Minister of State for Home Harsh Sanghavi stated on Tuesday that 8000 constables will be recruited in the Gujarat Police.
Addressing the House, he said that the Home Department will recruit 8000 additional officers this year. After the recruitment announcement, the physical examination will be conducted. Notably, in Gujarat Police above 2.40 lakh posts are approved.
There are 1.26 lakh permanent police personnel, one lakh personnel are associated with Gram Rakshak Dalak and Sagar Suraksha Dal. More than 14,000 officers are on contract for 11 months. About 14000 posts are still vacant in the police.
Harsh Sanghavi, 37, stated that 60,000 police officers have been recruited in the past nine years. He criticized the sluggish recruitment process under the Congress regime. Sanghavi, who was elected from Surat’s Majura Assembly seat for a third time, informed the Gujarat Assembly that the 8,000 open positions also include the women’s battalion of the SRP.
Hardik Patel, who spearheaded the Patidar movement for reservation in 2015, commended the state home department’s efforts during this discussion.
At the Vidhan Sabha, Hardik Patel referred to Gujarat’s predicament 22 years ago. “Now, it is a matter of pride that the BJP government in Gujarat has grown stronger over the past five years and advanced the state in terms of technology,” he said. After Hardik Patel’s commendation of the Home Department, Congress MLA CJ Chavda has commended the state police. He mockingly remarked: “Today, individuals who are accused of sedition, brag about patriotism.”
Hardik retorted that the indictment against him was sedition, not treason, asking how Congress would be able to determine our patriotism. “We are descended from that Sardar, albeit Congress does not recognise him as such.”
According to Congress MLA Shailesh Parmar, the amount of alcohol and narcotics recovered in Gujarat exceeds the Home Department’s annual budget. The chief whip of Congress said that the National Health Survey data showed a rise in Gujarat women’s alcohol consumption.
Praising the head of the State Monitoring Cell, he said: “He’s doing a fine job, snooping instances are happening under him. Before the raid, the bootleggers learn about it. There are information leaks inside the police force.”
