In August 2019 The Patna High Court remarked in this matter, “To our mind, the stifling of (recruitment) process by the bureaucracy itself indicates apathy on the part of the Government in not giving priority to the basic needs of the citizens at large. This prima facie amounts to a failure on the part of the Government in not providing infrastructure or adequate facilities for recruitment in order to fulfill the immediate needs which are not only urgent but fall within the first constitutional duties of the states.”
