Hyderabad: Home Minister P Sabitha Reddy on Monday promised that no injustice would be done to any region in the state in the recruitment of Sub-Inspectors of police, shortly after she met Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and discussed the recruitment test.
Ms Indra Reddy’s meeting with the Chief Minister comes in the backdrop of the Telangana JAC insisted on not conducting the said test until the controversial Clause 14 F was scrapped, while the United Andhra JAC demanding that the test goes ahead as announced.
Speaking to media persons later, the Home Minister stated that no injustice would be done to any region, particularly the Telangana candidates.
Out of 1290 posts, 423 will go to Telangana region, and 425 to Hyderabad and balance would go to other zones. The recruitment will be done on Zonal basis, she said.
In all 18200, candidates would write the exam, out of these, 8,000 candidates are from Telangana.
Caught between the proverbial devil and the deep sea, the contentious SI recruitment test was being postponed much to the disadvantage of the candidates and the officers concerned.
Lack of sufficient strength had hit the police security and other arrangements in the state. (INN)
