Khattar said that extensive planning strategy is required before any recruitment process is initiated, be it hiring teachers, doctors or engineers. There was a time when there was a lot of demand for engineers. Today it has decreased. In today’s era, recruitment of doctors is the need of the hour. Therefore opening medical colleges in every district of the state is the utmost priority of the State Government.
