Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, O Panneerselvam, criticized the Tamil Nadu government for not fulfilling its promise to fill 3.5 lakh vacancies in government departments. He urged the DMK-led government to conduct Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC) examinations periodically and fill the vacant posts. Last year, over 1 lakh government employees retired, resulting in a total of 4.5 lakh vacancies in Tamil Nadu services.
Panneerselvam emphasized that these 4.5 lakh vacancies represent 60% of the total government employees in the state. He also called for the government to organize group IV exams in 2023 to fill 50,000 vacant posts. Expressing his disappointment with the DMK government’s failure, Panneerselvam criticized Chief Minister M. K. Stalin for not filling even 10,000 vacant posts.
In addition to addressing the issue of vacancies, Panneerselvam also commented on the Mekedatu Dam, stating that its construction in Karnataka cannot proceed without the permission of the Tamil Nadu government.
