- the National People’s Party (NPP)-led or the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), or a Conglomeration of parties which is leading the government, as, according to Mukul, Meghalaya has shown that it does not want the BJP to be in the government as indicated by the election results.

Meghalaya Secretariat staff could be seen rushing to work right on time, since the new government was installed on March 6, 2018. The same was witnessed during the imposition of President’s Rule in the state. Now the state government employees have no other option but to reach work in time as the newly elected Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma, himself reaches the office at 10 am sharp in the morning. He makes sure he maintains punctuality, also expecting his office staff to maintain discipline. Is this the first step of ‘Change’ he assured in the manifesto for the February 27 poll?
