While the vacant posts are being filled, the government is also creating additional posts where necessary. In the past five months, 28,000 letters of appointment for jobs in various departments of the state government have been distributed to young people.” The governor asserted that the government is committed to maintaining the communal harmony in the state and said, “The government of Bihar consistently works to maintain law and order in the state.
