In a statement, PMK Founder Dr S Ramadoss condemned the lethargic attitude of the state government in filing the vacancies. Stating that the appointments are made based on the seniority list, he said the government is in possession of the seniority list and can fill the vacancies within a day if it decides so.

He said the vacancies are severely affecting the admission and academic activities of the colleges, as per a report by The New Indian Express.
