Chief Minister of the Telangana, KCR declared that he is going to fill 80,039 vacancies in the state in all departments. As soon as this was announced in the assembly, this is what the whole state media has been talking about. KCR also clarified that the notifications for the jobs will be issued from March 9. Though the announcement was made, until now, there is no clear data about the job vacancies.
Even government officials have not said anything about it. It has been announced in the assembly but .. so far no one has spoken a word. TSPSC chairman Janardhan Reddy, who has been giving interviews to the media in the morning, has also been criticized for being reluctant to talk about the dates of the possible notifications. Seeing all this, the students say that there are doubts as to whether there KCR’s announcement in the assembly is simply a hoax created to divert people from real problems in the state.
However, if we examine the track record of the government in terms of releasing job notifications, one could say that it is not a good one. Government sources have leaked to the media that filling such a large number of vacancies is an impossible job for TSPSC, and the government might have to come up with a new board itself. Although the Group jobs in the state will be filled by the TSPSC, it seems likely that the government will decide on filling all the other posts by the new board. It is learned that the same matter has already been discussed with senior IAS officers.
Analysts expect to set up a TS Recruitment Board and hand over leadership responsibilities to two IAS officers. Sources further indicate that along with the technical jobs, the recruitment of engineering jobs will be handed over to this new board. Meanwhile, the unemployed youth in the state are questioning KCR on making these bold announcements in the assembly without a proper plan and delay in releasing notifications dates. Many are also worried about the possible delay in forming the new board and assigning responsibilities to the IAS officers, all in all, people are expecting that the TRS government will eventually push the notifications dates and keep people waiting until the elections time. Analysts express concern over these ambigious announcements from the chief minister.
In the last few years, people clearly witnessed the growing unrest among the youth, lack of jobs, many students committing suicide out of the depression caused by unemployment. Overall, the KCR statement did not inspire confidence in any of the unemployed. The steps taken after the announcement indicate that. These consequences of unsure management from the government is making people lose faith in the KCR regime.
