Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath has been making news since he came to power last month with the new measures he has been announcing on a regular basis to power up the state’s economy. The latest announcement that he has made is all about filling up vacancies. The much popular Chief Minister has been able to implement several laws including crackdown on illegal slaughterhouses and Anti Romeo Squad, checking off the list of promises Bharatiya Janata Party had made in the run-up to the assembly elections. Adding to that, is the new Adityanath plan to fill existing vacancies in the police force in the state, reports NDTV.
Uttar Pradesh is the most populous state in India and the law and order is not of the best kind here and even then a huge number of posts, over 1 lakh, in the state police are lying vacant. Adityanath’s plan aims to recruit more than 33,000 constables and sub-inspectors every year. He plans to achieve the goal by 2021.
