Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy announced that his government is committed to fill two lakh job vacancies by December 2024

Hyderabad: Fulfilling yet another election promise made during recent Assembly polls in Telangana state, the new Congress government reconstituted TSPSC Board on Thursday.

Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan on Thursday approved the appointment of retired IPS officer and former DGP M. Mahender Reddy as the chairman of TSPSC. The governor also approved the appointment of five members for TSPSC who included retired IAS officer Anita Rajendra, Amir Ullah Khan, Prof. Narri Yadaiah, Yarabadi Ram Mohana Rao and Palavai Rajani Kumari.

The reconstitution of the TSPSC board paves way for the issuance of job notifications soon. The Congress in its manifesto for Assembly polls promised to fill two lakh job vacancies within a year of coming to power.
