Yogi Adityanath makes huge announcement, to fill up over 1.62 lakh vacancies in the police department

Yogi Adityanath in Gorakhpur has stated that his government will soon open up opportunities to fill the 1,62,000 jobs in the police department. Last year, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh had assured his commitment towards generating 70 lakh jobs in the state during the 5 years of his government. In 2017, the Supreme Court had directed the state government to fill the 1.5 lakh police vacancies in the state by 2021 citing it will help improve the law and order situation in the state.

The state has witnessed several irregularities in the past with regards to recruitment in the police department. In 2008, the Allahabad High Court had ordered a CBI inquiry into the alleged police recruitment scam over which the Mayawati government had sacked over 20,000 constables appointed during the tenure of the previous Samajwadi Party government.

Yogi Adityanath assured, “We are coming up with 1,62,000 vacancies in the police department. We will provide employment to Uttar Pradesh youth in it on their merit without being biased. Anyone who tries to indulge in corruption in the process will be sent to jail.”

Since becoming the Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath has been trying hard to generate employment for the youth of the country. At the Rozgar summit in Lucknow, he had said last year, “The manner in which people have chosen Uttar Pradesh for investment, their excitement and inclination is being observed… we believe that of the 1 crore unemployed, we will be in a position to provide jobs to 70 lakh in the coming five years… they will be extended opportunities through our programmes.”

Recently, Yogi Adityanath launched the ‘One District One Product’ scheme which is expected to generate 5 lakh jobs. The scheme is targeted at providing artisans and craftsmen in the culturally rich and diverse state a profitable alternative towards preserving their heritage. The scheme is expected to pay rich dividends towards the preservation and promotion of traditional industries.
