The Chief Minister’s reply to the Leader of the Opposition, who exposed the corruption in the appointment of hundreds of relatives and relatives in the government and public sector institutions by targeting the PSC, has nothing to do with reality. The Chief Minister claimed that he had created a record in PSC appointments during the four years of the Left government. This is not factual. The record was set at the outdoor appointment. The Chief Minister claims that a record number of 133,000 people were recruited during the Left government. But the UDF recruited 1,42,000 in 4 years and 1,58,680 in 5 years. This can be seen by looking at the figures in PSC.
In addition to the PSC recruitment, more than 10,000 teacher appointments were approved in the teacher package. More than 3,000 empaneled employees have been given permanent appointments in KSRTC. 908 persons were recruited on a permanent basis by creating supernumerary posts without affecting PSC recruitment. 2799 differently-abled people were recruited through Special Drive and 108 people were recruited under the Sports Quota. The UDF government recruited 16,815 people in a transparent and legal manner, subject to government regulations.
In addition, many new posts were created in various departments. The record is 5800 in the health department. University Non-Teaching Appointment and Assoc. The appointment of Public Prosecutor Grade 2 was also left to PSC. The PSC went into the forest and found tribal watchers from the tribes. The aim of the UDF was to leave the appointment of all institutions funded by the government to the PSC. Backdoor recruitment and corruption are taking place in the absence of PSC’s live list. In this context, the UDF has taken an important decision to extend the PSC list for a maximum of four and a half years until the new list comes out, even after the normal term of three years. The PSC list has been extended 11 times in 5 years.
