Hyderabad: Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Monday said the government would fill 1.12 lakh vacancies in various departments before its term ends in 2019 as promised. Nobody needs to doubt the TRS government’s commitment on this, he told the Assembly.
Speaking during the Question Hour, Mr Rao said, “The state has nearly four lakh sanctioned posts, of which nearly 1.12 lakh are vacant due to retirements and creation of new posts. We cannot recruit as per our whims and fancies. We need to follow procedure, which takes time.”
Stating that the government was committed to filling the vacancies, he said, “We will make 1,000 more appointments over these vacancies but not less.”

Congress MLA S.A. Sampath Kumar alleged that TSPSC was resorting to irregularities in the recruitment process. Mr Rao strongly condemned these allegations and appreciated TSPSC chairman Ghanta Chakrapani for bringing major reforms in the recruitment process....
