“The previous government (under late Manohar Parrikar) had started the process to have SSSC. We will complete it,” Sawant said replying to a query during the Question Hour in the House.
While assuring that the current vacancies in the government staff was being filled in transparent manner he said that the government sector alone cannot meet the employment needs in the state.
“At present, there are 55,000 government servants, and we can add a maximum of 10,000. Where will the rest go,” Sawant said, imploring the private sector to meet the job demand.
