The Congress leaders were claiming that "state Government has ignored education, which is its Primary responsibility. It is the responsibility of the state government to fill up thousands of vacant posts of teachers. The Congress leaders claimed that the vacant seats should have been filled immediately in view of the code of conduct for December elections.
However, the CM remains busy in his personal publicity and favoring his favorites. As a result, thousands of young people qualified to become teachers have remained jobless. Thus, Gujarat government has insulted educated youth and education world by not fitting thousands of posts of teachers.
