Having rolled out over one lakh village volunteer posts across the State and another 3 lakh new jobs in the village secretariats, the State government had now decided to recruit 3,000 teacher posts in the school education. This would start rolling out from the last week of September, as directed by Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy. This measure is likely to keep the government above all the previous governments as no government had ever in the State took up recruitment in such a large scale.
According to the latest decision, the government had decided to recruit the teachers from the 2018 District Selection Committee (DSC) list. This includes post graduate teachers, trained graduate teachers, principals, special grade teaches and the school assistants (excluding Telugu and Hindi). The candidates have been waiting for more than two years for the government to open the recruitment. The previous Telugu Desam Party government could not do this as it was mostly tied-up in fighting against the Central government in the last year of its term. The then chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu was busy holding Dharma Porata Deekshas across the State and holding consultations with the leaders of the Congress and its allies to have an alliance against the BJP ahead of the 2019 elections. In the political fight, had kept the recruitment and other issues aside. It was on the last three months of the regime that Chandrababu Naidu launched the welfare schemes for women, farmers and the youth.
Now, Jaganmohan Reddy, in complete contrast to Chandrababu Naidu, had rolled out over 95 per cent of his poll promises in just 100 days. Though the recruitment of the teachers is not part of his promises and purely an administrative decision, his move to fill these vacancies too is a welcome measure in the current politics. This would benefit 3,000 families, which in turn would benefit at least 12,000 persons and thus it is big vote catcher for the government.
