Earlier last month, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann had held his first Cabinet meet and had approved filling up 25,000 vacant posts in various state departments, including 10,000 in the police force.
Mann had announced the decision in a video message and had said that the process of advertisement and notification for these jobs would be initiated within a month. He had stated that the jobs will be given on merit.
There will be no discrimination, no “sifarish” (recommendation) and no bribe, Mann had said.
Chaired the first cabinet meeting. The Punjab cabinet has approved notification of 25,000 job vacancies within one month.
As we promised before the election, jobs opportunities for our Punjab's youth will be the topmost priority of AAP Govt.

This “historic” decision would open new vistas of employment for the youth by providing jobs to them in the government sector through a transparent and merit-based mechanism, he had said.

Unemployment, notably, has been one of the major issues that Mann’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had raised during the recently-concluded Punjab assembly polls and the party had promised to take the first cabinet decision of offering jobs after it came to power.
