Panaji, Oct 7 (IANS) The Goa government will fast-track the process for the recruitment of 10,000 government servants in various departments before the model code of conduct is enforced ahead of the 2022 Assembly polls, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said on Thursday.

"All the recruitments to the 10,000 posts will be carried out. I have ordered fast-tracking of the process (of recruitment) so that it is carried out before the model code of conduct is enforced," Sawant said.

The Chief Minister also said that the government plans to recruit 10,000 employees ahead of the elections, adding that recruitment ads for nearly 8,000 vacancies had already been published.
