- Yogi Adityanth submits plans for police recruitment
- UP force has more unfilled positions than any other state
- Supreme Court last week asked states to share plans urgently
Yogi Adityanath, who took over as Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh a little over a month ago, has said that he plans to recruit about 33,000 constables and sub-inspectors every year, to fill the gap by September 2021.
The Supreme Court also said that if there are delays, the blame will fall upon the Principal Secretary or senior-most bureaucrat in the state's Home Ministry.
The case was filed in 2013 as a Public Interest Litigation.
