In a significant political development, Akhilesh Yadav, president of the Samajwadi Party, has taken a sharp dig at the Uttar Pradesh government over its tentative decision to outsource the recruitment of clerical staff in the state police force.

Yadav's comments came in response to a letter circulated among senior police officers suggesting the outsourcing of certain sub-inspector roles due to increasing departmental work. The letter, which emerged on social media, proposed outsourcing posts like assistant sub-inspector (clerk), assistant sub-inspector (accounts), and sub-inspector (confidential).

Yadav questioned the government's reluctance to make direct, permanent appointments despite having a dedicated recruitment board, warning that outsourcing could compromise accountability and sensitive information security. The UP police later clarified via social media that the letter was mistakenly issued for ministerial staff instead of Class IV employees and has since been cancelled. The leader urged the government to abandon the idea, citing growing youth frustration over police recruitment process issues.
