TRS Did Not Fill Even 10% Of Vacant Posts: Congress
The TRS government had filled only 7,000 posts through the Public Service Commission, which was less than 10% of the total vacancies, the party alleged.
Hyderabad | 6th February 2018
Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President N Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that the TRS government had failed to fill even 10% of the total vacancies in the various departments.
Speaking after flagging off the "Nirudyoga Chaitanya Yatra" along with AICC Secretary R C Khuntia at Gandhi Bhavan on Tuesday, Reddy said that there were 1.07 lakh vacancies at the time of the formation of Telangana, and a further 60,000-70,000 employees had retired in the last three-and-a-half years, which meant that there were nearly two lakh vacancies in various government departments and corporations. However, the TRS government had filled only 7,000 posts through the State Public Service Commission, which was less than 10% of the total vacancies.
Reddy said that Telangana had become a reality due to the struggles and sacrifices of the students and youth, but Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was misleading these people today continuously about the filling up of vacancies. Also, nearly 5,000 factories had closed during the last four years, which made tens of thousands of more people jobless.
Reddy also slammed the TRS government for not filling the vacant teacher posts. He claimed that the previous Congress government had appointed nearly 12,000 teachers but the KCR Government had failed to appoint a single teacher. Not even a single DSC had been conducted since the formation of Telangana, he said.
The TPCC chief alleged that minister K T Rama Rao was wasting public money on his foreign tours. KTR was just posing for pictures in his "suit-boot", and his foreign tours did not benefit Telangana in any way, Reddy claimed.
Stating that the Congress was all set to come to power in the 2019 elections, Reddy promised that the next Congress government would fill all the vacancies and create lakhs of new jobs in both the public and the private sectors. He said that the Congress government would also give an unemployment allowance of Rs. 3,000 per month to all the unemployed youth.
AICC Secretary R C Khuntia, TPCC Working President Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, Telangana Youth Congress president Anil Kumar Yadav, ex-MP M Anjan Kumar Yadav, GHCC Minorities Department chairman Shaik Abdullah Sohail and other senior leaders were present on the occasion.
The "Nirudyoga Chaitanya Yatra" will cover all the 119 Assembly segments in the next 45 days, and Uttam Kumar Reddy advised Anil Kumar Yadav to conduct meetings in all the segments.
