The approved cadre for North is 40,422. All these vacancies should be filled by the Central Government.

Qualified persons not available in the North to fill these vacancies.
For Example :
Vacancy for Nurses cannot be filled by untrained people.
The Health volunteers and qualified but there is being shown as vacancies. Theses could be filled from outside and Health volunteers will be thrown into streets.
May be some times vacancies occur for 50 drivers. At the same time 50 persons will be unemployed.
Drivers vacancies cannot filled with these unemployed persons.
Recently, Volunteer teachers got their appointments. Prior to that one of them shouted at me in my office. After getting the appointment the same person thanked for our efficiency in granting the appointment, with tears.. You may find out from them as to after how many Satyagrahas, demonstrations, rallies, altercations and fights, they got their appointments. Its very easy to throw accusation from outside. Its not easy to eliminate barriers, select qualified persons and take in appriopriate persons, he had said.
