During the meeting at Lok Bhavan in Lucknow, Adityanath directed all the departments to give details of the vacant posts in order to start the recruitment process for the same. “We will have to fill these vacancies like we have done earlier in employment to around 3 lakh people in a transparent manner," he said.

Speaking to reporters, BJP state vice-president and MLA Vijay Bahadur Pathak said that the Adityanath-led government is the first to go for such large-scale appointments of in the government sector. “I thank our CM Yogi Adityanath for the decision on large scale appointments. Our government is probably the first one to go for such large scale appointments and that too in a transparent manner," he said.
