A large number of candidates for recruitment to vacant posts of constables in state police today organised a demonstration in front of the state police headquarter along the Akhaura road. Besides slogan shouting in the course of demonstration representatives of the candidates met in deputation with the DGP Amitava Ranjan and apprised him of their condition and demanded immediate immediate publication of the results of written exam for recruitment much earlier. The DGP is reported to have assured them that he will look into the matter.

Sources informed of the issue said that the state police had issued an advertisement inviting applications from suitable candidates for recruitment to 1000 posts of constables through competitive exam. While the advertisement had been published/uploaded on September 10 2021 the remaining part of the recruitment process got delayed upto the end of the year 2022 by the outbreak of the Corona pandemic . A fresh initiative in the process was taken in January this year as the written exam for recruitment of physically fit candidates came off on January 28 2024 but even though six months have already passed since the exam the results have not yet been declared. No notification by the police department explaining the reasons for delay has as yet been published.

“We to launch the protest programme today in front of the police headquarter under compulsion; our time is being wasted with false hopes and we are advancing in age but the state government is sitting pretty on this crucial issue, unconcerned about our plight” said a candidate for recruitment on condition of anonymity. Anger is rising among people over the state government’s dilly dallying over recruitment to huge number of vacant posts in various government departments despite crippling shortage of employees and teachers in all departments including education.
