Haryana Chief Minister Nayab Singh Saini announced on Saturday that the state will soon initiate the recruitment process to fill 50,000 vacant posts. This is part of an ongoing effort to provide employment opportunities and support youth aspirations, he said during the swearing-in ceremony of the new chairman of the Haryana Staff Selection Commission.

The chief minister highlighted the importance of a transparent recruitment system, underlining his administration's commitment to merit-based hiring without any discrimination. 'It is a matter of pride that the youth's faith in the government's functioning has increased as they are securing government jobs without any 'kharchi-parchi' (bribery or favouritism), which was prevalent in previous administrations,' Saini remarked.

In response to the Punjab and Haryana High Court's recent decision to strike down the government's policy to grant additional marks under the socioeconomic criteria to job aspirants, Saini revealed plans to appeal to the Supreme Court to safeguard the interests of candidates from poor families. He criticized past governments for neglecting these vulnerable sections before 2014.
