Haryana Chief Minister Nayab Singh Saini revealed on Saturday that the state government will commence recruitment to fill 50,000 vacant positions, in line with its efforts to provide employment opportunities to the youth. The announcement was made during the swearing-in ceremony of the new chairman of the Haryana Staff Selection Commission, Himmat Singh.

Saini congratulated Singh, expressing hope that he would fulfill his duties with dedication and prioritize the aspirations of Haryana's youth. Emphasizing a 'transparent' recruitment process, Saini highlighted that the current administration has provided jobs purely based on merit, devoid of bribery or favoritism practices prevalent in the past.

Addressing the recent Punjab and Haryana High Court ruling quashing the state's policy of granting additional marks under socioeconomic criteria, Saini assured that the government would appeal to the Supreme Court. He mentioned that the criteria were aimed at helping candidates from disadvantaged backgrounds and criticized previous administrations for their neglect of such families.
