UP CM Yogi Adityanath asks govt officers to push filling up vacancies


Lucknow: After BJP‘s loss of 29 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh, chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday held a meeting with heads of administrative departments, and among other instructions, asked them to expedite filling up vacant positions in government departments.

In the current Lok Sabha season, unemployment, tardiness in filling government posts and paper leaks became a huge issue and was believed to have contributed to the BJP’s decline in the state.

Yogi has asked officers of departments where appointments are to be made to immediately send requisitions to the selection commissions. He stressed on examining the rules thoroughly before sending the requisitions, making sure no erroneous requisitions are sent, and to decide a timeline for the selection process. He asked the officials to maintain details of welfare schemes of labhartis on the CM dashboard for efficient monitoring, adding that there should be no unnecessary delays in paying wages under rural jobs scheme NREGS.
