Credits the commission with spotless record for the past one year

  • YSR asks commission to draft status note for filling vacant posts in the present year
  • `Objective of the commission is to find the right man for the right job at the right time'
  • Group I & Group II appointments hang in balance awaiting court orders

    HYDERABAD: Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy has asked the Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission (APPSC) to draft and circulate a status note and submit a tentative plan with the objective of filling up vacancies arising in the said year.

    At the golden jubilee celebrations of the APPSC here on Tuesday, he was responding to a request made by APPSC chairman Y. Venkatarami Reddy and other members on the need for a specific calendar for APPSC like the Union Public Service Commission.

    No scandals

    The Chief Minister had a pat for the Commission, crediting it with a clean record with no scandals attributed to it in last one year.

    With such a reputation, he was confident the APPSC could certainly do its bit in achieving the goal of filling up vacancies as soon as they were created, he said.

    Dr. Venkatarami Reddy said the objective of the Commission was to find the right man for the right job at the right time.

    However, he said while the APPSC managed to be fairly successful in achieving the first two objectives, the third, namely the right time, was eluding them.

    Mr. Venkatarami Reddy recalled the recent instances of Group I appointments awaiting a Supreme Court Order and the Group II posts also being left to depend on a Court order.

    Among those present were AP Public Service Commission members C. Venkata Reddy, T. Bhadrayya, B. Ramakrishna Raju and T. Devendranath.

    Best Chief Minister

    The Commission officially congratulated Dr. Rajasekhara Reddy for being adjudged the `third best' Chief Minister.

    The Chief Minister later felicitated several former chairmen, members and secretaries of the Public Service Commission.
