Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's government proposes to recruit more than 1.5 lakh police personnel in the next five years.

In the past too there have been police recruitments, specially in the two regimes of the Samajwadi Party (SP), first when Mulayam Singh Yadav was the chief minister and then when his son Akhilesh Yadav was in power.

Both the recruitment drives were tainted with charges of nepotism and favouritism by the political leaders. The employments were subsequently set aside and challenged in the courts.

The present dispensation, a source said, was laying special emphbasis on ensuring that the process was transparent and judicious.
