One lac appointments to be made this year, says Omar

Omar Abdullah about afspaThe Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Saturday said that the government will ‘hopefully’ make one lac appointments in the State by the end of this year.

Omar said this while speaking in the State’s Legislative Assembly. The Chief Minister said that the recruitment agencies have been directed to fast track the process of employment.

Talking about the demands made by State government employees, Omar claimed to have done ‘so much’ for them which ‘no government has done so far’. He said that the government does not want any confrontation with the employees but it likes to resolve their genuine demands by engaging them.

Omar added that some ‘vested interests’ did not want to get demands realized in a congenial atmosphere but instigate employees to come on roads.
