“I am happy to celebrate my birthday with this event. I have won the election with the support of strong youth force who stood beside me,” the MLA said, adding, “At present it is difficult for me to give actual figures of the jobs allotted, as the company officials are shortlisting the candidates and after few days we would come to know about the recruitment.”
