Dehradun. Since coming to power in his hands, the focus of Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami is to open new jobs in government and self-employment. By doing this, he wants to bring the Congress, which is engaged in making unemployment an election issue, on the back foot. Congress and other opposition parties are attackers on the issue of unemployment.
In the very first cabinet meeting as soon as the Chief Minister took over, he announced to fill 22 thousand posts. He announced that in the first phase, the government will fill 13,000 posts immediately. According to sources, after the announcement, the government is now finding out how many posts of direct recruitment, promotion and backlog are there in the departments. Details have been sought from all the departments regarding these.
On the instructions of the Chief Minister’s Office, the Personnel Department issued instructions to the Additional Chief Secretaries, Principal Secretaries, Secretaries, and Secretaries in charge asking them to give details of the vacant posts. But the details have not come from most of the departments except a few departments. By sending a letter to the Personnel Department again, the departments have been asked to give immediate information.
Chief Minister himself will review
On the instructions of the Chief Minister, information about the current status of the posts has been sought from the departments. Although the government has information about 24 thousand vacant posts, the actual number will be clear only after receiving the details from the departments. After getting the information from the departments, the Chief Minister will review it and issue instructions to start the process of filling them soon.
CM expressed his intention to fill the vacant posts
Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has once again expressed his intention to fill up about 24 thousand vacant posts in the departments. Talking to media persons, he said that the government will not only fill the vacant posts but will also connect the youth with self-employment.
