Ganderbal: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha Tuesday said all the vacant posts in various government departments will be filled in next six months through a “major recruitment drive.”
Addressing a gathering in Central Kashmir’s Ganderbal district after inaugurating and laying the foundation stones of series of developmental projects, the LG said that last year, a recruitment drive was initiated by the UT administration and hundreds of youth were recruited through a transparent system.
“Let me announce here that all the vacant posts in various government departments will be filled within the next six months through a proper recruitment drive,” he said, adding that “poor man’s child also has a right to become an officer.”
The LG said recently the daughter of a vegetable seller became a KAS officer. “She met me and stated that she had never dreamed of seeing herself becoming an officer. I assured her that poor people’s children have equal rights that of rich ones,” he said. (KNO)
