Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday announced that the state government will soon start recruitment for 1.62 lakh jobs in various sectors and said the interview procedure has already been done away with to ensure that there is no graft in recruitment.

“My government has a zero-tolerance policy for corruption and we will do everything possible to do so,” he said at a function in Sant Kabir Nagar.

The recruitment process, he said, would be announced soon.

During the function called “Lok Kalyan Samaroh” (public welfare function), Adityanath laid the foundation stone for 85 projects and inaugurated four projects other than flagging off a “School Chalo” rally.

The Chief Minister also listed various other schemes initiate by his government for the welfare of students, youth, farmers and women.
