The government will soon initiate recruitment process to appoint lecturers, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said in the Assembly on Monday.

He was replying to JD(S) member H D Revanna’s question that most colleges in rural pockets lack teaching and non-teaching staff and infrastructure.

Revanna had also said that the then JD(S)-BJP government had started colleges in 55 taluks and presently 964 lecturers posts are lying vacant in colleges. For this, CM said that the government that had started too many colleges should have recruited teachers and staff.

New Colleges on Hold

Agriculture Minister Krishna Byregowda said that the government has decided to withhold plans to start new colleges, as it has to focus on improving infrastructure in agriculture colleges. “We have started more colleges than required,” he said.

Byregowda said that recruitment process has started in University of Agriculture Sciences, Bangalore. Revanna said that about 3,642 posts are lying vacant as against 5,720 posts in the Agriculture Department.
